Vikings CB Tramaine Brock inactive for season opener

Vikings CB Tramaine Brock inactive for season opener

While this is partially due to missing their star running back, Adrian Peterson, for most of the season, the Vikings dealt with various injuries along their offensive line, which is what really derailed the ground game.

Chargers' Antonio Gates is tied with Tony Gonzalez on 111 touchdown receptions and so needs just one more to break the all-time record for the most by a tight end.

It's hard to say if this is what we'll see out of Bradford all season, considering the Saints play defense like they're in the Big 12, but Bradford seemed to have a much different approach in the season opener. But the biggest thing is going out and beating the New Orleans Saints. "Let's not try to spin it like it is", Peterson said (via ESPN).

Sam Bradford was in the zone during the second quarter as he led the Minnesota Vikings on a scoring drive against the New Orleans Saints.

The Vikings went through the preseason at 2-2 and look to start the new year much the same as they did last year.

Of course, the way the game unfolded, with New Orleans facing a 10-point deficit by halftime and a 17-point deficit in the fourth quarter, had something to do with Peterson's limited usage. The first three times they traveled inside Minnesota's 10-yard line, they settled for a field goal, until Drew Brees finally hit Coby Fleener with a touchdown pass with 1:56 remaining. Peterson finished with just 18 yards on six carries, coming out of the game on most third downs as he did in Minnesota.

When asked about facing Sloane Stephens in the semifinals, Williams asked reporters: "I don't think I have ever played her". Sharapova played well and had some exciting matches, but Williams, Stephens, Vandeweghe and Keys have all stolen the show.

Showtime Says Mayweather vs. McGregor Trending to Break PPV Record
It is going to be one heck of a fight that I think both fighters are going to know once and for all what they are really made of. Mayweather insisted his 50th consecutive win will definitely be his last, while McGregor remains the UFC lightweight champion.

Practices have proven that Zimmer followed through on his promise, and the extra work paid off in the Monday Night Football showdown.

The Broncos has a star-studded roster including arguably the best defensive player in the National Football League in Von Miller.

Zimmer said the situations that came up throughout the game were ones they've practiced and anticipated. We were getting out of the huddle. With second-round RB Dalvin Cook and third-round C Pat Elflein starting, it marked the first time two rookies started on offense for the Vikings since 1963.

His absence leaves the Vikings with one less cornerback to call upon Monday night, with Trae Waynes and Xavier Rhodes being listed as the starters on the team's unofficial depth chart. Three plays later, Diggs hauled in a pass one-handed along the sideline in the end zone for his second touchdown.

Minnesota's offense put point on the board throughout the night, adding fuel to the defense that prevented New Orleans from reciprocating.
