Default How many yards do you see the Steelers running game gaining on Sunday?

I know our passing attack has become more lethal, but there will be times in this game where our running game will be needed to at least take some of the pressure off Ben, even knowing the Vikings do not possess a great pass defense. I believe this, along with the screen game, will help to slow down Jared Allen. I'm pretty sure he's been a key of emphasis in practice this week.

Running the ball effectively will also give our line confidence against that Viking front 7 and open up the play action for Ben and our wideouts.

I don't see us sustaining the running game very much, and I think the playcalling will heavily favor the pass, especially with Winfield hurt.

I voted under 75 yards, but think the backs will have significant role in pass blocking and breaking off for dump-offs.

Pass blocking and those dump offs definitely. That screen game will be huge as well.

I think about 75-100 yards will be enough to keep some pressure off of Ben.

I voted under 75 as well.

55 for Rushard (a TD or 2 included) 20 for WP.

I agree, the screen passes will be very important, Moore will have to be good in that role.

I get the feeling Moore will play a bigger role in a win than Parker.

Over 125. Mendenhall busts off an 80 yarder for a TD this week.
