New Orleans Saints vs. Minnesota Vikings

  • When: September 11, 2017, 7:10 PM ET
  • Where: U.S. Bank Stadium
  • Spread: Vikings -3.5
  • Over/Under: 48
  • Moneyline: Vikings -165 vs Saints +145

The New Orleans Saints are coming off a 7-9 season and are hoping to make it to the playoffs this year.

The team added former Vikings running back Adrian Peterson during the offseason, and are hoping he can help improve their running game, so quarterback Drew Brees doesn’t have to do everything himself.

The Saints passing attack will miss Brandin Cooks, who was traded to the New England Patriots in the offseason, but Brees is confident he has enough weapons to make the loss of Cooks sting a little less.

Peterson was hoping to stay with the Vikings, but was released by the team, which means he will be out to prove his former team wrong, so expect a big game from the future Hall of Famer.

However, playing on the road and in Minnesota does not favor the Saints at all. Minnesota’s crowd is rough and hostile (the Saints are 3-12 all-time in Minnesota and this is their first trip to U.S. Bank Stadium) and the Vikings’ defense is one of the toughest in the league that can put a hamper on Brees.

The Vikings looked like one of the better teams in the league early in the 2016 season, but faltered down the stretch and finished 8-8.

Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater missed the entire season because of a knee injury, so the Vikings traded for Sam Bradford, who did a decent job replacing the young quarterback.

With Bridgewater still not fully recovered, Bradford will once again start for the Vikings this season.

Minnesota also has a new offensive weapon in former Florida State running back Dalvin Cook. The speedster was drafted to replace Peterson, and from the little we saw of him in the preseason, he looks more than capable of stepping into the starting running back role.

Minnesota’s offense is still lacking in firepower, but against a Saints defense that for all intents and purposes sucked last year, they should be OK.

Now, the Saints did improve their defense during the offseason but Cook should balance things out, and, so should Latavius Murray for that matter which should give fans more confidence in their team.

Los Angeles Chargers vs Denver Broncos

  • When: September 11, 2017, 10:20 PM ET
  • Where: Sports Authority Field at Mile High
  • Spread: Broncos -3.5
  • Over/Under: 43
  • Moneyline: Broncos -165 vs Chargers +145

The Chargers may have moved to Los Angeles in the offseason, but they are still bitter rivals with the Broncos, so expect to see a very competitive game.

The Chargers were a disappointing 5-11 last season, but are expected to be much better this year with a healthy Kennan Allen back and Antonio Gates back in the lineup.

Running back Melvin Gordon had a breakout season last year after a disappointing rookie campaign, so expect to see big things from him this year.

With Phillip Rivers under center, the Chargers usually have a chance, especially against division rivals.

The Broncos also had a disappointing season last year, finishing 9-7 a season after winning the Super Bowl.

Their quarterback play was one of the reasons they didn’t make the playoffs, but after gaining experience last season, their quarterbacks should play much better this year.

But, it is somewhat surprising that John Elway did not go out to find a good quarterback which is why I believe this Broncos team won’t win more than seven games this season.

With Paxton Lynch suffering an injury during the preseason, the Broncos brought back Brock Osweiller, who was released by the Cleveland Browns, to serve as their backup.

Denver announced that Trevor Siemian will be their starting quarterback in this game. Siemian isn’t the most effective quarterback in the NFL, but he has been able to put together some good performances here and there. I’m just not confident that he’ll be able to pull one off against the Chargers on Monday night.

Also, it doesn’t bode well for Denver that LA has one of the most dangerous pass rushers in the NFL in Joey Bosa. If the offensive line isn’t able to stop the pass rush, it’s going to be a long night for Siemian.

Denver’s defense is once again expected to be one of the best in the league this year, and if they can get pressure on Rivers, it will be a long night for the Chargers.

Historically, the Broncos have done well against the Chargers; but, they always seems to struggle against this team, especially with Phillip Rivers under center.
