We have reached week two of the NFL season and this game will be on Sunday afternoon.
Two perfect teams will face off at Heinz Field. The Minnesota Vikings will make the trip to Pittsburgh to take on the Steelers.
The Minnesota Vikings have won the last two games played between the two teams. The last game was played in London between the two teams and the Vikings won 14-3.
People were worried about the Minnesota Vikings come out of training camp, but most of those questions were answered in a big way in week one.
They dominated the New Orleans Saints in every faucet of the game on the way to a convincing 29-19 victory.
For a team that really liked to throw short passes last year with Sam Bradford, he really opened up the offense in a big way.
He threw for 346 yards and three touchdowns. Adam Thielen had 157 yards receiving and Diggs hauled in 93 yards and two touchdowns.
The defensive side of the ball the Vikings frustrated Drew Brees all night. He couldn’t get into a groove and the Vikings had no issue slowing him down all night.
If the Vikings want to win against the Steelers the defense needs to do the same thing to Big Ben that they did to Drew Brees.
The Pittsburgh Steelers got the win in week end and at the end of the day that’s all that matters, but they didn’t impress anyone in week one that is for sure.
It was a struggle in week one and it went all the way down to the end until the Steelers finally pulled it out winning by a final score of 21-18.
Ben Roethlisberger did end up throwing for 263 yards and two touchdowns, but he didn’t look that impressive doing it. He missed a lot of easy throws and that kept the game a lot closer then it really should have been.
The defense did play really well against the Browns. They only allowed 180 passing yards and 57 rushing yards. It was only the Browns but they could have shut it down after they had some real struggles early in the game.
This game is going to be a lot bigger test then the Browns though for the Steelers. The Vikings offense looked impressive in week one, and they are going to need to find a way to slow down Sam Bradford and the Vikings offense.
Big Ben is also going to need to do a better job of controlling the offense. The Vikings defense is about two classes up from the Browns.
If Big Ben and Antonio Brown can get on the same page again in this game, it could be a big afternoon for the Steelers.

4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: Vikings ATS
The fact that the Vikings come into this game as the underdogs by seven points is very disrespectful to the Vikings team.
NFL Free Week 2 Score Prediction: Vikings 24 – Steelers 21
I think their defense will step up big against Big Ben and win this game straight up.
But even if they don’t win the game straight up, they will for sure cover the spread in this one.
