Thursday Night Football returns to the AFC this week with a matchup between two divisional leaders. The Pittsburgh Steelers at 7-2 are looking to maintain the #1 seed in the conference in order to secure home-field advantage throughout the playoffs. The Tennessee Titans need to keep winning in hopes of fending off the surging Jacksonville Jaguars for the divisional crown.

This should be an uncharacteristically competitive Thursday night game, as both offenses are capable of being productive either through the air (Pittsburgh) or on the ground (Tennessee), and both defenses can boast of talented players throughout all three levels. Both teams also sport talented rookie receivers. The Steelers’ JuJu Smith-Schuster already has 29 receptions for 521 yards and five touchdowns, while the Titans’ 2017 first-rounder Corey Davis has returned from injury and is just starting to establish a connection with quarterback Marcus Mariota, who has also been nicked up.

So, if you’re interested in watching tonight’s game, here’s how you can do so. Go Steelers!:
