Sam Bradford a game-time decision for Week 2

If Bradford's knee doesn't allow him to play on Sunday, then the Vikings will have to go with veteran backup Case Keenum. As a philanthropist, his charitable efforts have impacted thousands and he also served as the United States Ambassador to Ireland for three years under President Barack Obama. For the Vikings, Bradford won't have almost as clean a pocket with Watt, James Harrison and Anthony Chickillo bearing down on him.

The Steelers already have their franchise rusher, but they're working him back into game shape. I think used strategically it's good.

Minnesota DE Everson Griffen had six tackles and a sack last week. And he also had a great view of Easton's pancake block on Davison.

"Me personally, I feel like I'm going to do it", Dupree said. But it should be fun to watch when they do lock horns. "But it's more fun to see it on the field".

The Vikings' Sam Bradford carved up the Saints defense like he was testing out a katana on Forged in Fire. They play physical, aggressive defense.

Not quite a no-huddle scheme, but offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur said up-tempo is "part of my DNA" that he developed as an assistant coach for no-huddle guru Chip Kelly with the Philadelphia Eagles. They won't disappoint as offense is on full display.

17th regular-season meeting.

This form of offense is a bit of a high-wire act that opens the quarterback up to extra punishment - Wentz absorbed nine hits against the Redskins - but he should continue to impress so long as he stays healthy.

To point out that the Pittsburgh Steelers' running game struggled on Sunday would be stating the obvious. For a team in a strong division, that's a substantial issue for them.

This week's Minnesota Vikings at Pittsburgh Steelers game is a much-anticipated matchup between two of the best teams in the NFL. But if Brown is in the slot, things could get interesting, with either Terence Newman or Mackensie Alexander tasked with slowing down the five-time Pro Bowler. He declined to answer when asked if Bradford has undergone an MRI. "I don't know, a lot of the guys I know their personnel, they've been there for a while, but that's about it". Pittsburgh QB Ben Roethlisberger passed for 263 yards, two TDs and one INT last week.
