Dennis Dixon to STart in TN
Coach Tomlin says Dennis Dixon will start again against the Titans. “It starts that we won, and I thought that he got better as the game went on, there were some third down situations early in the game where he was delivering the ball to the appropriate target, but it was falling short. As the game went on I thought that he was not only making the routine plays but creating a little bit. Stepping up in the pocket and hitting Hines down the middle of the field on a third-and-8 was a signature play in terms on how he evolved over the course of the game. We are going with him because we assume he is going to continue to evolve not only in this week’s preparation but when he steps into that stadium as well.”
In other news, while Max Stark’s ankle injury was reported to not be as bad as we first thought, the Steelers announced that he’ll sit out Sunday’s game. Starks suffered the ankle injury during their opening game against the Atlanta Falcons, in which the Steelers chalked up a big win. The 28-year-old offensive tackle suffered a sprained ankle when a player fell on his right leg. Some sources reported that he could miss as many as four weeks; however, it was confirmed that Starks has a normal ankle sprain, which should take less time for recovery.
Since the starting offensive tackle isn’t available for Sunday’s match up, Jonathan Scott will make his first start for the Pittsburgh Steelers on the left side. “Jonathan has been a big addition to our outfit, and we expect him to play great ball if Max is unavailable,” said Tomlin
The Steeler defense should keep them in this one. However, football betting fans should consider themselves warned that the Titans are the favorites to win Sunday’s game.
