Coming off a win last Sunday against the Buffalo Bills, the Pittsburgh Steelers will look to make it two in a row and hang onto their slim and fading playoff hopes by hosting the NFC North leading Detroit Lions.
After defeating the Chicago Bears last week, the Lions are in sole possession of first place this late in the season for the first time in 14 years and have a parade of mostly losing teams left on their schedule.
The good news for Steelers fans is that Detroit is winless in their last nine visits to Pittsburgh.
Can the Steelers come away with their third consecutive home victory and make the rest of this season interesting?
Let’s take a look.
