We illustrated why he should have been the first running back drafted, yet Cook slid to the second round for whatever inexplicable reason you want to name. "He is a great player". Miller has the ability to throw any offense off by himself and even if the Chargers' Offensive Line can contain him, they will need to deal with Shaquil Barrett and Derek Wolfe respectively.
Those who believed that Peterson's offseason relocation from the Minnesota Vikings to the New Orleans Saints would move the needle significantly and shift the competitive balance of power in the NFC were not being realistic. The Saints still have versatile lineman Senio Kelemente to fill in for Strief, and he's actually not that bad in pass protection. Also, Peterson's nine snaps played in the Vikings game was the fewest in his illustrious career so far. He earned his first 1,000-yard rushing season past year, totaling 1,362 yards from scrimmage and 10 touchdowns. Neither was the case Monday night, as New Orleans ran the ball 21 times for just 60 yards (2.9 yards per carry).
Payton also denied that there was any sort of heated exchange. "So, at the end of the day, we just got to figure out how we can just do better".
The former number one overall pick was 27-of-32 passing for 346 yards and three touchdowns as the Vikings spoiled Adrian Peterson's return to Minnesota. Diggs did the same to the Saints on his 18-yard touchdown, and he celebrated accordingly.
A year ago, Bradford ranked 25th in the league in passes of at least 25 yards downfield. A late touchdown closed the gap and ended a 0-of-3 start in the red zone. New Orleans finished with 344 yards of offense. "I thought, a lot of the things that we did it was easy for them to communicate those things". Most of those yards came in the second half, as Minnesota worked to protect its lead and kill the clock.
