Bradford, Vikings cruise past Saints 29-19 in opener

  • New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees left and Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers right will play in season-opening games on Monday Night Football

A lot of the talk heading into the game was Adrian Peterson's return to Minnesota, but Vikings rookie Dalvin Cook grabbed the spotlight.

There was so much chatter about Adrian Peterson carrying only six times in the game. Through three quarters, Brees was 12-for-20 with 149 yards and zero touchdowns.

Richards said it had been a while since he had played that close to the line of scrimmage, or in the box, as the Pats went with a dime package, utilizing more defensive backs against a West Coast-style offense. The offensive line is still a mess, so the running game probably won't be a focal point of the scoring attack. McAllister had 107 carries for 418 yards and five scores, while Bush had 106 carries for 404 yards and two touchdowns. He also added three receptions for 10 yards.

It appears Sam Bradford's early season greatness is upon us once again. Ingram has 96 catches in the last two seasons, allowing quarterback Drew Brees to have another weapon coming out of the backfield.

The Vikings who follow the spreads probably have a little bit of a chip on their shoulder heading into this one. The last time the Vikings played in Pittsburgh was in 2009 and the Steelers won that home game 27-17 even though Ben Roethlisberger only completed 14 total passes for 175 yards in the contest.

On the re-do, Harris - who made the team because of a rash of injuries along the D-line - sliced through and got his right hand on the kick. Bradford suddenly started winging it, throwing the ball down the field to receivers Adam Thielen, with nine catches for 157 yards, and Stefon Diggs showing the fight and spirit with seven catches for 93 yards and two touchdowns.

The Broncos held Philip Rivers to 115 yards passing through three quarters but let him engineer a comeback when Siemian threw an interception and Jamaal Charles fumbled on plays that were upheld despite video evidence that had the crowd of 76,324 convinced they should have been overturned.

He also said that he may have at one point yelled, "I love you!" In the first half, the Saints forced a fumble but failed to recover it. That doesn't mean he's guaranteed any playing time right now.

Improved run blocking up front, combined with a talented back in Cook could see the Vikings' rushing attack become an object of fear for opposing defenses this season. Despite trouble hanging onto a couple of passes thrown his way, he helped salt away the game in the second half.

"In the building, we felt great about those guys", Bradford said.

In a way, he had one of the biggest nights in Minnesota Vikings history: His 127 yards was a team record for a running back making his debut.

The crowd was really fired up for the reunion with another former Vikings great.

Halftime was incredible seeing Randy Moss inducted into the Vikings Ring of Honor and I can actually see in the stadium from my seats where his name will be forever there.

But keep in mind, this was an O-line with rookie tackle Ryan Ramzcyk in place of pro-bowl caliber Left Tackle Terron Armstead.
