Now looking ahead to his own Thursday night game, Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger wants the National Football League to get rid of these mid-week contests.

Then throw in a short week, when players are getting just three days to not only rest their battered bodies but also prepare their minds for a new game plan, and it's very tough.

The Steelers host the Tennessee Titans on Thursday night this week. "You're beat up, you're banged up".

"Both teams are going through it, so I'm not just speaking on ours", Roethlisberger continued. Even a week you're still not full recovered Sunday to Sunday. "Even a week, you're still not fully recovered by Sunday to Sunday, you're still dealing with bumps and bruises and things just continue to build up throughout the season".

"Thursday Night Football" has been controversial since its inception in 2006, but it doesn't appear to be going away any time soon. Their O/U trends are 5-1 in their last 6 games following a win, 6-2 in their last 8 games overall, 13-5-1 in their last 19 games following an ATS loss, 5-2 in their last 7 games on the grass and vs. AFC, and 4-1 in their last 5 road games vs. a team with a winning home record. The Steelers, led offensively by quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, Antonio Brown, and Le'Veon Bell, donned a personality of one of the most explosive offenses in the league and backed by a more than capable defense emerged as legitimate title contenders.

We should have much more of an idea of the pecking order in the AFC by the time that marquee match-up comes around but the Titans roll into town first also looking to establish themselves as a serious play-off contender. You'd never hear this kind of rant, on day one of preparation no less, from Tom Brady about having to play on Thursday.
