Week 1 of the NFL season wrapped last night in a Monday Night Football double-header. Sam Bradford and the Vikings rolled the New Orleans Saints. Rookie running back Dalvin Cook was impressive.
Meanwhile, on the Saints side of the ball, there appeared to be a “discussion” on the sidelines between Adrian Peterson and head coach Sean Payton. Both have since denied it was any sort of heated exchange. The Denver Broncos hung on to win after blocking a Chargers field goal on a re-kick.
Falcons head coach Dan Quinn spoke with the media via conference call and talked about what impressed him most in his team’s win. It was a big confidence boost for the defense being in a situation for a goal-line stand to win the game at the end. Hugh says as a former defensive player, that’s exactly how you want to win a game.
