Thursday night takes us to Pittsburgh where the New England Patriots and the Pittsburgh Steelers will meet to open up the 14th week of the NFL regular season. Both of these teams are having very different seasons as New England has been one of the worst teams in the league, and Pittsburgh is about average and has a legitimate opportunity to make the playoffs this season. Both teams are coming off of losses last Sunday and both of them will be looking to bounce back here and in this game on Thursday night in Pittsburgh as both of them look for a huge momentum boost heading into the last four weeks of the regular season.
New England is having a very rough season and they come into this game as one of the worst teams in the NFL this year. There has even been rumblings of making a change at the head coach position as they are rumored to be getting rid of Bill Belichick at the end of the regular season. New England comes into this game on a lengthy, losing streak, despite the fact that they have had one of the best defenses in the league over the last three weeks but it’s not changed their fortune much at all.
They have given up the least amount of points in the league of the last three weeks, but despite that they have yet to pick up a victory in that time span, and they are coming off of a game that they lost to Los Angeles without even scoring a single point. On the bright side, they may have lost that game, but they didn’t give up a single touchdown to the Los Angeles Chargers, either as they lost six to nothing thanks to two field goals. The Patriots will be looking to break their lengthy losing streak with a victory here on Thursday night in Pittsburgh as they look to at the very least delay and spoil the Pittsburgh Steelers playoff, heading into the final four weeks of the regular season.

Pittsburgh will be looking to bounce back after losing to the Arizona Cardinals and their previous game, and they will likely have to do so without Kenny Pickett on the field as it seems as if he will miss this game on Thursday night. A victory on Sunday, for Pittsburgh would’ve put them in a prime position to make a playoff appearance this season and defy the expectations that were set for them before the season started. Now it is even more of an uphill climb for the Pittsburgh Steelers throughout the last five weeks of the regular season and this is a game they cannot afford to lose here on Thursday night against a very awful New England Patriots team.
Pittsburgh has had to overcome a ton of injuries throughout the early part of the regular season and now they will need to overcome the absence of Kenny Pickett in this game on Thursday night. Pittsburgh comes into this game with seven victories through their first 12 games of the regular season and they will be looking for their eighth one of the year here on Thursday night at home against the New England Patriots. A win in this game for the Pittsburgh Steelers would keep them firmly in the playoff race heading into the final four weeks of the regular season. This is one of those games they cannot afford to lose against the New England team that comes into this game with double digit losses already this season, and Pittsburgh will need to make a statement with a victory here in this one on Thursday night at home.
Betting trends to consider in this matchup:
- New England is 2-7 after a loss this season
- New England is 1-4 on the road this season
- Pittsburgh is 4-3 at home this season
I expect the Pittsburgh Steelers to get back on track and pick up the victory in this game on Thursday night at home against the New England Patriots. As I look for Pittsburgh to pick up a comfortable victory in this game against a struggling New England team, despite not having Kenny Pickett in the lineup for this game on Thursday night. New England has been unable to score with the football and I think that’ll be their undoing in this game on Thursday as I look for them to struggle to get the ball into the endzone and for Pittsburgh to find a couple ways to score in this game and pick up a much-needed victory here in this one.As always, get our VIP Pick Free Tonight by Clicking Here!
