NEXT OPPONENT: PITTSBURGH (1-0)
The Vikings get a tough road test early against the perpetual AFC power, but they have momentum after a big home showing vs. the Saints.
OPPONENT WEEK 1
Steelers 21, Browns 18
Ben Roethlisberger passed for 263 yards and tight end Jesse James caught both of Big Ben's touchdown strikes to hold off the Browns, who made a game of it at home.
WHAT TO WATCH FOR
Antonio Brown, receiver
Xavier Rhodes got his monster pay raise and now he and the secondary get to earn it against one of the league's best playmakers. Brown was targeted 11 times Sunday and caught all 11, for 182 yards.
A short week on the road is trouble. But why count the Vikings out now? Outlook: Horns up.
