Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger bashes NFL's Thursday Night Football

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

It's not that he's wrong, it's that he's focused too much on the problems with the game instead of just accepting that he needs to deal with something that's really beyond his control as an individual player. We've seen blowouts, sloppy play and games that have been nearly unwatchable - and it's not the players' faults. However, Thursday Night Football generates $450 million per year, which is roughly $14 million per team.

Add Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger to the list that already included Seahawks receiver Doug Baldwin and Bills lineman Richie Incognito, players unafraid to describe what's happening in Thursday night football games that they believe shouldn't exist.

"They need to get rid of this game", Roethlisberger said, on 93.7 The Fan in Pittsburgh. Just play Mondays and Sundays.

Here's everything you need to know to watch the game, or follow along as we bring you the latest score, live updates, photos and video highlights in the comments section below.

During the Seahawks-Cardinals game, almost a dozen players went down with some sort of injury. It's so tough on guys, you're beat, you're banged up.

"Both teams are going through it, so I'm not just speaking on ours", Roethlisberger continued. The Steelers also won their last game 20-17 against the Colts to improve to 7-2 with Ben Roethlisberger going 19-31 for 236 yards, 2 touchdowns, and an interception.

"You've got to let your body recover a little bit", Roethlisberger said. This former divisional rival has enjoyed success at Heinz Field before and with limited time to prepare, a win for the Titans should not be discounted. Even a week you're still not full recovered Sunday to Sunday. Even a week, you're not still fully recovered Sunday to Sunday. "But we've got to do what the league says".

It's remarkable that the league continues to turn a blind eye to these issues while the players basically beg for a reprieve from these games that are putting their health and careers at risk. Following that game, Incognito said that Thursday games "suck" and it's "ridiculous" that the National Football League puts them on the schedule.
