The Pittsburgh Steelers defeated the Minnesota Vikings 26-9

The Pittsburgh Steelers defeated the Minnesota Vikings 26-9

The Pittsburgh Steelers have begun their season with two victories over the Cleveland Browns and the Minnesota Vikings in large part due to the efforts of their defense.

There's nothing they can do about it.

Bradford, 29, was coming of a great performance in Week 1 against the New Orleans Saints.

"I feel like we are doing a really good job of getting pressure on the quarterback", said Ryan Shazier. "But especially on offense". None of the plays were the reason for the loss, but they certainly didn't help the Vikings' effort. Dalvin Cook set a club rookie record by running for 127 yards in his debut. After an nearly easy victory against the New Orleans Saints, and a career day for Sam Bradford, excitement has been running rampant for the Vikings. Zimmer called for an ill-fated fake punt on fourth-and-4 at the Minnesota 36 on the first possession of the second half. Last week, the Steelers had 13 penalties for 144 yards.

NFL Network reported Monday that Bradford has a bone bruise and will have an injection in the knee this week. Case in point was the one-act play of the dice game that Martavis Bryant's choreographed in the endzone after the Steelers' first score. He tested his knee during warmups Sunday morning at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh before being ruled out.

An upgraded scoreboard in the south end zone will greet the 68,000-plus expected to turn out. Forbath missed an extra point to keep the Steelers eight points ahead.

Not an easy task against a defense that kept Drew Brees in check until things were well in hand.

The announcement came just after Bradford was spotted on the field throwing a few passes before the game, though he headed back to the locker room after just a few minutes. His get off is looking good.

Bills' defense dominates the Jets
Led by quarterback Josh McCown , the Jets managed only 214 total yards and one touchdown in a 21-12 loss to the Buffalo Bills . Week 1 for the New York Jets starts things off with an AFC East clash on the road against the Buffalo Bills .

The second week of the NFL DFS season is naturally littered with "bounceback" candidates galore, as each team tries to re-establish itself after only sixty minutes of play were used to define it.

"He's smart and tough".

"I anticipate that when he's ready to practice and he's ready to play, he'll be able to play", head coach Mike Zimmer said Monday. It just wasn't enough on an afternoon the offense looked out of sync without Bradford.

The Steelers already have their franchise rusher, but they're working him back into game shape. This week, they had 10 penalties for 72 yards.

The Pittsburgh Steelers announced that rookie T.J.

The Vikings offense looks much more explosive this year and even with the addition of former Browns cornerback Joe Haden, the weakness on the Steelers defense lies in the secondary.

"We were just so confident", linebacker Eric Kendricks said. We were late out of the snap one time. He certainly carries some risk to him, but that is the type of risky play that can win you a tournament.
