The Vikings struggled early against the Browns, but were able to pull away while in London in the second half to keep the Browns winless. Jerrick McKinnon had 120 total yards and scored a touchdown to lead the charge for the Vikings offense.

Juju Smith-Schuster also had a monster game after finally finding his bike. His bike had been reported as stolen a couple of weeks ago. The Steelers did just enough as they squeaked out a 20-15 win over the Lions.
