We're still a couple weeks away until Monday Night Football officially returns. Week 3 of the pre-season will conclude on Sunday with the Tennessee Titans hosting the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Steelers have a much different look this year without their star receiver Antonio Brown, who will be playing for Oakland now. The Titans are a 2.5 point favorite, and the over/under is 40.5 points. Pittsburgh is +130 with the money line, and Tennessee is -150. There's some talk of a lightning storm brewing around game-time, so that could affect the under coming in depending on how severe it is, so I would keep a watch on the weather as kickoff time draws nearer. Pittsburgh coach Mike Tomlin has stated that QB Ben Roethlisberger will play Sunday along with the rest of the starters.

While Big Ben will likely start, he probably won't play much more than a quarter or 2, especially after we saw what happened to Carolina QB Cam Newton, who was seen leaving his pre-season game in a walking boot. There's a fine line between getting up to speed and in shape in time for the regular season, and risk getting injured during the pre-season. Pittsburgh has looked sharp this pre-season, but both their games were at home, so now we will get a chance to see how they fare on the road. Next week, week 4 of the pre-season, will have all the games being played on Thursday, giving all the teams a few extra days to get ready for their regular season opening game on Sunday or Monday, and giving the Bears-Packers at least one week to get ready for their Thursday night opener.
