Heyward leads resurgent Steelers defense

(TSX / STATS) -- PITTSBURGH -- Cam Heyward is back, and so, apparently, is a dominating Steelers defense.

For the second consecutive game, the Steelers defense did its job. They held the Minnesota Vikings to only 237 yards of total offense, more than 100 yards per game better than the average they allowed a year ago.

The Steelers stifled the Minnesota Vikings 26-9 and allowed only one touchdown, a 1-yard run by C.J. Ham in the third quarter after the "lulled" Steelers defense allowed a 25-yard run by Dalvin Cook, who otherwise gained only 39 yards on 11 other carries.
