    Default Steelers hand Vikings first loss of season

    Steelers hand Vikings first loss of season

    It was over when ...

    Brett Favre's screen pass caromed off Chester Taylor's hands directly to Steelers LB Keyaron Fox, who picked it off and returned it 82 yards for a touchdown with 1 minute to play. Instead of facing a third-and-3 at Pittsburgh's 26-yard line with a chance to tie or win the game, the Vikings suddenly found themselves down 27-17 and their unbeaten streak a minute from being history.

    [HIGH-LIGHT]Game ball[/HIGH-LIGHT]

    The entire Steelers' linebacking corps dominated the game. They constantly harrassed Favre and finished with three sacks and two touchdowns as a unit.

    [HIGH-LIGHT]Key Stat[/HIGH-LIGHT]

    Minnesota dominated many of the statistical categories, but Pittsburgh's two defensive touchdowns in the final 7 minutes proved to be the difference.

    [HIGH-LIGHT]Noteworthy[/HIGH-LIGHT]

    Favre had a season-high 51 pass attempts and threw for a season-high 334 yards. ... Minnesota's Percy Harvin had his second kickoff return for a touchdown this season. ... Steelers LB Lawrence Timmons left with an injury in the fourth quarter and did not return. ... Pittsburgh rookie Mike Wallace scored his second touchdown in three weeks.

    I am not only happy for the win, but also for the reason now to slow the Farve worship.
