Adrian Peterson Career Vikings Highlights

Adrian Peterson Career Vikings Highlights

Peterson was New Orleans' leading rusher on Monday night, picking up 18 yards on six carries.

"You can't say enough about him", Bradford said of Cook in an interview after the game. "He is a great player".

The Saints and Vikings will kick things off at approximately 7:10pm ET, as former Vikings star Adrian Peterson makes his return to Minneapolis.

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

The knock on Cook heading into the season was his inexperience as a pass protector and a tendency to fumble.

The second-round draft pick looked just as explosive and comfortable in the offense as his days at FSU.

Even in his first season with Minnesota previous year when he set an National Football League record by completing 71.6 per cent of his passes, Bradford averaged just 7.02 yards per attempt and an even worse 6.2 air yards per pass. "No. Listen, I'd tell you if we were in a heated exchange". "Obviously, the competitor I am, I want to be in every snap". The Broncos pass rush is the best in the business and it will probably mean a painful day for QB Philip Rivers. But Cook finished with 22 carries for 127 yards, along with three catches (on five targets) for 10 yards, as he started to find some room to run when Minnesota began to grind away an eventual 10-point victory.

The last time that the Vikings played in Pittsburgh was in 2009 and the Steelers won that home game 27-17 even though Roethlisberger only completed 14 total passes for 175 yards in the contest.

Of course, the most disappointing part of the offense was the run game, which combined for just 2.9 yards per carry in the loss.

Update (8:39 p.m. CT): New Orleans did insert Peterson into the game on the goalline. It would be Peterson's longest run of the night, as he appeared to be frustrated with coach Sean Payton with his lack of snaps. "I thought it was good to see and encouraging as we move forward".

Meanwhile, Cook broke Peterson's team record for most yards rushing by a rookie in a season opener. Then at 10:20 pm (ET), the Los Angeles Chargers are in Denver to battle the Broncos. During the half time show, former New England Patriots' wide receiver Randy Moss was recognized as the 22nd Ring of Honor member.

That was something that the Saints were never able to do last night.
