Next game: vs. Cardinals

How will the final two games of the Ben Roethlisberger era be remembered? The Steelers aren’t completely out of the playoffs, but it’s looking more and more likely that Week 17’s Monday night game against the visiting Cleveland Browns and the Week 18 finale at the Baltimore Ravens will be the last times Roethlisberger suits up in a Steelers uniform. The Vikings are now behind the Saints and Philadelphia in the race for the NFC’s seventh seed and have to face a red-hot Green Bay team and Aaron Rodgers, who has thrown 16 touchdowns and no interceptions in his past five games, on the road in Week 17.

Next game: at Packers

What to know: Zach Wilson was outplayed by Trevor Lawrence in the battle of the top two draft picks, but Wilson pulled out the victory because of his athleticism and resourcefulness.

What to know: The Chargers have a Pro Bowl, superstar quarterback in Justin Herbert, but they weren’t able to overcome the losses of top running back Austin Ekeler, top receiver Mike Williams and Pro Bowl defensive end Joey Bosa, all of whom missed Sunday’s game because they are on the reserve/COVID-19 list.
