As previously mentioned, the Vikings are all over the Ravens early. And in one of the other high-profile Sunday games featuring a dome team hosting a contender who primarily spends its time playing outdoors, the Saints are sticking it to the Giants.
Already, the Saints lead 14-0.
The first score came on a short run from Mike Bell. The second came on a short pass from Drew Brees to tight end Jeremy Shockey, a former Giant.
In the pregame show, Jay Glazer of FOX reported that Saints players were rallying around Shockey, who was a major disappointment in 2008, his first year with the team. Coach Sean Payton made Shockey a captain for today’s game, Shockey’s first against the team with which he won a Super Bowl ring by double-fisting cocktails from a luxury suite.
