Despite of the many controversies that the NFL is dealing, it is back as the Preseason starts tonight between the Minnesota Vikings and the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Vikings vs Steelers kick off time is at 8:00 PM ET at Canton, Ohio.
Star running back Adrian Peterson will be sitting out in the preseason opener. Surely, Peterson wants to play the game. He was suspended last September following an indictment. Peterson also was rumored to be traded because of his perception that the Vikings left him in troubled times. However, the Vikings and Peterson met halfway as they look for a brighter season.
For the Steelers, Ben Roethlisberger is expected not to play. He wants to be injured free and will not take risk in the preseason opener. Roethlisberger is anticipating a duel against Tom Brady in the Opening game of the regular season.
The Steelers will surely be working hardly on their defense to carry them again into the playoffs. Though the offense with Roeithlisberger will always be great, barring an injury, the defense has to play better.
