    Main Storylines to Watch

    Can the Steelers offense bounce back with a banged-up Kenny Pickett? Pickett was replaced in Week 8 by Mitch Trubisky due to a rib injury. Trubisky struggled in relief with two interceptions and a 51.2 QB Rating. Pickett came out earlier this week stating he expects to play. The Steelers need to score more than 10 points in this contest to come away victorious and stay alive in the AFC North divisional battle.

    Is Will Levis the real deal or just a flash in the pan? Levis threw for four passing touchdowns and no turnovers in the Titans Week 8 matchup against the Falcons. The Titans went into Week 8 expecting to use both Levis and Malik Willis, but Will Levis earned the solo start in Week 9. Levis had a good connection with DeAndre Hopkins who caught four balls for 128 yards and three receiving touchdowns. The Steelers have a solid defense, so this should be a good measuring stick game for Levis.
