The Tennessee Titans have lost all but one of their games by 20 or more points, but hope to turn things around with Matt Hasselbeck still at the helm as they take on the Pittsburgh Steelers Thursday night.

The 1-4 Tennessee Titans will go with Matt Hasselbeck against the 2-2 Pittsburgh Steelers' defense as Jake Locker will miss his second consecutive start when the teams square off Thursday night in Nashville.

Hasselbeck had an awful game in his first meaningful outing of the season when he was forced into duty two weeks ago, tossing a pair of pick-sixes, and although his 26-for-43, 200-yard outing with one score and one pick Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings was less egregious, his team was walloped, 30-7. It's a down year for the Steelers defense, a unit which has allowed 30 points twice, as they've been dealing with injuries. Troy Polamalu will be out after aggravating a calf injury that forced him to miss a pair of games before the Steelers' Week 4 bye week.

It's been an up and down year for the Steelers: they lost to a sub-par Oakland team on a last-second field goal, then regrouped to take down a surprisingly good Philadelphia squad, also on a last second field goal the next time they took the field. For the Titans, their only bright spot on the year was a 44-41 shootout win over the Detroit Lions: they've lost all their other games by at least 20 points.
