Steelers Stock Report: Whose stock is rising or falling after the team’s win over the Vikings

Steelers Stock Report: Whose stock is rising or falling after the team’s win over the Vikings

The Pittsburgh Steelers are 2-0 and it’s time to check the market to see whose stock is rising or falling after Week 2. Following a strange, almost frustrating 26-9 victory over the Minnesota Vikings, the Pittsburgh Steelers are 2-0. That means the Steelers are right where they were expected to be, at least according to the vast majority of the football-cognizant populace. Let’s take a gander at some of the particulars: The Front Seven - Stock Up The Steelers, following a seven-sack performance against the Browns in Week 1, swore fealty to the blitz yet again in Week 2.

Steelers offense still a work-in-progress after 26-9 romp over the Vikings

Steelers offense still a work-in-progress after 26-9 romp over the Vikings

The Pittsburgh Steelers offense remains a work-in-progress, yet they are still undefeated. Ugly wins are trending right now in the NFL. Don’t buy that? Well Sunday’s 26-9 Steelers win over the Minnesota Vikings might be considered ugly, in terms of the end result. Hours before the game, Vikings quarterback Sam Bradford, who came off a career game the prior week at home vs. New Orleans, was placed on the inactive list due to an injury of his left knee. That meant Case Keenum was thrown into battle, hurting the Vikes plans, and it showed as the norsemen could only muster 2 scoring...

The Pittsburgh Steelers are now 2-0 after their Week 2 win over the Minnesota Vikings. Time to take a look at who were ‘Winners’, and who were ‘Losers’. After a game there are players who impress, and some who disappoint. This is where our weekly “Winners and Losers” column was born.

3 Keys to Victory: Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Minnesota Vikings Week 2

Blazing the path to 2-0 will require a more balanced performance between the Steelers’ offense and defense. When the Pittsburgh Steelers take the field on Sunday for what promises to be a raucous “welcome back” from their Steel City fans, they’ll face a Minnesota Vikings team considerably tougher than many anticipated back when the Steelers originally released their 2017 schedule. By contrast to Pittsburgh’s Week 1 opponent, the Cleveland Browns, the Vikings are a team with a realistic shot to defeat any NFL team on any given Sunday, Thursday or Monday. In view of what we saw (or...

The Pittsburgh Steelers might be facing Case Keenum instead of Sam Bradford. The Pittsburgh Steelers may be facing Sam Bradford under center for the Minnesota Vikings, and they might not. After being on the injury report the majority of the week, Bradford isn’t just listed as ‘Questionable’, but the knee injury will leave him as a game-time decisions for the Vikings.

Leading up to the Steelers vs. Vikings game in Week 2, we sat down with The Daily Norseman to talk about this matchup from the other side of the fence. Sometimes interconference games in the NFL can be tough to predict. In fact, considering these two teams rarely face one another, it takes fans a lot of study just to get to know the opponent.

Sam Bradford’s Knee Issue Is Nothing New

Sam Bradford’s Knee Issue Is Nothing New

Be optimistic he will play Sunday, but don’t be surprised he has knee issues As you know by now Minnesota Vikings quarterback Sam Bradford is listed as questionable for Sundays game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Many fans are panicking at the thought of losing Bradford, especially after last week’s incredible performance against the Saints. But we’re not surprised he is having knee issues, right? Okay so some of us might be. Or some of us have chosen to look the other way and ignore that this appears to be the same knee that he injured in 2013 and 2014 when he tore his ACL. We...

Bucky Hodges was dubbed a potential steal in the draft after the Vikings took the tight end out of Virginia Tech in the sixth round. Hodges was raw but had a ton of athleticism; many fans and draft analysts were excited about Hodges’ potential at the next level. In fact, he was one of the odds-on favorites to win the coveted title of “Mr. Mankato” heading into Training Camp last month. However, Hodges didn’t really...
