Case Keenum to start against Steelers with Sam Bradford out

JuJu Smith-Schuster gets first NFL touchdown to extend Steelers lead

NFL Week 2 live: Former Trojan Smith-Schuster scores first TD

This one felt like a bigger blowout than that as quarterback Sam Bradford picked apart the Saints defense en route to NFC Player of the Week honors.

Wide receiver Stefon Diggs is one player every fantasy owner should consider starting this week against the Steelers. The Steelers want to get him more touches, especially early in the game, so he can develop a rhythm.

Cleaning up the penalties will need to be the first thing on Pittsburgh's mind.

The Vikings have to stop receiver Antonio Brown.

He was limited to 47 yards on 13 touches last week, playing 73 percent of the snaps.

Pittsburgh has too many weapons on offense, and despite the Vikings defense being a top unit in the National Football League, the Steelers can match that.

Are They For Real?

Only backup offensive lineman Jerald Hawkins (knee) is officially out as the Steelers look for their fourth 2-0 start under Tomlin.

No matter how good the Vikings defense is, this particular offense can expose any great defense with all of the playmakers that they possess.

Pittsburgh and Minnesota's defenses played well in each team's season opening win, but there is a chance both teams could be without key players on that side of the ball in Week 2. Both were limited in practice.

Led by new defensive coordinator Gregg Williams, the Browns held a potent Steelers offense to just 290 total yards-the lowest yardage total allowed by Cleveland since December 2015. Rhodes meanwhile is a lockdown guy who helped limit the effectiveness of Michael Thomas in Week 1.

The NFL fined three Steelers $24,309 each for unnecessary roughness against the Browns. But it should be fun to watch when they do lock horns.

History can sometimes hurt and for the Minnesota Vikings, one of two teams to lose four Super Bowls and never win one, lost one of those Super Bowls to the Steelers in January, 1975, 16-6.

BIG-PLAY CAPABLE: The Vikings' season high for completions of at least 20 yards in a game last season was five.

The Vikings also sport an extremely talented front seven so the run game is not going to get an easy opponent to get back on its feet.
