nfl opening night

the opening game featured a rematch from the nfc championship game between the minnesota vikingas and the new orleans saints. the saints came out with a 14-9 win in which both teams had opportunities to score and a few turnovers - from what i read anyways. i wish i could have seen the game (damn the work). anyways go saints. sunday kicks of the rest of the games as well as two monday night games. nice way to kick of the season.
