NFL: Minnesota Vikings at Detroit Lions David Reginek-USA TODAY Sports

Week 14 of the 2021 NFL season will kick off with a Thursday Night Football matchup featuring the Pittsburgh Steelers (6-5-1) on the road against the Minnesota Vikings (5-7).

The Vikings lead the all-time series between these teams, 9-8, but the Steelers have won four of the past five meetings. They haven’t played each other since 2017, when Pittsburgh got a home win, 26-9, and the last time they faced off in Minnesota was back in 2013, although the Vikings did win that one 34-27.

Neither team has looked particularly dominant this season, and the Steelers are the reason the Lions have a tie in their 1-10-1 record, and the Vikings gave Detroit their first win of the season last Sunday.

The Eagles will be rooting for a Vikings loss in this game since that’ll help Philadelphia when it comes to the NFC playoff picture.

Here’s everything you need to know about tonight’s game.
