Watch as the Pittsburgh Steelers take on the Minnesota Vikings in their home opener in Week 2.
After a Week 1 victory over the Cleveland Browns, the Pittsburgh Steelers are looking to keep their season undefeated with a home opener win over the Vikings. While Minnesota presents a much harder challenge than Cleveland, the Steelers remain confident they’ll head to Week 2 perfect.
For Pittsburgh, their defense is looking to prove how improved they are. Sam Bradford and the Vikings offense was one of the best in Week 1, meaning the Steelers are going to need to be on top of their game to slow them down.
With Stephon Tuitt, Pittsburgh’s pass rush will be short, but should still have enough firepower to pressure Bradford throughout the game. Maybe they aren’t looking at another seven sack performance, but could still get through Minnesota’s line multiple times in Week 2.
On the offensive end, Pittsburgh is looking to add more of a run game to their arsenal. Le’Veon Bell’s 32 rushing yards against Cleveland was not what he or the Steelers were hoping for in his season debut. While he may have been shacking off some rust from missing the preseason, he’ll need to have more of an impact if the Steelers look to make their offense the unstoppable force they could be.
There’s plenty of star power in this matchup. Both teams are looking to be some of the NFL’s best in 2017, and with a standout win in Week 2, either team will make a statement early in the season.
As long as everything clicks, it should be Pittsburgh’s statement to make.
