The Pittsburgh Steelers feature and offense and defense that rank in the bottom half of the league and a lot of that has to do with Ben Roethlisberger's decline. Meanwhile, the Minnesota Vikings have one of the league’s worst defenses in yards but have a Top 10 offense overall.
It is reported that Dalvin Cook might play in this game, but one would have to believe he would not be playing a full snap count. Given that and how poorly the Vikings defense has been this season, I went with Big Ben and the Steelers on the road in this game.
