NFL fans on the other side of the pond were treated to a great game of American football as the Minnesota Vikings (1-3) held off the late charging Pittsburgh Steelers (0-4) for a 34-27 victory.
The Steelers marched down the field on their final drive of the game, and looked to be in position for a game tying TD, when QB Ben Roethlisberger was sacked and fumbled the ball away.
The Vikings built a large lead thanks to a huge game from RB Adrian Peterson (140 yards, 2 TDs) and a solid performance from their back-up QB Matt Cassell (16-25, 248 Yards and 2 TDs). The Steelers chipped away on the strength of Roethlisberger’s arm (383 yards) and the legs of rookie RB Le'Veon Bell (2 TDs).
