Expect the Unexpected

I’m glad to say that my dire predictions for the outcome of today’s Steelers-Vikings game have so far been somewhat wrong.  Pittsburgh leads only 10-7 at the half, and so far, has not sliced and diced the Vikings’ secondary.

Credit for that lack of gashing goes to the Vikings’ defensive line which played exceptionally well throughout the first half.  And also to back-up cornerback Karl Paymah who has made his presence felt in a positive way.

Things did get worrisome toward the end of the second quarter though, when the pass rush stopped getting to Ben Roethlisberger, and those big holes started showing up in the zone, leading to the Steelers’ only touchdown of the half.

Offensively, the Vikings looked inept early, but got it together later thanks to Brett Favre and Adrian Peterson, who led the way on an impressive drive to take the lead 7-3.

So, all-in-all, things have not been as horrible as I anticipated.  Of course there are still two quarters of football left.  And our problems really didn’t start against Baltimore until the 4th.

    Favre fumbling is not unexpected, because no one has fumbled nor turned the ball over more than him
