Steel doesn't bend
The Pittsburgh Steelers travel to Nashville to play the Tennessee Titans this Sunday. The Steelers have allowed just ONE 100-yard rusher in the last 35 regular season games (Ray Rice). In fact Tennessee RB Chris Johnson – who has 12 consecutive 100-yard rushing games - has been held to less than 100 yards on the ground in his two previous meetings with Pittsburgh (57 yards in 2009 and 69 yards in 2008).
NEXT-LEVEL: The speedy Johnson enjoys running when the Titans spread the field with their passing packages (three WR). In three wide receiver sets, Johnson is averaging 7.9 yards per rush since last season.
