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.

You get to take the pads off, and practice is a little bit lighter. It's a lot to ask on the body to only have three days in between football games.

Just like the Steelers, they have made winning games look hard but head coach Mike Mullarkey has described his players as "resilient" and a touchdown from DeMarco Murray - his third of the game - just about sealed the deal against the Bengals. If the NFL Network is part of your cable package, you can also live stream the game through the NFL app on XBox, Apple TV, or Roku device on your TV. You'd never hear this kind of rant, on day one of preparation no less, from Tom Brady about having to play on Thursday. Harrison missed the Steelers Week 10 game with a back issue while Mitchell left the Sunday game against the Indianapolis Colts with an ankle injury.

"They need to get rid of this game", Roethlisberger said, on 93.7 The Fan in Pittsburgh. Just play Mondays and Sundays. It's so tough on guys, you're beat up, you're banged up. And you turn around in two days and play another physical football team is going to be tough. Both teams are going through it, so I'm not just speaking on ours.

The Steelers play the Titans at Heinz Field this Thursday. You're still dealing with bumps and bruises and things continue to build up throughout the season... "But we've got to do what the league says".

Quarterback Marcus Mariota and productive tight end Delanie Walker have both shown their toughness lately playing through injuries so while progress has been far from smooth, this is a team starting to develop a winning habit in what looks like being a fascinating divisional battle down the stretch with Jacksonville. "I'm sure the Titans would say the same thing and everyone who's played on Thursday night would say the same thing".
