Black and Gold Forever:
Halftime, Le'Veon Bell scores his first touchdown on a nice seal by Heath Miller on the right side and the Vikings scored twice with a pair of field goals to make it 20-10.
Greg Jennings and Adrian Peterson BOTH had huge plays for touchdowns. The Steelers offense have managed to possess the ball greatly, but have allowed a handful of sacks. Frustrating.
The Steelers secondary have been good, but have also allowed huge gains. The Steelers need to make their own luck here. They have to assert they are the better team here. A lot of bad bounces and some trouble in deep coverage have been killer.
Fact of the matter is the Steelers are down at the half for the fourth time in a row. This is not something we want to get used to, but that's what's going on. The Steelers have shown they can play good D and move the ball. But mental mistakes are doing them in.
The Steelers wide receiver screen game has been excellent, but the offensive line (especially Mike Adams vs. Jared Allen) has been hit or miss. We like what Bell is doing so far, and for the first time all year we have a legit threat in the back field.
The defense is giving Cassel too much time, so let's hope they can get to him in the second half. Here we go.

The Pittsburgh Steelers 0-4 start to the 2013 season has included very few bright spots, but tight end Heath Miller certainly has to be considered one of them even though he's only played in two games.

In the city of Big Ben, it was Greg Jennings and Adrian Peterson who proved to be the biggest attractions.
That means Ben Roethlisberger is leaving London with the Pittsburgh Steelers off to their worst start since 1968 - and with only the faintest of hopes of making the playoffs.

Vikings.com Minnesota Vikings coach Leslie Frazier said Tuesday that he wants to see how well Christian Ponder’s injured ribs have progressed through the bye week before he decides who will start at home against Carolina on Oct. 13. “Christian is still injured but he’s our starting quarterback and we’ll see how he does coming out of the bye,” said

David Paulson sure has looked a lot better since Heath Miller returned to the lineup, hasn’t he? I hardly ever notice him slipping off blocks early, allowing a running back to be tackled behind the line of scrimmage any more.
Oh, that’s right, that’s because he’s effectively been benched.
During the first two weeks of the season, Paulson was essentially...

The new Vikings stadium has been in the news a lot recently, largely because the guy who's fronting about 2% of the bill for it, the multi-millionaire team owner Zygi Wilf, is apparently a liar, cheat, and swindler. At least he's not a dirt burglar! Although, then Adrian Peterson and him would probably be homeys. No, the stadium has had questions about its financing from...
The Pittsburgh Steelers are looking to regain their footing on the season, and they’ve traveled to London to do so. Le’Veon Bell makes his debut today, relegating Isaac Redman to the bench. Heath Miller returned last week, but should be even more involved in the offense this week.

Adrian Peterson continued his assault on the NFL record book with another long run and another 100-yard rushing game. But he wasn’t the only Vikings player making an impact. Matt Cassel, Greg Jenning, Cordarrelle Patterson, Blair Walsh, Jared Allen, Chad Greenway all made recorded their names on the Vikings and/or NFL statistics.
Each week now the Steelers get healthier. Their most important injury is Maurkice Pouncey super-fortunate knee tear, which puts him on the shelf forever (might as well be). The rest of the team though gets healthier as each week passes, a trend started with the return of Heath Miller last week against the Bears and continues with the return of Cortez Allen and Le'Veon Bell.
