The NFL season rolls on with a stacked lineup of 14 games on the gridiron this week. The Indianapolis Colts, Miami Dolphins, New England Patriots, and Philadelphia Eagles are off this week due to byes.
Both of the NFL’s north divisions will be represented on Thursday Night Football to kick off Week 14. Ben Roethlisberger and the 6-5-1 Pittsburgh Steelers travel to U.S. Bank Stadium to take on Kirk Cousins and the 5-7 Minnesota Vikings. Both teams are fighting to keep their playoff hopes alive with the Steelers currently sitting at 8th in the AFC, while the Vikings are at 9th in the NFC. The top 7 teams from each conference will compete in the playoffs, a loss on Thursday will make the postseason a stretch for the loser. Anecdotally, the Steelers and Vikings are the only teams in the NFL that were not able to defeat or sweep the Lions so far this season, with Steelers tying in Week 10 and the Vikings going 1-1 with their NFC North Rivals.
The north in primetime continues on Sunday Night Football with an NFC North matchup between the 4-8 Bears and the 9-3 Packers on the Frozen Tundra of Lambeau Field. The Packers currently have the 2nd seed in the NFC and are a game behind the Arizona Cardinals from locking up the top spot and getting a first-round bye. The team from the Windy City enter the week with the 14th spot in the NFC and will need to go on a winning steak and get some help from the teams in front of them if they want to secure a postseason spot.
Two rivals in the NFC West will end the week on Monday Night Football. Kyler Murray and the 10-2 Cardinals welcome Matt Stafford and the 8-4 Rams to State Fram Stadium in Glendale. This is a pivotal matchup for both teams as the season gets closer to the end. The Rams have lost 3 of their last 5 but are coming off a 37-7 win against the Jaguars. Stafford is 9-70 against winning teams in his career and if ‘The New Show on Turf’ wants to overtake the division from the Birds, he’s got to play at an elite level.

Predicting the Winners
With only 4 weeks to go in the National Football League’s first 18-week season, things are heating up in the playoff race. On the bubble teams and lower seeded teams have to be extra focused heading into Week 14 because any kind of slip up could turn out to be detremintal. After this week, coaches on the hot seat may not make it to Week 15. There have been rumors of the Bears firing Matt Nagy before the season ends, which would be the first time the Bears have fired a coach midseason in their 101 year history, and the Panthers have already parted ways with former offensive coordinator Joe Brady.
Our predictions for the Week 14 winners are listed below.
