Minnesota Vikings at Pittsburgh Steelers 9 to 26

Sunday, September 17, 2017, Week 2

The Pittsburgh Steelers hosted the Minnesota Vikings for their Week 2 matchup with both teams coming off Week 1 victories. The Vikings offense, explosive in their Week 1 victory, was held in check by the Steelers defense. The Vikings starting quarterback Sam Bradford sat this week due to an injured knee, forcing backup Case Keenum into the lineup.

The Steelers scored two first half touchdowns off of Ben Roethlisberger and never trailed all game. The Vikings scored a field goal halfway through the second quarter to get on the board, and scored a touchdown off of fullback C.J. Ham’s third quarter touchdown run to close the gap to eight points. However, four second half field goals by Steeler’s kicker Chris Boswell kept the game at a two-position lead throughout the second half.
