Minnesota Vikings (0-0)
New Orleans Saints (0-0)
Drew Brees and Kirk Cousins are not long for this preseason opener, but the creativity of Saints head coach Sean Payton typically makes for an entertaining watch even in early August.
Do-everything utility man Taysom Hill could get some run at quarterback for the Saints, but former Viking Teddy Bridgewater will be the most prominent passer early in the game. New Orleans is incorporating a few new pieces defensively and neither coaching staff will call off the dogs when it comes to rushing the passer.
That will be a good test for the Vikings, who are hoping a fortified offensive line can be the anchor for their new-look offense. Backup QBs Sean Mannion and Kyle Sloter figure to log the majority of the snaps.
