Report: Saints to open at Minnesota on MNF

Adrian Peterson visited the Saints but left without a deal.

Now he might reconsider.

According to Nick Underhill of the New Orleans Advocate, the Saints are going to Minnesota to open the season on Monday Night Football.

That’s ostensibly the first half of the doubleheader, along with the Chargers-at-Broncos game later in the night.

Even if Peterson doesn’t re-sign, it would still be an interesting game, as two teams that are undergoing major changes on one side of the ball are meeting. The Saints are in the midst of their latest defensive fix, while the Vikings are going to be learning about life without the former MVL running back.

  1. Why would he reconsider, because the Vikings wouldn’t pay an injured 30+ runningback who can only play two downs and struggles with pass blocking $18 million dollars?

    Get outta here with that. There’s no bad blood anywhere in there.

  2. What?? How could they schedule such a turkey for the first MNF game? Man these guys running the show have really lost it.

  3. Expect a lot of primetime Viking games leading up to them hosting their own superbowl come February….SKOL….you can catch Packer games on WCOW radio, btw, but nobody cares.

  4. The Vikings already know about life after AP. He has been out for two full years. I don’t wish him any bad luck at all. This is a non story line now though. Many players are switching teams and we don’t talk about them like it shapes the game.

    ALERT! ALERT!

    VIKING FAN PREDICTING SUPER BOWL APPEARANCE.

    Not hoping, not wishing. PREDICTING.

  6. This has to be a mistake or else it’s an effort to get higher ratings on their regular Monday night network programs by scheduling a snoozer on MNF.

  7. Yuck. I hate when the Vikings play MNF to open the season. Remember that egg they laid 2 years ago in SF?

    Stop making me wait one more day after making me wait 9 months!

  8. What are the odds that Bridgewater will be able to walk by then?
    ————–
    1. As good as Eddie Lacy looking trim now that he is in Seattle
    .2. As good as Aaron Rodgers having another beard by then.

  9. the Vikings are going to be learning about life without the former MVL running back.

    What the heck does MVL stand for? I thought Packer fans would have jumped on that one.

    Okay, I’ll start. Most Valuable Loser?

  10. Oh, I’d LOVE to see Fumbleson run against the Vikings D. Of course, it’s not very fair to pick on an old cripple.

  11. Fumbleson would be so intent on gaining yards against his old team (that never had his back), he will have 5 fumbles before he’s benched……or hurt.
