Vikings win US Bank Stadium opener, lose Peterson

Maybe once Peterson's knee situation is revealed we can know more about how we can define the NFC North at this point.

When talking about Adrian Peterson's right knee on Monday, Vikings coach Mike Zimmer didn't sound fatalistic. But whether it is Peterson or backup running backs Matt Asiata or Jerick McKinnon taking handoffs from Bradford, the results will be the same if the holes aren't there. "Just part of the medical; we'll have that for you Wednesday". According to Vikings guard Alex Boone, Bradford proved to be a "beast" by quickly recovering from a hard hit to make a flawless pass on the play that followed the hit.

Bradford has never produced a winning season much less taken a team to the playoffs.

- Rodgers targeted Nelson a team-high 11 times, and the pair connected on five plays for 73 yards.

It nearly seemed Sunday night that McCarthy and Rodgers were trying to open up the run game with long passes instead of the other way around.

The Packers may eventually figure things out, but we can't just write the offense's stagnation off as nothing more than a two-week dip.

Peterson, who led the National Football League in rushing last season, has managed just 50 yards on 31 carries through the first two games.

"We're going through the evaluation process", he added.

Carolina Panthers' Ron Rivera: Officials not giving Cam Newton star treatment
This isn't the first time Rivera has faced questions about the way Newton was handled after taking a hard hit to the head. The coach would like to see Newton, now in his sixth season, get some "veteran favoritism" from the league's officials.

Afterward, Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said he wanted Bradford to play in a 25-16 win at Tennessee in the September 11 opener, but because he hadn't yet mastered the offense after being acquired on September 3, Shaun Hill went the distance. Eddie Lacy was a non-factor rushing for just 50 yards as the Vikings' run defense was solid again, holding the Packers to 83 rushing yards overall on the night.

Peterson managed just 19 yards on 12 carries and found little room to run before leaving in the third quarter with his injured right knee. "This is a tough opponent, a division opponent and they are a good football team that still needs to come play at our house later in the season". Last Wednesday, Packers coach Mike McCarthy said he expected Bradford to start, and it was reported he took all of the first-team snaps that day during practice. Robison said the Vikings success on the play started with the call by Zimmer and credited his teammates.

Bradford was dramatically ordinary for most of the 2015 season and did not put together a consistent string of good performances until after the Eagles had been eliminated from the playoffs.

"Obviously, when you see a guy go down like that any time, obviously your heart goes out to him and his family".
