We are on to Week 14 of the NFL season, closing in on the end of the regular season with teams starting to fight for their playoff seeding, or settling into a 2024 draft position. The week begins with tonight’s Thursday Night Football broadcast of the New England Patriots at Pittsburgh Steelers game.

The Patriots have struggled this year, with inconsistent quarterback play a major factor. They are 2-10 for the season and are in position to claim the second-overall pick in April’s college prospect selection process. They now enter the possibility of playing spoilers to teams still looking to make the postseason.

That includes the Steelers, who are 7-5 on the season and in the top wild card position in the AFC playoff picture. Pittsburgh is two games out of the lead in the AFC North, chasing the Baltimore Ravens, but they could also find themselves on the wrong side of the postseason bubble. All three wild card teams, Pittsburgh, the Cleveland Browns, and the Indianapolis Colts, as well as the first team outside the playoffs, the Houston Texans, are all 7-5 on the season and separated by tiebreaks.

As we do every week here on The Phinsider, our contributors are back with their picks for tonight’s game.
