In the game on Sunday, the Pittsburgh Steelers and Also Tennessee Titans Match at Nissan Stadium in Nashville.
The Steelers head into Week 3 of the preseason with a restart of 2-0. They have wins over the Buccaneers and Chiefs. Amid a quarterback conflict, the unit was the very remarkable for the Steelers last week. They held that a great Kansas City crime in check for only seven points at a 17-7. Sure, Patrick Mahomes barely playedbut it is not like Chad Henne is completely horrible. He is a veteran who knows his way around an NFL crime.
Offensively, I am going to have to admit it wasn’t a excellent day for anybody. Josh Dobbs threw an interception in the red zone that seemed like a rookie mistake. That is a big mark against him in his struggle against Mason Rudolph. Dobbs got third-team repetitions week behind Rudolph. Rudolph did not do anything but the ball was protected by him and passed for 77 yards on passing.
Rudolph has more upside down than Dobbs. I think that can be Rudolph’s job to lose, although this is still a quarterback competition. Underneath Rudolph and Dobbs, Devlin Hodges has looked impressive. He’s making it difficult about the Steelers to cut him. At the very least, Hodges can find his way on the practice group.
The Steelers proceeded with Rudolph against the Chiefs because their starting QB in Week 2. Ben Roethlisberger is expected to get the start in such a one. It’ll be his first game action after sitting out 2 and Week 1 of the preseason. Dobbs is likely to get a look since Rudolph got first-team reps last week. Dobbs is going to have to impress this chance. The task and another mistake can be Rudolph’s.
There are not any doubts about the quarterback rotation in Tennessee. It’s one of the clearer decisions to be made from the NFL. Whereas Ryan Tannheill follows at the backup position marcus Mariota is your starting QB. Logan Woodside, former Toledo Rocket and AAF alumni, is back and is hoping to catch on a roster or practice squad. Mariota will start Week 1 barring an accident. Knock on wood.

Mariota is simply getting the nod above Tannehill So far as Week 1 is concerned. How Tannehill and Mariota perform now is irrelevant. However, it’s certainly worth mentioning that Tannehill will be breathing the neck of Mariota when he struggles. Did the Titans but it is a means to push on Mariota. He did not function the Titans wished season.
Mariota wasn’t terrible, where he actually must lift everyone up around 24, but he is at a point in his career. Than they truly are, make them much better players. Mariota handed with 357 yards running for 8 interceptions and 11 touchdowns. He must be by now, so there are not going to be any explanations in 2019.
With respects to this preseason match, the Titans are going to have two starting quarterbacks playing for nearly 3 quarters of playwith. Tannehill is not the ideal signal caller you’ll discover in the group, but he’s got lots of expertise as a starting QB at Miami.
He has acted than a backup option as a rookie for more of his career. When he gets the phone in this contest, tannehill should be in a position to move the ball from backups. Then isn’t going to make his occupation being nervous regarded by Mariota if he does not. Tannehill is likely going to take within this one from the second-half or near the first-half’s close. By then, the Steelers aren’t going to be needing their prime defenders on the market.
On the Steelers’ side, they will get Roethlisberger out there for near a half, and a quarterback battle between Rudolph and Dobbs. There’s a fantastic chance that at least two of them are going to be able to place some forces.
Combined with Mariota and Tannehill, that’s four competent quarterbacks playing tonight. And if Hodges gets mop-up duty for the Steelers, he has been playing in the preseason. With a posted total of 40, there seems to be some solid worth over the OVER in this preseason edition of Sunday Night Football at Nashville.
