Vikings vs. Steelers Today In London
In a battle of teams both looking to get into the win column for the first time this year, the Minnesota Vikings (0-3) face the Pittsburgh Steelers (0-3) this afternoon at Wembley Stadium in London. Matt Cassel will get the start at quarterback for the Vikes, replacing Christian Ponder who has a broken rib. While Ponder has taken a majority of the heat for Minnesota’s winless start, there is plenty of blame to go around. Both the offensive and defensive lines have underperformed, the defensive secondary remains a concern, and offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave’s decision making has been called into question. There have even been rumblings that the Vikings will need a win in London to save head coach Leslie Frazier’s job. The game can be see on CBS at Noon (CT).
