Continued: One worrisome miss serves as wart on Walsh's record day

Rough for Robinson

Cornerback Josh Robinson had another shaky outing. He got beat on a 36-yard catch by Emmanuel Sanders in the first quarter. On that same drive, Robinson got sucked inside on a run and Miller blocked him, opening up the outside for Le’Veon Bell on an 8-yard touchdown run.

On Pittsburgh’s first possession of the second half, Robinson was called for a 48-yard pass interference penalty on a pass to Antonio Brown. That gave the Steelers the ball at the 1-yard line, setting up an easy touchdown run by Bell.

Robinson did collect a 4-yard tackle for loss on a catch by Brown in the fourth quarter.

Secondary shuffle

The Vikings were without two starters in the secondary, cornerback Chris Cook and safety Jamarca Sanford.

Marcus Sherels started in place of Cook, and Andrew Sendejo replaced Sanford.

Frazier has resisted moving rookie first-round pick Xavier Rhodes to right cornerback in Cook’s absence. Frazier prefers to keep Rhodes on the left side in the nickel package.

Sendejo rotated throughout the game with Mistral Raymond, who was active for the first time this season.

Etc.

• The Vikings finished without a turnover for the first time this season. They entered the game with 10 turnovers, second-most in the NFL.

• Chad Greenway’s third-quarter interception was the Vikings seventh this season. The team had only 10 interceptions all of last season.

• Sherels had a 68-yard punt return negated by an invalid fair catch signal penalty in the first quarter. Sherels’ return would have given the Vikings the ball at the Steelers 7-yard line. Instead, the Vikings started at their own 24.
