Vikings QB Sam Bradford 'Will Be Gametime Decision'

Vikings QB Sam Bradford 'Will Be Gametime Decision'

ESPN insider Chris Mortensen says Bradford had an MRI on his balky knee earlier this week after experiencing swelling and pain in the wake of Monday night's win over the Saints. Few could have known then that it would be 22 months before Bryant would again appear in a meaningful game on the North Shore.

Several members of the Pittsburgh Steelers underperformed during Pittsburgh's first game.

HE SAID IT: "The Vikings don't always get there, but they hit the quarterback more than any team in pro football". But the Vikings' defensive line, which includes backup end Brian Robinson and backup tackle Shamar Stephen, is the strength of the Minnesota defense.

The Vikings had until 4 p.m. ET Saturday to make additions to the active roster. Dalvin Cook set a club rookie record by running for 127 yards in his debut.

This week's Minnesota Vikings at Pittsburgh Steelers game is a much-anticipated matchup between two of the best teams in the NFL.

Last week against the Browns, Steelers' defenders gave up six receptions for 62 yards.

Before a 15-yard carry that iced the game, Bell was a non-factor for the Steelers in the opener. The very idea shakes Vikings fans, who flashback to his 2013-14 injury that benched him for a season. I expect Big Ben to take more vertical shots downfield to keep the Vikings defense on their toes and potential open up the running game.

The Vikings are going to shock a lot of people in this game. Vikings 23, Steelers 20. Sloter threw for 413 yards and three touchdowns for Denver in the preseason. Minnesota is one of those teams. Minnesota was an average run defense at best last season while boasting one of the league's best pass defenses. Now, the blame isn't exclusively on the offensive line, Bell played a limited role and didn't make superior plays when his name was called.

Sloter played just one season under center for Northern Colorado, throwing for 2,656 yards, 29 touchdowns and 10 interceptions while completing 62.1 percent of his passes and registering a passer rating of 155.7.
