Talk about two NFL teams moving in opposite directions following Week 13.

Pittsburgh beat division rival Baltimore in thrilling fashion when the Ravens failed to convert a potentially game-winning 2-point conversion after scoring a late touchdown to pull within one point of the Steelers.

On the other hand, Minnesota lost to Detroit as a 7-point favorite, resulting in the Lions’ first win of the season.

Needless to say, the perceptions of these teams couldn’t be more different heading into tonight’s Thursday Night Football matchup.

With that said, the smartest way to bet Steelers vs. Vikings has to be a contrarian play on Minnesota, right?
