We know you've been asking, so here's the latest we have on the Titans/Steelers game this week directly from the NFL:

  • If the game is moved to another week, the game counts for THAT week's stats, which still does have a chance of happening.

Congrats to Geller for having three top teams overall in the top-25 after three weeks as well.
