UPDATE - Peter King actually calls the game correctly in his MMQB at SI (for the most part)

I suppose it shouldn't be a surprise to note that at least one early article summing up the game, Sports Illustrated's Recap, already fails to mention the Viking's mostly dominant performance and claims that the Steeler's defense badly outplayed us.

What's missing, as you may have already noticed, is the horrifically bad Referee decision to call "tripping" on Dugan that basically cost us a TD and allowed them to get the play that led to the fumble return for a TD (never even happens if the TD is scored as it should've been).  Simply awful reporting.  One can expect Peter King and probably Don "I love Green Bay" Banks to also follow suit and fail to mention the craptacular call that changed the game for the Vikes.

In all fairness, the Steelers took advantage of those turnovers, particularly the fluky ricocheted pass off of Taylor's hand, and congrats to them on their victory but it's hard for Viking's fans to stomach ensuing articles that entirely fail to report how the game actually unfolded.

UPDATE (Monday Morning) - Well I'm pleased to note that Peter King actually had the cajones to call the game in his Monday Morning QB column mostly as it happened - noting the awful penalty and its potent affect on the game's results.  He always properly notes that the Interception was an unlucky deflection.  I was somewhat impressed.
