Two aspiring playoff teams will square off on Thursday night to start Week 14 as the Pittsburgh Steelers head north to take on the Minnesota Vikings from U.S. Bank Stadium.

Steelers hold off Ravens in the last second

Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers edged out the AFC North leading Baltimore Ravens on Sunday afternoon to put and end to their three game winless streak. The Steelers defense came up with a stop on a last second Baltimore two point conversion attempt to seal a fourth quarter comeback win.

Roethlisberger threw for 236 yards and two touchdowns while Diontae Johnson pulled in eight receptions for 105 yards to push Pittsburgh to 6-5-1 on the year.

Vikes defense has been achilles heel

The Vikings have been disappointing in the two games that followed their shock win over the Green Bay Packers in Week 11. They went west and lost to the San Francisco 49ers before being beaten by the previously winless Detroit Lions in the final second of last week’s game.

Minnesota’s defense has been doing Kirk Cousins and the offense no favors in the last five games. The Vikings are 5-7 after winning just two of their last five and the defense is giving up 29.6 points a game in that span.

What's at stake

The Vikings trail the 8-4 Los Angeles Rams, and sit just a game behind San Francisco and the Washington Football Team in the NFC Wild Card race, as both teams are 6-6 going into Week 14. While the Steelers are a half game back of the Chargers, Bengals and Bills who sit at 7-5 in the AFC.
