Steelers Player to Watch: Antonio Brown
Antonio Brown performed at stud status last week. The Steelers offense moved the ball down the field last week and Brown was a big reason. Brown caught 9 passes for 196 yards and a pair of touchdowns.
Vikings Player to Watch: Adrian Peterson
Peterson ran for 78 yards and a score on his very first carry of the year, but he has not done much since that time. he has averaged 2.9 yards per rush since that 78 yard run. Last week he ran for 88 yards and a score. He has not been able to make the impact like he did last season.
Matchup to Watch: Matt Cassel vs Steelers Defense
Matt Cassel is getting his first start of the season for the injured Christian Ponder and he needs to be able to stretch the field. Teams are stacking the box against the Vikings and forcing the quarterback to beat them. Ponder has not been able to take advantage. Cassel will need to open up the field for Peterson to get some running room.
Someone has to win. There is no home field advantage for any of the teams in this game. Let’s see if Matt Cassel can make a few plays in the passing game. I think he will be able to open it up a little bit.
Vikings 18, Steelers 17
