Steelers- Vikings: Steelers Defense Steps Up | NFL Player Rankings

Minnesota Vikings v Pittsburgh Steelers

To start the fourth quarter of this game you would have thought that the Vikings were going to win this game. In the end, the Steelers had two defensive touchdowns late in the game and ended up winning.

Sidney Rice Continues Strong Play

Vikings third year wide receiver Sidney Rice had played strong for a month straight coming into this game. Last week Rice had over 150 yards receiving against the Ravens stingy defense and this week he posted 11 catches for 136 yards.

It’s time to say that Rice is the top receiver for Brett Favre in this offense as Bernard Berrian just hasn’t gotten it done.

Look for Rice on the waiver wire and pick him up fast if he is still available.

Mike Wallace Who?

Steelers rookie receiver Mike Wallace is quietly having a very good season as the Steelers No.3 receiver. For five weeks in a row Wallace has had at least 47 yards receiving in every game and two of the last three he has a touchdown.

In this game Wallace was the beneficiary of Ben Roethlisberger’s only touchdown pass of the day. The touchdown was a 40-yard touchdown as Wallace made a nice catch and then made two defenders miss.

At this time, Wallace isn’t that bad of a waiver pickup if you can stash him away on your bench and hope Santonio Holmes or Hines Ward get hurt.
