Dry and chilly conditions are forecast as the Pittsburgh Steelers host the Tennessee Titans this Thursday evening at Heinz Field.

After a 24-20 win against Cincinnati on Sunday, Tennessee now has its longest winning streak, five games, since 2009. The Titans are now tied with Jacksonville for the AFC South division lead.

Tensions for the game are further increased by the Steelers–Titans rivalry that dates back to the 1970s when the Steelers and then-Houston Oilers played in the AFC Central. The two teams were placed in separate divisions during the 2002 NFL season; however, matchups between the teams remain heated.
