Vikings defensive end Jared Allen said earlier this week he's gonna do everything he can to "sack Big Ben" when his team takes on the Steelers Sunday in London.
It isn't much of a shocking statement, nor was Ben Roethlisberger's response.
"I would expect nothing less from him."
The Daily Mail in London, one of the nation's largest publications covered this, and every other story between the teams this week, and if nothing else, it's an interesting look at how differently media cover games. The photos on the page are noticeably sharper than the ones we're used to seeing, and the video montage they have features no talking heads; just players answering questions and clips from the Steelers' practice.
What's even cooler is you have an option of which sponsored ad you want to watch - or not watch - before playing the video. It's definitely worth a read before kickoff.
