In the end, the Pittsburgh Steelers and Minnesota Vikings game ended the way it should. The Steelers offensive line allowed pressure on quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and he fumbled the ball away to the Vikings.
The Vikings got the 34-27 win with the help of solid quarterback play by backup Matt Cassel and exceptional running by their star back Adrian Peterson. The Steelers defense had played well this season, but much of this loss falls on them, as they failed to get off the field several times.
The Steelers now head into the bye week with far more questions than answers about this team. Hopefully, with a week off some of the problems can be addressed and the rest of the season can be a positive.
Minnesota defeats Pittsburgh 34-27.
