Which player will step up for the Steelers against the Vikings?

Rhodes is dealing with a hip injury, but is only listed as questionable and should be ready for the marquis matchup. The Vikings had 95- and 89-yard touchdown drives against the Saints (Minnesota also had a 74-yard touchdown march).

Getting to Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is only half the battle.

This is clearly not an ideal situation for a Vikings team that was hoping Bradford finally was turning a corner. Pittsburgh WR Antonio Brown had 11 catches for 182 yards in Week 1. Even though the Steelers got off to an underwhelming start against the Browns, they have enough variables on defense and weapons on offense to win their home opener.

Time For Bell To Toll - Whether it was rust after sitting out the preseason due to contract issues or simply an enthusiastic performance by the Cleveland front, Le'Veon Bell didn't look like one of the league's top weapons in Week 1. "I had one, two maybe, on my knee".

The Vikings haven't won in Pittsburgh since a 44-24 victory on September 24, 1995, at Three Rivers Stadium.

Louis area has a history of unrest in similar cases, including after Brown's death, when protests, some of them violent, erupted. But the investigation continued and Mr Stockley was charged a year ago after prosecutors cited unspecified new evidence.

The game-within-the-game to watch will be when Pittsburgh has the ball will be All-Pro WR Antonio Brown against CB Xavier Rhodes, who made his first Pro Bowl last season when he intercepted five passes.

Minnesota does possess an elite defense, but the offense of the Steelers can be overwhelming.

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said Friday he expects Bradford to play, but Sloter's promotion means the Vikings have some concern about Bradford's status.

Bradford, with plenty of protection from his new-look offensive line, shredded the Saints with 27-of-32 passing for 346 yards and three touchdowns. (Calvin Johnson broke the record for yards in 2012 with 1,964.) Although unlikely, Brown can still put up a very prolific season.

"Those guys have the ability to play well and to be a really good offensive line, and they showed it the other night". 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. They did just that on Saturday when they announced that they had signed quarterback Kyle Sloter from the practice squad and added him to their active roster.
