The New Orleans Saints open the season against the Minnesota Vikings at U.S. Bank Stadium in the first of a Monday Night Football doubleheader.

It marks the return of longtime Vikings running back Adrian Peterson to Minnesota.  He signed with the Saints as a free agent after spending his first 10 seasons with Minnesota.

The Saints started 0-and-3 last year on their way to finishing third in the NFC South at 7-and-9.  The Vikings started 5-and-0 last season before losing eight of their final 11 games to finish third in the NFC North at 8-and-8.

With quarterback Teddy Bridgewater still recovering from a knee injury from last preseason, Sam Bradford is back under center for Minnesota.  He threw for nearly 39-hundred yards, 20 touchdowns and just five interceptions last season.
