Steelers Look to get Bell Running
The Pittsburgh Steelers did not get a great game out of their stud running back Le’Veon Bell in Week 1. Bell finished the game with just 32 yards on 10 carries. The good news for the Steelers was their stud receiver Antonio Brown was just as good as last season. He finished the game with 182 yards.
Jesse James was the stud in the end zone for the Steelers. The tight end caught two touchdowns in the win. The Steelers passes for 255 yards and rushed for just 35 in the game. Pittsburgh will go on the road in their next two games at the Chicago Bears and at the Baltimore Ravens.
Bradford Looking to Continue
The Minnesota Vikings saw one of the best performances of his career from Sam Bradford. The quarterback was outstanding finished with a QBR of 95.2 in the game. Bradford threw 3 touchdowns, with Stefon Diggs catching 2 of the touchdowns. The Vikings had the second most passing yards in Week 1.
Dalvin Cook, the rookie running back out of Florida State was impressive in his opener as well. Cook finished with 127 yards on 22 carries. The Minnesota Vikings will play their Week 3 game at home against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and then welcome the Detroit Lions in Week 4.
Steelers Blast Vikings
The Pittsburgh Steelers are going to win this game. Ben Roethlisberger is much better at home than he is on the road. The quarterback is going to find Brown, and start using Bell a little bit more than he did in Week 1. Look for Pittsburgh to come away with a win in this game, as long as they take care of the football.
The Minnesota Vikings are going to be able to compete with the Green Bay Packers at the top of the NFC North with their play like Week 1. Sam Bradford is a monster key to this team. Look for the Steelers to bottle him up. The Steelers beat the Vikings in this game. Pittsburgh -5.5 is the bet to make here.
