Jones defends Thursday Night Football, says it's not too demanding on players

Ben Roethlisberger: NFL needs to 'get rid of' Thursday night games

Back in 2016, outspoken Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman wrote a column for the Players Tribune entitled "Why I Hate Thursday Night Football". But your body still isn't ready to go through the trauma of playing another football game.

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.

Game day. This is what you live for.

The Pittsburgh Steelers held their first official practice of Week 11 on Tuesday and the team's second injury report of the week that was released after the session ended includes the same eight players that were listed on the speculated Monday report plus one more. 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. Their O/U trends are 0-4 in their last 4 Thursday night games, 1-7 in their last 8 games on the grass, 1-5 in their last 6 games vs. a team with a winning record, 1-4 in their last 5 November games and in their last 5 games following an ATS loss, 20-41-1 in their last 62 games vs. AFC, 15-35-1 in their last 51 games overall, and 16-37-1 in their last 54 games following a win. At least seven players left the game with an injury, including two starting players for the Cardinals. I know the players voted on it, even though we were the only team to unanimously vote against the CBA. 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.

Seferovic should have settled it in the 85th minute but instead shot high and wide - and was substituted nearly immediately.

"Both teams are going through it, so I'm not just speaking on ours", Roethlisberger said.

The Steelers play the Titans at Heinz Field this Thursday. "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. It's a tough thing to do, but you know, you've got to do what the league says". It is already a highly risky sport, which has further the amount of backlash from players because of the lack of rest to better prepare to play in a game.

"I'm sure the Titans would say the same thing", he said.
