Stefon Diggs pays homage to Randy Moss with TD celebration

Rookie Dalvin Cook totaled 137 yards while Adam Thielen led the Vikes in receiving with 9 catches for 157 yards.

Sam Bradford played the best game of his 16-game Vikings career, going 27-of-32 for 346 yards with three touchdowns and a 143.0 passer rating.

Monday, Diggs got his season off to a strong start. He completed passes to seven different receivers.

"It was awful", tight end Kyle Rudolph said with a laugh.

"I feel like everybody was feeding off each other's energy", Diggs said.

In his return to Minnesota to face the team he played with for 10 seasons, Adrian Peterson didn't achieve his ultimate goal of "walking away with a W". The line was doing a great job, Sam was slinging it around.

He said Pakistan needed more collaboration between the two countries in various areas rather than aid and assistance. He added that Pakistan was a huge market and the U.S. companies had multi-billion opportunities here.

"That man gave me an opportunity to be here in front of you guys", Moss said of Green.

After Further Review is a deeper look at plays or stats after Vikings games... "It is what it is". New Orleans finished with 344 yards of offense - just 113 yards through the first 45 minutes of the game - and was 4 of 11 on third downs. "I felt like when we got into the second half, we were having trouble stopping much of anything". For the most part, though, it was a tame start to the new campaign. Diggs mimicked Moss' "splitting the defense" celebration upon catching an 18-yard touchdown after the Saints bit on a play-action fake.

The group - with Boone still with the No. 1 offensive line - struggled in the preseason but came together in the opener with little time to work together in practices. "I'm on to the next play". And when they play like that, it makes my job easy. We were getting out of the huddle. "I think we've all been impressed with him since he showed up. Legs are very delicate - injuries happen".

Diggs' tribute was inspired by Moss' induction into the Vikings' Ring of Honor on Monday.
