Titans vs. Jaguars live stream: Watch "Thursday Night Football" game online

Week 14 of the NFL season kicks off with a "Thursday Night Football" matchup between the Jacksonville Jaguars and Tennessee Titans.

The Jaguars likely won't make the playoffs with a 4-8 record, but the Titans at 6-6 remain in the mix for the AFC South title and a wild-card berth. 

The Titans also could be a potential first-round opponent for the Patriots if New England does not earn a top two seed and is forced to play during Wild Card Weekend. The Patriots suffered their worst loss of the season to the Titans in a 34-10 Week 10 defeat. 

Thursday's tilt also is another opportunity for Boston fans to watch two former Patriots in action for the Titans -- running back Dion Lewis and cornerback Malcolm Butler. Lewis has two total touchdowns this season after tallying nine for the Pats in 2017. Butler also is having a disappointing season, although he did play well in a Week 13 win over the New York Jets.

Playing the Patriots seems to have taken a lot out of these teams, too. The Jaguars are 2-8 since an early season win over the Pats, while the Titans are 1-2 since their victory against Tom Brady and Co.

Ben Roethlisberger injury: Steelers QB expected to play vs. Patriots

Ben Roethlisberger injury: Steelers QB expected to play vs. Patriots

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger suffered a rib injury in Sunday's 24-21 loss to the Oakland Raiders, but he is expected to play in Week 15 when his team hosts the rival New England Patriots at Heinz Field.

Here's the latest on Roethlisberger's injury:

Roethlisberger has struggled against the Patriots throughout his career. He's 2-8 versus Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, including losses in the AFC Championship Game in 2004 and 2016. 

Big Ben nearly pulled of a game-winning drive late in the fourth quarter when these teams met at Heinz Field last season, but he threw an interception in the end zone that sealed a New England victory. 

The Steelers have lost three consecutive games and would actually fall out of a playoff spot if they lose to the Patriots and the Baltimore Ravens beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
