Does it get any better than this?  Gambling911.com says "probably not".

These are two of the best teams in the NFL right now along with the New York Giants and Carolina Panthers.  In the AFC, there really are no comparisons, however.

Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Tennessee Titans betting odds opened at Titans -1.  Since that time, the line has moved in favor of the Steelers to -2 though some online sportsbooks had Pittsburgh as the -1 and -1 ½ road favorite.

From Scouts Inc.: This game features two of the best teams in the AFC with home-field advantage for the playoffs on the line. Tennessee is reeling after losing to Houston and witnessing a scary left knee injury to its best defensive player, DT Albert Haynesworth. Pittsburgh won a street fight in Baltimore to post the AFC's second-best record, clinch a first-round bye and win the AFC North. The Steelers have the No. 1 defense in football and will head to Tennessee intent on stopping QB Kerry Collins, RB Chris Johnson and the Titans' No. 19-ranked offense. Tennessee defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz has had several issues along the defensive line this season and now must adjust quickly to life without Haynesworth for the next couple of weeks.

Here's the low down on this game: Since 1999, Tennessee has dominated Pittsburgh 7-3.  They've won three of the last four though the Steelers won their last meeting in 1995 by a score of 34-7.  Pittsburgh was a -7 home favorite at that time.

The Steelers are 5-17 ATS in their last 22 games as a favorite of 0.5-3.0.  The Titans, meanwhile, are 11-1 ATS in their last 12 games after scoring less than 15 points in their previous game, 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games after allowing less than 15 points in their previous game and 13-4 ATS in their last 17 games as an underdog.  They are also 6-0 ATS in their last 6 games following a ATS loss.

Last week

a controversial touchdown pass from Ben Roethlisberger to Santonio Holmes in the game's final minutes lifted the Steelers to a 13-9 win over the host Ravens. ... The Titans failed to score a touchdown, falling 13-12 to the host Texans for just their second loss of the season.
