ST LOUIS (LALATE) – The Steelers vs Titans 2012 game tonight (live score below) won’t feature Troy Polamalu, Pittsburgh officials confirm to news. But what channel is the Steelers vs Titans 2012 game on tonight, this Thursday October 11, 2012? The Steelers are coming off a big win to split their four game start. But the Titans this evening will seek to end their recent losing streak.
NFL remote control confusion is back this evening as fans wonder what channel the Steelers vs Titans 2012 game is on. The broadcast, start time 8:20 PM EST, is air live from Nashville on the NFL Network. In other words, if you don’t have cable, you won’t be able to catch the broadcast.
The NFL has previously confirmed to news that Thursday night games each week will air exclusively on the NFL Network. That has resulted in fan disappointment weekly from viewers expecting to catch football games on network TV. Officials also tell news that you can catch the broadcast on DirecTV (212) or Dish (154).
News analysts contend that the Steelers’ defense against Matt Hasselbeck tonight is key. Hasselbeck has not performed well this season when under pressure from the defense. He has three touchdown passes but three interceptions. His completion rate is good, however, standing at sixty-two percent. That has resulted in more than four hundred yards this season.
Jake Locker, in turn, has delivered better numbers this season. As news analysts note, his completion rate is impressive. At sixty-three percent, he has delivered nearly eight hundred yards, four touchdowns and two interceptions.
Roethlisberger, however, has had unmatched numbers this season. Roethlisberger, who married Ashley Harlan last year, has delivered nine touchdowns this season, more than one thousand yards and just a single interception. That has resulted in one of the highest completion rates in the league this year at sixty-six percent.
“We just need to respect the fact that we have yet to (win on the road) this year and we have an opportunity on Thursday night,” Mike Tomlin told news this week.

News analysts assert that the Steelers last win, to put them at 2-2 for tonight, was critical. Ben, however, tells news that his team is far better than critics argue. “I always have confidence in myself and the guys that we can do it.”
So why have the Titans struggled this season? The key is their line. The Titans have given up thirty-six points when under pressure, per game on average. That is compared to twenty-two of the Steelers.
And while both teams have good numbers on receiving, the Titans have no rushing touchdown stats this season on rushing. Chris Johnson has delivered more than two hundred yards on seventy-three carries this season. But he has yet to deliver a rushing touchdown. And the team’s second leader rusher, Locker, has only sixty-seven yards.
Tomlin, however, tells news that Troy Polamalu will be out today after Sunday’s injury. LaMarr Woodley could possibly play, Tomlin reported yesterday. For live score updates tonight, click HERE.
