Stefon Diggs scores twice as Vikings beat Saints

Adrian Peterson is back! The New Orleans running back returns to Minnesota to face his former Vikings team in Monday Night Football on Sky Sports

She joined ESPN in 2017.

The Minnesota Vikings officially inducted Randy Moss into the Ring of Honor at halftime of Monday night's season-opening game, but they'd been paying tribute to Moss all night long.

Diggs first had cleats made to honor Moss.

Stefon Diggs caught seven passes for 93 yards and two touchdowns and Adam Thielen hauled in nine catches for 157 yards.

And it didn't stop there. He then busted out the popular "Milly Rock" dance move and spun the ball on the ground.

What else is fitting?

Cook became the first Vikings running back to start a season opener since Michael Bennett, in 2001. Mike Zimmer shackling Drew Brees.

Bradford showed the ability to get rid of the ball quickly when necessary, and to make big throws downfield when possible.

Tight end Kyle Rudolph added a touchdown reception in the second half for Minnesota (1-0).

On Monday night, though -when it counted - the offensive line protected Sam Bradford. "I had all the time in the world back there". "Maybe I'll have a double life as an actor and football player." - and was making the rounds Tuesday morning promoting Vikings Boostboxes. "Sam did a great job of checking, and we knew that they were going to give us a bunch of different coverages, so we chose to make sure that we reacted to what they gave us".

"In the building, we felt great about those guys", Bradford said. "We've seen it during OTAs, we've seen it during training camp. And when they play like that, we're going to be a good offense". "Everybody was playing as a team, as a unit".

Cook's 127 yards were the most rushing yards by a Vikings rookie in his debut in franchise history.

Bradford completed 27 of 32 passes for 346 yards and three touchdowns.

"You can't say enough about him", Bradford said. I think those guys came out tonight. "I grew up wanting to play receiver just because of him". "I think we put pressure on them". "I'm hopeful that they'll continue to get better".
