The Pittsburgh Steelers and Tennessee Titans kick off Week 6 in the NFL on Thursday night.

The Pittsburgh Steelers and Tennessee Titans get the Week 6 slate of NFL games rolling on Thursday night at LP Field in Nashville.

The Steelers may have saved their season last weekend against the Philadelphia Eagles with a last-second 16-14 victory. Pittsburgh is now 2-2 and looking to make it two straight wins while Ben Roethlisberger needs just 300 passing yards to break Terry Bradshaw's all-time franchise record.

Tennessee is coming off a tough loss at the hands of the Minnesota Vikings, who beat them up in a 30-7 defeat. The Titans will have Matt Hasselbeck under center once again, while Jake Locker continues to recover from a shoulder injury.

In another key AFC North game, the Baltimore Ravens will travel to play the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.

Baltimore didn't look particularly good against the Kansas City Chiefs last weekend, but found a win to win, 9-6. Dallas had a bye week to lick its wounds from Week 4, when it was embarrassed on Monday Night Football by the Chicago Bears.

In the NFC, the San Francisco 49ers and New York Giants will put on a rematch of last year's NFC Championship game. The 49ers might just be the best team in football right now. They flexed their muscle in a big way the last two weeks, hammering the Buffalo Bills and New York Jets by a combined score of 79-3.
