As we wait for the Denver Broncos tonight, the first Monday Night Football game is here. It’s the New Orleans Saints at the Minnesota Vikings!

Oh man, how awesome is this. Adrian Peterson is signed by the New Orleans Saints after playing his entire career with the Minnesota Vikings. His first game in the new uniform? On the road against his former team. This should be fun!

At the very least, I’ll be disappointed if its Peterson for 6 carries and 12 yards. Drew Brees will likely need a bit more than that as the Vikings defense is pretty good. They will need to keep Brees moving off his spot and keep the score low enough for Sam Bradford and the offense to keep pace.

As much as I want to pick the Saints to win this game, they just haven’t been very good at all in recent years. Brees puts up the numbers, but the wins just don’t seem to come.
