Minnesota Vikings Unbeaten No More - BSN SportsMinnesota Vikings arrived at Heinz Field in the city of 3 rivers with a record of 6-0, while rivals reaped the Pittsburgh Steelers a 4-2 record. The "Vikes" were listed as one of the best teams in the league, while the Steelers got more attention in their duel for the top of the AFC North with the Cincinnati Bengals.

Brett Favre, Adrian Peterson and the rest of the Minnesota Vikings were all that could be less than they should be ... Perfect.

And so they saw as the great defense of the Steelers ended their perfect record with 2 long touchdown returns in the 6 1 / 2 final minutes of the game.

The QB's anticipated duel between Favre and the NFL's leading passer Ben Roethlisberger, became a defensive duel.

The Vikings (6-1) allowed too in the third quarter when, after 3 attempts fail in the Touchdown zone where Peterson touched the ball just one of those three occasions, namely a field goal that kept Pittsburgh up by 13 -10.

For the Steelers, to achieve such detention was instrumental in the party and the two defensive touchdowns that followed.

"It was the biggest moment of the game," said S Ryan Clark.

LaMarr Woodley returned a fumble 77 yards for a touchdown and Keyaron Fox did the same 82 yards giving the Steelers a 27-17 victory on Sunday.

"We had three opportunities." Favre said. "It's easy now to look back and say we should do this or should have done that."

Sports Bettting at the SportsbookAdrian Peterson said, "To play against the Pittsburgh Steelers and his defense - I feel that is the best defense in which we played - you have to get those seven points. I'm really annoyed at having achieved only three.

Favre (34 of 51 334yardas) was statistically better than Roethlisberger (14 of 26, 175 yards) except for turnovers.

Pittsburgh outscored the Vikings in 386 to 259 yards but could not override his great defense.

Now the Steelers will keep the following week to rest before returning on Monday night visiting Mile High in a game that could see again in January.

On the side of the Vikings will make the anticipated trip to Lambeau Field in Wisconsin, Brett Favre will be reunited with his past in what is undoubtedly the morbid game of the season.
