Vikings, Steelers square off after opening wins

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown warms-up before an NFL football game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Cleveland Browns Sunday Sept. 10 2017 in Cleveland

Bradford on Tuesday had an MRI on the knee after another source told ESPN that the quarterback had experienced swelling, pain and discomfort following Monday night's victory over the New Orleans Saints. Then again, he was playing against the Saints defense, and the Steelers have a solid front seven that can take the run game away. The Steelers officially listed Tuitt as questionable, though Tomlin cautioned it's too early in the season for players to be cleared if they don't practice. And they need Ben Roethlisberger, Le'Veon Bell, the offensive line and Martavis Bryant to play up to their capability in this one. It's clear that things are under wraps right now, possibly because the Vikings are unsure exactly what the deal is.

Minnesota and Pittsburgh will tee off at 1:00 p.m. ET on Sunday at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh.

BACK TO THE FUTURE: Second-round pick Dalvin Cook is coming off a 22-carry, 122-yard effort in his National Football League debut.

So, for the most part, Sunday's regular season opener, in which the Steelers host the Vikings, will be the first chance for Pittsburgh fans to see what the team will look like this season. Chickillo will return to a more reserve role, with Dupree lining up across from rookie T.J. Watt.

Mortensen says the results were negative for serious structural damage, but there was enough concern over the joint to limit Bradford's participation in practice Wednesday and Thursday.

-Steelers WR Antonio Brown vs. Vikings CBs Xavier Rhodes and Terence Newman. He went 27 of 32 for 346 yards and three touchdown passes in a almost flawless performance.

This should be a doozy, but the Steelers are very bad tough to beat at home, meaning the Vikings might have to settle for a near-miss in this excellent contest.

One to look out for is the Jacksonville Jaguars defense/special teams, which had 35 fantasy points in Week 1 against the Houston Texans.

Bradford arrived in Minnesota via a trade with Philadelphia just prior to the start of last season. He amassed just 47 total yards from scrimmage, which, from a guy who ripped it up for 337 yards rushing in two playoff wins previous year, is a weak total. This would put a premium on the offensive line being able to get movement without having extra tight ends or fullbacks in the game.
