Steelers are Betting Favorites at Sports Betting Sites on TNF vs. Titans

Ben Roethlisberger: NFL needs to 'get rid of' Thursday night games

Ben Roethlisberger: NFL needs to 'get rid of' Thursday night games

Perhaps that 17-point, fourth-quarter rally will spark this offense into life as they head into a favourable-looking second half of the campaign that sees them play five of their remaining seven games at Heinz Field but improvement is required ahead of hosting New England on December 17. "Thursday Night Football should be illegal".

Just like the Steelers, they have made winning games look hard but head coach Mike Mullarkey has described his players as "resilient" and a touchdown from DeMarco Murray - his third of the game - just about sealed the deal against the Bengals. Just play Mondays and Sundays. It's so tough on guys.

Roethlisberger's biggest strife with the process is that it doesn't allow enough time for the players to physically and mentally prepare for everything that is entailed in an National Football League game.

"Both teams are going through it, so I'm not just speaking on ours", Roethlisberger continued. You've got to let your body recover a little bit.

Most football players agree with Big Ben.

Ironically one weapon the Steelers might have to fight not just a short week, but what a defense can bring, is the no-huddle. As bad of an idea as it is to make teams play two games in a five-day span, Roethlisberger's diatribe isn't suddenly going to excuse him from taking the field on Thursday. The betting is going in favor of the Titans at the moment, with 53% of the bets going against the Steelers to cover and 47% for. Their O/U trends are 5-1 in their last 6 games following a win, 6-2 in their last 8 games overall, 13-5-1 in their last 19 games following an ATS loss, 5-2 in their last 7 games on the grass and vs. AFC, and 4-1 in their last 5 road games vs. a team with a winning home record. Harrison missed the Steelers Week 10 game with a back issue while Mitchell left the Sunday game against the Indianapolis Colts with an ankle injury. Roethlisberger believes these injuries are happening because the players aren't getting enough time to recover when they play on a Thursday. You'd never hear this kind of rant, on day one of preparation no less, from Tom Brady about having to play on Thursday.
