The Minnesota Vikings (1-1) lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers (2-0) 26-9 this afternoon in Pittsburgh. Sam Bradford was unable to start today's game due to a knee injury suffered in last week's opener.

It didn't help things that it was a penalty-fest for the Minnesota boys, getting flagged 10 times for 72 yards.
