Imagine not beating the Detroit Lions.

Tonight’s edition of Thursday Night Football kicks off with the Minnesota Vikings and Pittsburgh Steelers. Minnesota fell in dramatic fashion to the Lions last week, giving Detroit its first win of the season. The Vikings need to turn things around quickly if they want to stay in the playoff hunt. As for the Steelers, they battled Detroit to a lowly tie in Week 10, but they did manage to defeat the Ravens last week. In a competitive AFC North, Pittsburgh could really use a win tonight.
