Drew Brees and company will try to showcase why they are again the team to beat in the NFL, while Brett Favre tries to prove that last year's terrific season with the Vikings was not a fluke. Despite the defensive talent that both teams feature, I'm projecting this game to be a shootout with the home-team Saints coming out on top.
Game: Minnesota Vikings vs. New Orleans Saints
Date/Time: Thursday, September 9, 2010 at 8:30 p.m. EST
