If you’re thinking about not watching this Week 14 Thursday Night Football game between the New England Patriots and Pittsburgh Steelers, just remember that we only have five weeks of the regular season left, and then no football a little more than a month after that. So, enjoy the games while we still have them!

Kickoff is scheduled for 5:15 p.m. PT and the game will air on Amazon Prime. For my gambling folks, DraftKings Sportsbook is offering lines and prop bets for tonight’s game as the spread, total and moneylines are listed below.

  • Spread: PIT -6
  • O/U: 30
  • PIT ML: -258
  • NE ML: +210

For the injury report, the Patriots have ruled several players out; wide receivers Kayshon Boutte (shoulder) and Deamario Douglas (concussion), running back Rhamondre Stevenson (ankle) and cornerback Shaun Wade (illness). Defensive tackle Christian Barmore (shoulder), offensive tackle Trent Brown (ankle/hand), wide receiver DaVante Parker (knee) and wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster (ankle) are all questionable. It’s also worth noting that linebacker Matthew Judon and cornerback Christian Gonzalez are on injured reserve.

The Steelers are a little more healthy as they only have two players listed as out on the report; quarterback Kenny Pickett (ankle) and cornerback James Pierre (shoulder). Linebacker Elandon Roberts (groin), guard Isaac Seumalo (shoulder), center Mason Cole (neck) and running back Najee Harris (knee) are all questionable.

According to The Weather Channel, there will be a low of 38 degrees with five to ten MPH winds and a five percent chance of rain in Pittsburgh tonight.
