Dalvin Cook‘s shoulder isn’t preventing him from doing anything he wants to do. The Vikings running back, who is wearing a harness, is having his way with the Steelers defense.

He has 117 yards and a touchdown on only seven carries. Cook has more rushing yards in only two games this season: He ran for 140 against Carolina in Week 6 and 131 in Week 2 against Carolina.

The 117 yards is the most in the first half of a game in his career.

The Vikings have 137 rushing yards on 10 carries, with Alexander Mattison getting 20 yards on three carries.

Cook’s 29-yard touchdown run has given the Vikings a 16-0 lead.

It could be worse for the Steelers. Greg Joseph missed his first extra point try wide right, his fourth missed PAT of the year, and he missed a 53-yard field goal wide left.

  1. Steelers quit…again. The defense is horrible. The Offensive Line is atrocious. Ben looks like he’s already planning life after football. Tomlin has his usual “deer in the headlights” look before half time. Couldn’t happen to a better team than the Squealers.

    Packers fans make sure you read those stats “delicately”

    What a performance. And just think…

    If he finishes out this game

    And if the Steelers don’t finish the comeback it looks like they’re mounting

    And if the Bears lay down like the Steelers did for three quarters tonight

    And Dalvin performs like this again

    Dalvin will be largely responsible for your team having clawed it’s way all the way back to mediocrity.

    Impressive!
