“Honestly, I have no idea with him,” Roethlisberger told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “You can’t get a read on him. One day, he’s practicing, one day, he’s not; one day, he’s going hard, the next day, he’s not.”

 

3. The Steelers give, but they don’t take away.

The Vikings are even in turnover differential because their defense has 10 takeaways, second in the league behind Chicago. The Steelers are minus-9 because they have the only defense in the league without a takeaway.

Vikings coach Leslie Frazier sounded like a guy who wanted to knock on the nearest piece of wood when the Steelers’ fruitless takeaway efforts were mentioned.

“We’d like to make it four games that they don’t have any takeaways,” he said.

Ponder, who has turned the ball over seven times (five interceptions, two fumbles) in three games, said Pittsburgh’s experience on defense makes it dangerous to assume anything.

“They’ve had the ball in their hands and just weren’t able to catch the ball,” he said. “They’re solid, one of the best defenses in the league. Especially with the experience they have. They’re a little older, but [safeties Troy] Polamalu and [Ryan] Clark, they’re all over the place in what they’re doing. You can tell they’re route reading and guessing on stuff.”
