2021 Week 13 Steelers Vs Vikings Live Update & Discussion Thread – Second Half

The Pittsburgh Steelers’ first half really couldn’t have been worse. Defense has become completely MIA in every sense of the word. Vikings receivers open wide all over the pitch and wide open spaces for their running backs every time they touch the ball. And as bad as the defense is, the offense hasn’t been at all better, with Roethlisberger seemingly sacked every other pullback. A truly soulless effort all around.
