Match between 0-3 teams not what the NFL expected
Back when this game was announced, it was looked upon as an event that will help to push the NFL brand in the United Kingdom. Then reality came calling.
The Minnesota Vikings have yet to get off the ground this season falling to the Lions, Bears and the Browns while the Steelers have succumbed to the Titans, Bengals and the Bears.
Adding insult to injury, Vikings QB Christian Ponder is now listed as doubtful with a rib injury picked up against the Browns.
“we’re going to push it to the limit and see what we can do, in a smart way. But I’m doing everything I can to play,” Ponder said.
