Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger slams Thursday NFL games

Steelers open as 7 point favorites over Titans in Week 11

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (7) hands off to running back Le'Veon Bell (26) during the first half of an NFL football game against the Cincinnati Bengals in Pittsburgh, Sunday, Oct. 22, 2017.

"Yeah, it's miserable, it's bad, they need to get rid of this game I think", Roethlisberger said of Thursday play, via 93.7 The Fan in Pittsburgh.

The Titans will release one final injury report on Wednesday before flying to Pittsburgh later in the day. You're going to go out there and compete and give everything you have, because that's what you do.

That's why the quality of play has been so poor on Thursday nights this season. Their bodies just aren't ready to play...

On the other side, the Steelers are 4-0-1 ATS in their last 5 games following an ATS loss, 5-1 vs. a team with a winning record, 3-1-1 in their last 5 home games, Week 11 games, and Thursday night games, and 3-9 in their last 12 November games. At least seven players left the game with an injury, including two starting players for the Cardinals. It adds even more weight to the negotiations set to take place in advance of the National Football League and NFLPA's collective bargaining agreement expiring after the 2020 season.

"It's miserable", Roethlisberger told The Fan.

Sportsbook US players who bet on last season's action will recall that the Pittsburgh Steelers came within a game of competing for Super Bowl glory. "They just need to get rid of this game, I think".

Mike Tomlin alluded to this reality after Pittsburgh beat the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday, 20-17, saying players who limped out of that arena likely wouldn't be able to suit up against the Tennessee Titans on Thursday at Heinz Field. It's so tough on guys. Both teams are going through it, so I'm not just speaking on ours. Let's take a look at what kind of odds the Steelers are facing this Thursday as they host the Tennessee Titans. It's a tough thing to do.

It's remarkable that the league continues to turn a blind eye to these issues while the players basically beg for a reprieve from these games that are putting their health and careers at risk.
