Ten years and two days after Peterson made his National Football League debut in purple with 103 yards rushing and a 60-yard touchdown reception on this same block of downtown Minneapolis, albeit in a different stadium, he returned in black, white and gold as a part-time player for the pass-first Saints.
That Peterson, what a kidder. In the first half, the Saints forced a fumble but failed to recover it. So this is how Peterson's new chapter begins. "Let's not try to spin it like there is", Peterson said. There's no conflict. I got a lot of respect for coach Payton and his offense. He's a great mind. "We're going to learn from this". While Beckham is just one guy, he and Manning have chemistry and on top of it, he is unsafe on shorter routes as well as deep ones.
"Listen, I'd tell you if we were in a heated exchange, so why don't you ask him", Payton said. "I think we have the capability of doing that on a regular basis".
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.

The upgrades could be either called iPhone 7S/ 7S Plus or Apple might name it the iPhone 8/ 8 Plus altogether. If you are wondering about the case size, it will stay the same and the battery will remain at 18 hours.
Instead, the Vikings produced about as complete of a victory as you could get and demonstrated that they are just fine without the franchise's all-time leading rusher. Sam Bradford was electric against the ailing Saints' defense, throwing for 3 touchdowns, an eye-popping 10.8 YPA and a career high 148.7 passer rating. The defense kept the Saints out of the end zone until a garbage time touchdown. Watching him hustling down the sideline and tripping the Saints return man was awesome as I thought I saw a wedge setting up. Peterson had just six carries for 18 yards in the game. "I'm the ultimate competitor". "I don't know what happened. At the end of the day, we've got to figure out how we can do better". "Not much to evaluate".
Granted, the score didn't work in Peterson's favor.
Members of the Patriots defense intently watched Drew Brees and the vaunted New Orleans Saints offense essentially tamed by the Minnesota Vikings defense Monday night. With confidence in his blockers, Bradford was able to work the ball downfield far more often than a year ago, going 5-for-5 on throws of more than 20 yards.
But Peterson maintains that he "respects" his coach. That depends on opponents and matchups, for sure.
The offense also had no game changing plays from running backs Mark Ingram, rookie Alvin Kamara and Peterson, and a receiving corps led by Michael Thomas and Ted Ginn.
Hurricane Jose twists in Atlantic
As for intensity, the hurricane center is predicting a high-end Category 1 hurricane with 90-mph winds by Saturday. Hurricane Jose continues moving slowly eastward with little change in strength.
It does not get much better than this for the Vikings.
The Saints scored only 1 touchdown in 5 trips to the red zone. He's shown that he's incredibly accurate when he has time.
Peterson knows it's deeper than getting him his touches.
That means Ziggy Ansah and Anthony Zettel (who had a sack and several quarterback hurries) should be able to get after Eli Manning, who looks like he doesn't trust his line as far as he could throw them.
