Tonight's game

NFL Week 7

October 29, 2001

Tennessee (2-3) at Pittsburgh (4-1)

Time: 9 p.m., chs. 2, 7.

Line: Steelers by 3.

Outlook: Titans QB Steve McNair is 6-1 against the Steelers. This time, however, he will be facing a better Pittsburgh defense. The Steelers have limited Eddie George to 3.2 yards a carry, his lowest average among any AFC opponent. Steelers QB Kordell Stewart's stiffest challenge will be eluding a Tennessee pass rush that has just begun to apply pressure. Watch for Stewart to test Titans CB Andre Dyson, who got his first start last week against Detroit.

The pick: Pittsburgh. Jerome Bettis will be the difference for the Steelers.
