NFL Week 2 live: Former Trojan Smith-Schuster scores first TD

JuJu Smith-Schuster gets first NFL touchdown to extend Steelers lead

After an nearly easy victory against the New Orleans Saints, and a career day for Sam Bradford, excitement has been running rampant for the Vikings.

Now, the Vikings have dropped five of their past six on the road.

Week 2, though, will be much different for this Vikings team.

Three starters - QB Sam Bradford (knee), LB Anthony Barr (hamstring) and CB Xavier Rhodes (knee) - were listed Friday as questionable for Sunday's game.

Pittsburgh said one reason for Bell's usage - he played 43 of the team's 60 offensive snaps - was the number of penalties.

CLEVELAND FANS had to be thrilled with the performance of the Browns last week against the Pittsburgh Steelers, even in a loss. That mark was good for an average of 11.1 yards per reception; receivers were targeted 28 times too.

The Vikings during that period outscored foes by an average of 7.9 points.

Tight end Kyle Rudolph is also another high-quality fantasy player.

In total, Haden gave up 109 passing yards on Sunday. He also caught three passes for 15 yards.

Showing it against Pittsburgh will add to the credibility.

Regardless of how shitty the Steelers looked last week, and they did look shitty, they still won the game over the Cleveland Browns which makes the problems that presented themselves easier to deal with. By the time Brees finally found the end zone with 1:56 left, the game was out of reach. Despite being a rookie, Dalvin Cook did an great job last week picking up blitzers as well as becoming a safety valve out of the backfield.

The Steelers will need to get after him and get him off his spot as often as possible (Bradford has adequate mobility and can throw on the run but would prefer not to). He had just 10 carries for 32 yards.

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer knows Pittsburgh well from his days in Cincinnati. That's especially true for the Steelers, who really didn't play many of their front-line players in the preseason this year.

Minnesota has a one-game edge in the series, 9-8, with just 17 games spanning from 2013 to 1962. While the Steelers defense may have looked good in Week one, they were not facing almost the weapons they are in Week two.

Fantasy impact: Let's be real, Thielen blew up a bad defense Week 1.

That much is obvious by the fact that they promoted Sloter as a back-up to Bradfords back-up, Case Keenum. Additionally, Bradford performs better when he has more time in the pocket.
