Bradford shreds Saints to spoil Peterson's return to Minnesota

Bradford shreds Saints to spoil Peterson's return to Minnesota

In any case, the rookie out of Florida State is primed to take the Vikings offense out of the Adrian Peterson stone age and give it the modern amenity of a running back who can functionally do it all.

Peterson, who signed a two-year deal worth $7million with New Orleans in April after being released by Minnesota, finished with just 18 yards on six carries.

"You guys always have nice things to say about them, right?" "He is a great player. I'm learning, but there's a lot to learn".

The Minnesota Vikings renewed acquaintances with Adrian Peterson on Monday, but they didn't allow him to do much damage after building a 10-point halftime lead. Peterson brings his new club, the New Orleans Saints, into U.S. Bank Stadium on Monday night for its season opener against the Vikings. The Saints still have versatile lineman Senio Kelemente to fill in for Strief, and he's actually not that bad in pass protection.

At first, Peterson said the brief exchange, video of which circulated on the internet during the game, was "confidential" and "just communication". He only rushed for 18 yards on 6 carries. "I want to stick it to everyone we play", the 32-year-old Peterson told the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.

Bradford threw for 346 yards and three touchdowns, and wide receiver Stefon Diggs scored two touchdown receptions in the first half.

The fourth quarter saw Bradford complete on another touchdown pass; this one was a 15-yard pass to Kyle Rudolph.

While Bradford was impressive, he was facing a pass defence that ranked dead last in the National Football League a year ago in yards allowed per game (274.0) and fourth-worst in passer rating allowed (98.1).

Conflict or not, Peterson is likely in for big adjustment with New Orleans. But when it came to replacing Peterson on the ground, Cook more than delivered in his first game. I think he was into it; we were all into it. However, he broke loose with more than 100 yards in the second half alone.

Elsewhere, the Chargers opened their season against Denver in their first game since moving from San Diego to Los Angeles with a 24-21 loss to the Broncos.

The Saints will host the defending champion New England Patriots (0-1) at the Superdome on Sunday.

Brady said it was harder to move on after last Thursday night's 42-27 setback to the Kansas City Chiefs.
