Player Spotlight

Much like last week, this game is filled with players that can take control of a game at any time. This section is geared more towards the guys most fans may not know about.

Rookie edge rusher, T.J. Watt, had himself quite the rookie debut last week by leading the team in tackles, sacks and even adding one interception. Another linebacker with two sacks was, Anthony Chickillo. The young linebacker was forced into duty when Bud Dupree was forced to sit with an apparent shoulder injury.

As eluded to in the open, Kyle Rudolph should be a big part of the offensive game plan. However, David Morgan should also be used as more than just a blocker when near the goal line. He is the Vikings’ version of Jesse James and should be used as such. James had two short touchdowns last week and Morgan could be used similarly.

Special teams may play an immense role in the outcome of this week-two contest. Kai Forbath missed an extra point once again last week and may have the fate of his game on his foot. Steelers’ place kicker, Chris Boswell has been quite consistent and will certainly know more about the wind in Heinz field.
