One statistical rarity from the Vikings 34-27 win over the Steelers Sunday at Wembley is in the time-of-possession column. Pittsburgh had the ball for 13 more minutes than Minnesota, but still came up short.
Sometimes, you know, the numbers do lie. Aside from that, here are some key stats that may reveal how the Vikings won one.
Number of pass attempts by Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger, putting him ahead of Terry Bradshaw for most passes attempted in Steeler history.
Number of yard rushing for the entire Steeler team.
Yards per catch for Minnesota WR Greg Jennings, including 70 yards on one of his two touchdowns.
The number of sacks by Vikings DE Jared Allen.
Interceptions thrown by Vikings QB Matt Cassel.
