PITTSBURGH - Minnesota Vikings Quarterback Sam Bradford did not play and the Vikings offense struggled to score against the Pittsburgh Steelers losing 26-9.

Minnesota back-up QB Case Keenum struggled, going just 20 of 37 for 167 yards with no touchdowns.

Kyle Rudolph led the Vikings in receiving with four catches for 45 yards.

While the offense struggled to score, the defense struggled with penalties.  Minnesota committed eleven penalties for 131 yards.

The lone bright spot for Minnesota was rookie CJ Ham scoring his first NFL touchdown on 1-yard run in the 3rd quarter. Vikings kicker Kai Forbath missed a extra point for the second week in a row.
