The Minnesota Vikings will try to rebound on Thursday night when they host the Pittsburgh Steelers inside U.S. Bank Stadium.

After last week’s loss, the season may be a lost cause for the Minnesota Vikings.

The Vikings have spent all season trying to convince everyone that they’re a good team. They’ve blown leads. They’ve lost to Cooper Rush. They lost to the Detroit Lions, who hadn’t won a game in 364 days.
