Thursday Night Football Preview: Week 14 Remember when Thursday was 'Must See TV'? That no longer applies. After being blessed with a terrific game last week that featured no punts, football fans will be hard-pressed to be excited about the Thursday Night Football Preview: Week 14. After watching a game with no punts, Week 14 features two of the five lowest-scoring teams in football. New England is coming off a 6-0 shutout. The Patriots have scored one touchdown total in their last three games. Additionally, being shutout by the Chargers' 28th-ranked defense does not bode well for a trip to Pittsburgh to face a Steelers defense that has surrendered the sixth-fewest points. Meanwhile, only four other teams have mustered fewer points on offense than Pittsburgh. Additionally, the Steelers are now trotting out their No. 2 quarterback on short rest. The Steelers opened as slight favorites and a futile total of 35 points plummeted down to a meager 30. Hardly a must-see event- this AFC duel is strictly for diehards and fantasy fanatics. Matchup 
TEAM OFFENSE PASS RUSH YDS/PLAY POINTS
New England Patriots 28 23 21 28 32
Pittsburgh Steelers 26 28 14 25 28
  These two teams put the offense in 'offensive'. New England has struggled in all facets of assembling a credible offense. They have scored the fewest points in football. Also, New England has a pathetic 10-to-14 TD-to-INT ratio. Finally, they rank 31st in average starting position, percentage of drives resulting in points, and dead-last in field goal percentage. Things have been marginally better in Pittsburgh, especially since dismissing Matt Canada. The Steelers are a respectable 14th with 1,384 rushing yards and lead the NFL with only 10 turnovers. Mike Tomlin has done another fantastic job guiding a very marginal offensive unit to a 7-5 record. Finally, acclimate yourself with Pressley Harvin III and Bryce Baringer, the team's punters. New England Offense  Despite getting shutout last week, Bill Belichick will... How will Thursday's Patriots vs. Steelers game go?
