Minnesota optimistic Sam Bradford will play against Steelers

Minnesota Vikings vs. Pittsburgh Steelers Preview and Prediction

Report: Vikings have 'guarded optimism' but still concerned about Sam Bradford's knee

Steelers WR Antonio Brown vs. Vikings CB Xavier Rhodes - 11 catches for 182 yards, including an acrobatic fourth-quarter reception to essentially clinch the game: It was just another ho-hum week for Antonio Brown.

"We were just so confident", linebacker Eric Kendricks said.

After games like Monday Night against the Saints I think to myself, perhaps I'll have to change the title of my site! The defense did a nice job of containing any big plays and tightening up in the red zone, holding the Saints to only four field goals and a garbage time touchdown. He will do so Sunday against Minnesota.

"Case is experienced, and he's started games in the NFL", Wright said. We'd play them in the preseason if we didn't play them in the regular season. Bryant's lack of production is a cause for concern.

Before a 15-yard carry that iced the game, Bell was a non-factor for the Steelers in the opener. He began last season 4-0 with a 109.7 rating and 7.9 yards per attempt. Especially when you have been away from it for a while. Despite the designation, Vikings coach Mike Zimmer told reporters Friday he anticipates Bradford will start this weekend.

Repeating it on the road today in Pittsburgh against a team that figures to play into January and beyond would go a long way toward quieting the doubters. That is what took some getting adjusted to.

Certainly, you can say that all of that yardage was put up against a New Orleans defense that is, well, pretty bad. "But I will be fine this week". The Steelers are coming in with something to prove. His teammates already have seen his presence in the locker room.

"I've heard that it's a tough place to play", wide receiver Adam Thielen said. "He's a great role model now, one of those guys who's always in a positive mood".

"I think that's something I've learned in the National Football League - you don't need to do everything yourself", Goff said after the Rams' 46-9 win. "He's doing everything he needs to do and staying on top of what he got going on".
