With the beginning of every season, there is optimism.

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

As he paced behind Payton, Peterson yelled and then glared in the direction of the coach. Peterson had 18 yards on six carries.

The running back wouldn't share what he said, but it doesn't really matter. "Guys made catches in the passing game, and we got the running game going".

The Vikings did not miss Peterson. If Smith is blocked, Ingram scores, easily.

1 - Number of red zone touchdowns allowed by the Vikings defense in five possessions Monday (20 percent). In 2016, the Saints were third best in the National Football League in red zone TD percentage. From the moment he signed with the Saints in April, there was the question of exactly how he would fit into an offense that already had a workhorse running back in Mark Ingram, who produced his first 1,000-yard season in 2016. He literally tackled the Viking he was trying to block.

Cameron Jordan and A.J. Klein each had their hands on a tipped pass in the end zone that fluttered off Cook's hands, missing a critical opportunity to thwart that drive and keep the deficit at four points. Tackle Zach Strief could miss several weeks, with what the National Football League network calls a MCL sprain. Head coach Sean Payton called it a miscommunication.

"Thielen spent the majority of his time inside in the slot against the Saints, catching multiple deep crossing targets and bringing in nine of the ten passes thrown his way, trailing only Antonio Brown in receiving yards after week one". In the off-season, they added linebacker Manti Te'o to their roster in free agency and drafted corner back Marshon Lattimore to boost their secondary. Damon Harrison was very solid in the middle of the line, but ultimately the vaunted pass defense didn't do a ton. But what can we take away from a review of the All-22 game film that we can use to project the Vikings' future? Devante Harris was picked on constantly. Sam Bradford torched the New Orleans defense with a 346-yard, three-touchdown performance. Bradford threw 3 touchdowns, with Stefon Diggs catching 2 of the touchdowns. Cornerback Marshon Lattimore bit on a shorter route, allowing Rudolph to get behind him. Seven different players caught a pass from Brees, and tight end Coby Fleener was the leader of the pack as he caught the Saints' only touchdown.

The new sanctions impose a limit on deliveries of refined oil products and restricts crude oil shipments at their current level. It followed up with a sixth nuclear test on September 3, its largest to date, which it said was a miniaturised hydrogen bomb .

On the play, the Saints chose to rush 4, drop 7.

Behind mostly clean pockets created by a remade offensive line, Bradford completed 27 of 32 passes without a turnover.

Peterson was making his Saints debut and having a homecoming simultaneously in the 29-19 loss to the Minnesota Vikings.

The Saints defense got off to a disappointing start on Monday, compounded by an embarrassing error on the first play of the season.

The Saints had the correct plan. Zach Strief took a serious blow before leaving the game because of this injury. "We're both 0-1 now".

The Patriots are not a good defensive team, and were exposed last Thursday night against Kansas City.

"Each week, it is either a carnival or a catastrophe".
