The Detroit Lions travel to Heinz Field to take on the Pittsburgh Steelers in an important road test for the Lions.

The Steelers (3-6) are trying to claw back into the wild card race by getting another road win.  The Lions (6-3) will try to keep their lead in the NFC North after beating the Chicago Bears last week.

The Lions got the national spotlight after physically dominating the Bears last week.  So physical in fact that it led to fines for defensive linemen Nick Fairley and Willie Young.

The latest fines and wins have the Steelers talking about not being bullied by the Lions on their home field.

The Lions have yet to win at Heinz field so the Steelers, who also have a reputation for physically dominating defense, will be doing their best to match the intensity.

This game is shaping up to be an old school defensive contest where points will be at a premium.
