In the city of Big Ben, it was Greg Jennings and Adrian Peterson who proved to be the biggest attractions.
That means Ben Roethlisberger is leaving London with the Pittsburgh Steelers off to their worst start since 1968 — and with only the faintest of hopes of making the playoffs.
Jennings made two touchdown catches, Peterson ran for two scores, and the Vikings’ defense made a big stop with time running out to preserve a 34-27 win over the Steelers on Sunday for their first win of the season.
Playing at Wembley Stadium as part of the NFL’s annual International Series, Everson Griffen stripped Roethlisberger of the ball on the 6-yard line with 19 seconds left and Kevin Williams recovered the fumble to seal the victory.
The Steelers fell to 0-4 for the first time in 45 years. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
