Adrian Peterson expects warm welcome from Minnesota Vikings fans

Adrian Peterson expects warm welcome from Minnesota Vikings fans”

If the Vikings defense is able to step up and contain the high-powered Saints offense, then this matchup will be a very close one.

"But now it's a must", Vikings cornerback Xavier Rhodes said.

Now slated to return to U.S. Bank Stadium as a member of the New Orleans Saints, former Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson still expects to receive a warm welcome from the hometown crowd on Sunday. "You have that extra adrenaline, whatever you want to call it, if you can stop him so you can talk trash later on that day". The two only overlapped in Minnesota for a brief time when Moss was traded back to the Vikings via New England for a second stint that lasted all of four games during the 2010 season.

Peterson flooded the zone with self-serving details about the severity of his torn meniscus and how he spent 10 grand a week rehabbing, volunteering his innocence when nobody asked if he was guilty of preserving his career at the expense of the Vikings' fading playoff hopes.

How would you like to see fans greet Peterson on Monday?

"No, I didn't leave anything on the table", Peterson continued. I want to stick it to everyone we play.

Monday Night Football will be broadcasted on ESPN throughout the season, and in Week 1, we will be treated to a doubleheader.

The Vikings' wide receivers are quite eager to end the team's receiving yard drought in 2017. He won three NFL rushing titles and claimed the franchise's third NFL MVP award. However, an unceremonious end for No. 28 included 28 missed games to suspension and injury in his last three seasons.

National Football League on FOX sideline reporter Jen Hale shares three things fantasy players need to know about Monday's Saints at Minnesota Vikings matchup in Minneapolis at 6:10 p.m.

Now that Peterson is finding himself in New Orleans, his new audience is looking for some of that same star power that defined his illustrious career in Minnesota.

"For me, it's going back to Minnesota". Some of you may be wondering about Minnesota's rookie running back Dalvin Cook out of Florida State?

The New Orleans Saints will look to kick this season off on the right foot after finishing the preseason with a 2-2 record after falling to the Ravens, 14-13, in their preseason finale. The additions of Adrian Peterson, Alvin Kamara and Ted Ginn Jr. countered with the loss of Brandin Cooks make it almost impossible to foresee how this unit will perform.

Prediction: the Saints will have a narrow victory over the Vikings, 27-23.

While Peterson wouldn't mind beating his former team in the regular-season opener on Monday night, his wrath isn't limited to just the Vikings.

Defensively, the Vikings will need to absorb the fury that Peterson is sure to bring early on. While the focus may be on Peterson, there's a new guy in town named Alvin Kamara.

"I had no reason not to believe in her, I was introduced to her by the fella who was running the meeting and had dealt with him before and had some success", Tony Faust of Prior Lake told Fox 9. The Vikings are also honoring legendary receiver Randy Moss in the Ring of Honor during a nationally televised game.

"It's going to be insane", Cook said. "(Peterson) did a lot for this organization. "We've played against each other before so I don't know that there is an advantage either way". "I don't know that there's grudges held, but I think it would be inhuman not to have a desire to play well against your former team".
