3 impressive Steelers performances against the Vikings
The Steelers, once again, made a comeback but fell short against the Vikings on Thursday night, but they couldn’t have made it a game without contributions from these players.
The Pittsburgh Steelers fall short 36-28 on Thursday night against the Minnesota Vikings. The team did not show up for the first three quarters but suddenly hit the gas pedal and made it a game during the fourth.
There are a few other players that made it possible to almost win but there were some that just flat out saved the game. These three players listed down below made the comeback possible and played their hearts out tonight.
Steelers RB Najee Harris
Najee Harris wasn’t done any favors Thursday tonight by his offensive line but still cranked out 94 yards on 20 carries from the ground and a touchdown. Najee also caught 3 passes for 10 yards and a touchdown. Harris was used late in the game and picked up some important yardage as the line played surprisingly better overall.
Najee busted out a 23-yard gain as his longest run of the night and kept shaking off defenders, he looked like a young Le’Veon Bell. But Najee didn’t do just that, he also muscled forward for a first down after being swarmed by defenders, it was all Najee Harris’s power on that play.
The rookie also made franchise history during Thursday’s game. He surpassed Le’Veon Bell for most scrimmage yards by a Steelers rookie, and the team still has 4 games left on the schedule. Harris has been making everything out of nothing the entire year and did the same today against the Vikings. He got bent many different ways and many looked like he got banged up, thankfully he does yoga.
