The Tennessee Titans play the Pittsburgh Steelers at the giant ketchup bottle this week. This game is massive because the Titans are looking to claim the #1 overall seed in the AFC and the Steelers are looking to keep their playoff hopes (and even AFC North Division title hopes) alive. The Steelers playoffs chances are like Big Ben. They just won’t give up. And they’re also fat.
For this dumb sports blog, the Steelers and Titans are two of our most beloved teams. A.D. is a big ‘Lers fan and I, the Titans. Who could’ve guessed, right? Not like we talk about Derrick Henry that much.
If you’ve followed us for a while, you’ve seen us chronicle these teams through the ups and the downs – losing to the Jets and tying the Lions. If you’ve been with us for a long time, then you probably remember the darkest day in this blog’s history: January 10th.
Needless to say Super Wild Card Weekend was not very super at all for this blog.
And now here we are with our two teams squaring off, meaning one of us will be super depressed coe Sunday night. The ‘lers have won the last three meetings including last year’s near-come-from-behind heartbreaker that should’ve gone to overtime if future Hall of Famer Stephen Gostkowski wasn’t a dodo bird. And anytime you play at The House That Bane Destroyed, you know it’s going to be tough making it out alive. Am I nervous? Of course. Mainly because the Steelers aren’t the regular Steelers this year (read: they kinda suck), and the Titans suck against teams that suck. And speaking of suck, A.D. sucks! (but just this week)
Also, with The Cineboiz all being Chiefs fans, they’ve hopped on the Steelers bandwagon this week. Meaning I’m outnumbered and they suck this week too.
P.S. A.D. is going to be at Heinz Field for the game. If you’re a cool kid and going to the game, DM us and let us know so A.D. can meet up with you. ESPECIALLY if you’re wearing a Santa hat to the game, because A.D. is counting them again this week with the over/under set at 69. Where are you taking?
