Smallwood: Nothing personal, but Eagles prefer Sam Bradford to fail

Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson is helped to the locker room in the third quarter of Sunday night's game after suffering a knee injury against the Green Bay Packers.

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

Vikings quarterback Sam Bradford attempts a pass downfield during the third quarter of the September 18 home opener against the Green Bay Packers. Stewart owners are going to have to decide whether to add Fozzy Whitaker (who had 131 total yards filling in for Stewart) or Cameron Artis-Payne (who has been a healthy scratch the past two weeks, but more neatly fits the "lead back" profile).

"Obviously, when you see a guy go down like that any time, obviously your heart goes out to him and his family". Matthews returned to the game after missing one play and remained on the field for the majority of the game.

You would think that the architects of the Minnesota Vikings' brand-new, billion-dollar stadium would have considered every possibility while designing it. Cam Newton completed 24 of 40 passes for 353 yards and four touchdowns against one interception. "Our fans are tremendous", says quarterback Sam Bradford.

Not that we think they will be choosing the latter the option.

Henderson thrilled as hot Reds inflict the first defeat on Conte
Dejan Lovren's opener and a brilliant Jordan Henderson strike from range gave the visitors a two-goal lead before half-time. We've had a great week in training so everyone was positive.

A torn ACL would keep Peterson out until next year, and he suffered that exact injury in his left knee towards the end of the 2011 season. After the game, Peterson was on crutches with a brace on his knee.

Coming into the contest, it was the Packers defense that seemed to have the decided advantage over a vulnerable Minnesota offensive line.

Zimmer praised the next men up in the Vikings backfield, Jerick McKinnon and Matt Asiata, and exuded confidence in both of them.

His overall assessment of the team's running game through two weeks? "It's just part of professional football", Zimmer said. 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. Despite the running game being a non-factor for a second straight week, the passing game was able to carry the offense much more effectively this time around. We got pretty good continuity.

Rodgers hopes the Packers' home opener Sunday against the Detroit Lions, another division rival, is the start of getting the offense back in sync.

"We've got to convert first downs". Now the atmosphere here was electric - from outside the stadium five hours before the game, to right here on the turf, the fans were loud, and the players certainly took notice.
