Vikings: Cook upstages Peterson as Minnesota turns the page

While Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer has held that job since 2014, he was previously the defensive coordinator of the Bengals for six seasons from 2008-2013. Ben Roethlisberger is much better at home than he is on the road. That's what we talked about this morning.

Instead, the Vikings produced about as complete of a victory as you could get and demonstrated that they are just fine without the franchise's all-time leading rusher. They don't do as much double barrel.

"Let's be clear... I said we need to run the ball up their Donkey", Peterson tweeted. There's no conflict. I got a lot of respect for coach Payton and his offense.

"If I'm chest to chest on my man, that extra split second might be able to get us another sack", Klein said. Three-four outfit, that group upfront provides the wave or disruption that the rest of group rides. Bradford is dealing with a knee injury that also didn't prevent him from playing every snap against the Saints. We'll have our hands full there. Riley Reiff and Nick Easton shined in particular, making up for a few mistakes in the run game by pitching shutouts in the pass.

Tomlin went on to give more detail about the Vikings defense the Steelers offense will face on Sunday and made sure to clarify that while there is some familiarity with that unit, that it still will be a big challenge just the same. But the running back who was most under utilized was Mark Ingram. "Harrison Smith is a unsafe guy, much like Reggie Nelson was a risky guy when he played for Coach Zimmer in Cincinnati and they employed Harrison the same ways, and similar ways as they employed Reggie Nelson in Cincinnati". They're going to get to work. So we don't know how well the line really played or how effective the passing offense really is. They opened plenty of holes for rookie running back Dalvin Cook, who ran for 127 yards, and they allowed just one sack of quarterback Sam Bradford, who was throwing the ball all over the field. "So, for me it's just tightening up my coverage. They went out and showed the world what they're capable of doing". There are some matchup issues you are always concerned about.

After getting the first two carries of the game, for last year's number one National Football League offense, Peterson went silent.

"But there are enough things that we've got to clean up that we've got to see this before we get on (to New England). They reflect all of those concerns in their play and in their tape". For the early portion of the game, the penalties hurt in the first series.

"They probably have a bigger edge".

The Houston Texans may be without five players for Thursday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals because they are in the concussion protocol.

A lot of thoughts raced through my mind Monday night while watching the Minnesota Vikings dismantle the New Orleans Saints on a national stage at U.S. Bank Stadium in downtown Minneapolis.

Bradford threw for 346 yards and three touchdowns, and wide receiver Stefon Diggs scored two touchdown receptions in the first half.
