Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger slams Thursday NFL games

GOOD JOB — Steelers’ kicker Chris Boswell is congratulated by Indianapolis kicker Adam Vinatieri after a Sunday’s game-winning field goal in Indianapolis.- Associated Press

You're running and practicing, and the soreness is starting to wane.

The Titans are 17-35-1 ATS vs. a team with a winning record, 17-41-4 in their last 62 games overall, 3-9 in their last 12 road games vs. a team with a winning home record, 11-37-4 in their last 52 games vs. AFC, 14-36-2 in their last 52 games following a win, and 0-3-1 in their last 4 November games.

Then he goes on to describe what Thursday is like when a team has just played a game on Sunday and they're scheduled on TNF. You'd never hear this kind of rant, on day one of preparation no less, from Tom Brady about having to play on Thursday. It's hard to execute sharp game plans when you're still exhausted.

During the Seahawks-Cardinals game, almost a dozen players went down with some sort of injury.

They are 7-0 over the past two seasons in games decided by four points or fewer and a seven-point start on the spread in Pennsylvania looks attractive with another close encounter very much on the cards.

Patriots fans have to feel good (and Steelers fans, quite bad) about Roethlisberger going out of his way to rant about Thursday night games on Monday. During an interview on Monday with 93.7 The Fan, a CBS Sports Radio station in Pittsburgh, Roethlisberger ripped the idea of Thursday games and called on the National Football League to just get rid of them. "Just play on Mondays and Sundays". It's so tough on guys. And you turn around in two days and play another physical football team is going to be tough. Both teams are going through it, so I'm not just speaking on ours.

"You've got to let your body recover a little bit", Roethlisberger said. Even a week, you're still not fully recovered Sunday to Sunday. You're still dealing with bumps and bruises and things continue to build up throughout the season... "Rather than install a bunch of new plays, you go with what you know and have been doing for a long time". It is already a highly risky sport, which has further the amount of backlash from players because of the lack of rest to better prepare to play in a game.
