Steelers Expect To See Familiar Defensive Scheme Sunday Against Vikings

Related Topics: Pittsburgh Steelers

Even though the Pittsburgh Steelers haven’t played the Minnesota Vikings since 2013, the team’s offense should be pretty familiar with the defense the’ll see on Sunday at Heinz Field thanks to the numerous games they’ve played in past seasons against the Cincinnati Bengals.

While Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer has held that job since 2014, he was previously the defensive coordinator of the Bengals for six seasons from 2008–2013. And while he has changed teams, Zimmer still runs a similar kind of defense with the Vikings that he ran with the Bengals.
