Vikings' Sam Bradford a game-time decision vs. Steelers

Vikings' Sam Bradford a game-time decision vs. Steelers

During their stretch of seven wins in eight games, they also won at Atlanta in November 2015, and their only loss was by three points to a strong Arizona team in December 2015. If he can move even less this week, then the coaching staff might try to keep him off the field just so they stand a better chance at winning an important game. First, they are playing on the road against a much better team.

Defensive coordinator Keith Butler noticed a few communication flaws but generally was impressed with how the secondary responded in a 21-18 win at FirstEnergy Stadium. An earlier report from the AP adds the Vikings are "basically on a play or don't play basis", so the plan would be for him to play the whole way if active. The Steelers defense held all of the Cleveland Browns' receivers to under 55 yards receiving. The 2010 first-overall pick completed 84 percent of his passes for 346 yards, three touchdowns and no turnovers.

"It's definitely preached in our protection meetings", Easton said.

Seahawks versus Packers week one
Wilson struggled with timing on quick passing plays in the past, but it's something he worked on in camp to improve this year. That was all the offense the Packers needed. "I feel like I can remember any of the good rushes that I had", Fackrell said.

In addition to the defensive line , Redskins outside linebacker Ryan Kerrigan can be a difference maker. "I don't know what it is. They averaged 7.4 points in the second quarter (11th), 5.9 in the third quarter (8th) and just 6.1 in the fourth (21st).

Bradford was protected against New Orleans by an offensive line that includes five players starting at new positions (tackles Riley Reiff and Mike Remmers were signed as unrestricted free agents and center Pat Elflein was drafted on the third round as a part of Minnesota's O-Line purge). The Vikings have to play the protection game, use Cook to his full potential, and harden the defense if they are going to start 2-0. Though, it may be a little premature to expect him to turn it around so soon, especially against the Minnesota Vikings this weekend. Bradford had ACL surgery on the same knee in 2013 and 2014. Second to Haden in passing yards allowed was Eagles' sophomore cornerback, Jalen Mills, who surrendered one yard less. You'll also see some occasional blitzes up the middle. If he can't go and the Vikings start Keenum, this would be a hit to Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs. If the same can be done against Bell and the Steelers, the Vikings have the corners to slow Brown. But Brown has proven time after time that he can get open against just anyone with four straight 100-catch seasons.

Butler said the secondary can help out Sunday by providing tight coverage. However, what we do know does seem at least somewhat concerning in the short term.

Safety J.J. Wilcox is questionable after going through the league's concussion protocol.
