Steeler Nation, kickoff time is getting closer and it is time to look at the keys of today’s ball game for when the Pittsburgh Steelers take on the Tennessee Titans in Heinz Field.
Offense: Create a tempo. Establish a run game that will open up the passing game. Isaac Redman, Felix Jones, and LaRod Stephens-Howling will be in charge of doing that. The Steelers must show they can improve from their 26th ranked rushing attack from a year ago.
Defense: Keep the play in front of the defense. Do not let guys like Kendall Wright and Kenny Britt get behind you in the coverage. Keep quarterback Jake Locker in check.
Special teams: Play smart. Stay in your lanes and be productive. The qualities of every good special teams unit.
