The had ten days to rest and recover because they played Thursday night against the Patriots.
That might be a stretch, but there's no doubt that extending plays is a strength of Wentz, and he now has playmakers who can capitalize by shaking loose downfield.

The Steelers looked really solid last week against the Browns.
Antonio Brown is a beast and he showed that yet again last week in Cleveland, but the Vikings may be better equipped than most teams to defend Brown. Le'Veon Bell's 32 rushing yards against Cleveland was not what he or the Steelers were hoping for in his season debut.

Quarterback Sam Bradford is in his second season with his third National Football League team, but he remains the player selected first overall by St. Louis out of Oklahoma in 2010.
