Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin grew salty discussing running back Le’Veon Bell this week. The coach was tired of talking about Bell’s ineffectiveness in Week 1, but the coach will need a more dynamic Bell when the Steelers face a rugged Minnesota Vikings defense on Sunday (10 a.m. PT/1 p.m. ET, FOX, DirecTV).

Bell gained just 32 yards on 10 carries in the Steelers 21-18 win over the Cleveland Browns, and observers wondered if his decision to skip training camp and preseason in a contract dispute left him out of football shape. Tomlin expects Bell to be shaper against the Vikings after another week of practice. The Steelers (1-0) will need him to regain the form that produced 1,268 yards rushing in 2016.
Minnesota (1-0) quarterback Sam Bradford, also known as “Captain Checkdown,” was anything but a conservative quarterback in their win against New Orleans. Bradford threw for 346 yards and three touchdowns, including completions of 37, 35 and 21 yards in the game. The Vikings defense was impressive, holding the usually high-scoring Saints to four field goals and a meaningless touchdown late in the game.
