Vikings RB Adrian Peterson, on bounties and the NFC title game: “The NFL taught the entire league a lesson”
Much of the focus of the NFL’s bounty investigation has included talk of the 2009 NFC title game featuring the Saints and the Vikings. During that game, QB Brett Favre was repeatedly drilled, and he wound up limping from it. Unveiled yesterday was the NFL’s evidence that had Saints players and others pledging $35,000 to knock out Favre. Yikes. Our own Steve Wyche had a thorough look at all of this. Well today, after the Vikings’ walk-through, I talked with Vikings RB Adrian Peterson, who was on that team. We talked about plenty of things, including his knee, and a lot of our interview aired on NFL Total Access. There will also be an in-depth story on NFL.com Wednesday. But with […]

Happy Monday everybody. What a weekend we just had. “The Avengers” set all sorts of records, and will even get this DC-loving comic enthusiast to see a Marvel movie. Albert Pujols hit his first home run of the season. The Los Angeles Kings swept the Blues (we’re waiting for St. Louis to honor its obligation in a civic bet to send over its football team). And we got our first glimpse of some of the newest NFL stars. There is so much going on, let’s take a look at some of the top fantasy storylines.

Get an exclusive look at the highly anticipated NFL Films documentary centered around one of the NFL’s greatest coaches, Bill Belichick. “A Football Life: Bill Belichick” premieres tonight at 9 p.m. ET on NFL Network.
Buried slightly among all the passing feats of Week 1 is the fact that Saints QB Drew Brees has now thrown at least one TD pass in 28 consecutive games. That puts him two games shy of the third-longest such streak in NFL history, the spot currently held by Hall of Famer Dan Marino. If Brees keeps his streak alive haflway through the season, he’ll reach Brett Favre‘s 36-game streak, which is second-best.
