Cook totaled 127 yards on 22 carries in the Vikings' win over the Saints on ESPN's Monday Night Football. Ben Roethlisberger is 2-1 lifetime vs. Vikings in 3 career games. That's what we talked about this morning.

Rookie DBs Marcus Williams and Marshon Lattimore got the most work of the young guys, seeing 100% and 94% of the defensive snaps respectively. They don't do as much double barrel. The Steelers beat the Vikings in this game.

"Obviously, Coach Zimmer is their head coach and a lot of things that they do defensively reflect his philosophy approach, whether he's a play caller or not, I know he's been a play caller in the past". "We blitzed well and we were able to rush with our front four pretty well". Three-four outfit, that group upfront provides the wave or disruption that the rest of group rides. While it's not like the 2015 wide receiver class was very good outside of Amari Cooper, this miss is a very Bears miss given how many good players there were for other positions. We'll have our hands full there. Ingram has improved as a pass catcher, blocker, and runner.

The running back wouldn't share what he said, but it doesn't really matter. "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 got deep into Vikings territory, but were held to a field goal. "There's a communication that goes on between base and nickel and without singling anyone out, we didn't get it communicated clear enough and fortunately it didn't end up hurting us on that specific play".

Peterson didn't have many specific details with regards to what he said to Payton but reveals that he merely advised the coach to let them run the ball. Just because we understand it doesn't mean that the task is an easy one.

Distributing the carries in a game can be tough, especially if the backs have shown they could carry the entire load. There are some matchup issues you are always concerned about.

It is not possible for fans of any team to be more gracious and welcoming than New Orleans fans were to their Minnesota counterparts. "They reflect all of those concerns in their play and in their tape".

According to Bovada sports, the Vikings are six-point underdogs to the Steelers in Pittsburgh.

"They probably have a bigger edge".

"They answered the bell coming out of the gate", Cook said.

The Vikings' 29-19 victory over the New Orleans Saints on Monday Night Football wasn't as close as the score suggests.

After using 12 different players among the five spots last season and employed eight unique starting combinations in 16 games, the Vikings splurged in free agency on two new tackles, Riley Reiff and Mike Remmers.

Having said all of that, Peterson downplayed the incident with Payton, even telling reporters in the post-game interview that there was nothing hostile about it, as reported by Josh Katzenstein of NOLA.com.
