PITTSBURGH (-6) over Tennessee

I have an extended NFL picks post coming (on Sunday morning, I think), but I wanted to get this pick on the record before tonight's game.  Pittsburgh is at home, they're going to be getting their Super Bowl rings (I'm assuming), and these Thursday night openers are always blowouts.*

*Since the defending champs started hosting the season opener in 2004, the home teams are 5-0 with an average margin of victory of 12.8 points, with the only close game being the inaugural New England-Indianapolis 27-24 classic.

The odds are Kerry Collins is going to remember that he's Kerry Collins, and that the Titans defense is going to miss Albert Haynseworth.  Also, don't you think the Steelers are going to be looking for a little revenge for this?
