The final score was 31-14, but this game was much closer than that.

Four turnovers to none will do that.

I know Ben Roethlisberger said he was going to go into this game loose after the Steelers clinched the division title and a bye in the first round of the playoffs but I didn't realize he meant he was going to be loose with the football.

Chris Kemoeatu had an awful game. Ike Taylor too.

Chris Gardocki actually had a good game, for those of you keeping track.

That was one positive to take out of this one.

The Titans were pressing the Pittsburgh receivers a lot to take away the short passes that had been working so well in recent weeks. That opened some stuff up downfield, but it also caused Roethlisberger to get sacked and pressured on three-step drops because his primary reads were covered.

Stomping on Terrible Towels is really a meaningless act, but you can bet Mike Tomlin will use it as a motivational tool the next time these teams meet - in about a month.

Yes, the Steelers and Titans will meet in the AFC Championship - unless Baltimore goes to Tennessee and beats the Titans.

Tomlin said he will play the Browns next week as a regular game.

The guess here, though, is that he'll play it more like a preseason game. Once the Steelers get up 21 or so points - roughly three minutes into the second quarter - he'll start pulling some key starters.

This guy's delussional. We're not going up 21 points on anybody with this offense.

We'd beat detroit 12-9.

The Brown's defense isn't that bad. So it very well could be 12-7. (Browns get a pick six for a TD.

Benson had a good game against them, but they shut down Westbrook the week before that. So who knows what to think of their D.

Plus Benson had darn near 40 carries....4.5 yard average, so the 171 yards rushing looks deceiving. The Stains suck...if Dorsey is playing we are fine.

well giving up 4 and a half yards a carry to benson is pretty bad, regardless of how many carries he got. the stains suck, it will be an easy win. i bet the defense alone puts up more points than the browns do

If we didn't have the bye week, then I'd obviously agree about the rest. We need to get our guys in a groove and feeling good about themselves headed into the playoffs...the Browns are the perfect matchup for that. I'd like to see three quarters of solid play next week, then get a head start on the bye week. Too much rest could be a bad thing.

thats true, too much rest is not a good thing, but to risk injuries in a meaningless game is not smart. imagine if ben or harrison goes down in the first two quarters? who is to say that the browns wont take any cheap shots at ben? maybe play the starters for one quarter imo

I'd deactivate the guys that got hurt in the Titan game (Ben, Harrison, Clark) and play everyone else in the first half only. I would give Lefty the first half, and Dixon the second half (similar to a pre-season game).

there are a couple things to consider here-

1. the browns, even though they are completely out of it- would like nothing better than to beat the Steelers... more than any other team.

2. they will quit if down by more than 2 scores.

Start everyone-

Go Fast, Go Hard. Get up by 3 scores. Let the backups play the 2nd half.
