Will this contest between NFC North rivals be the first competitive Thursday night game of the season?
Minnesota Vikings Ban Running Back Adrian Peterson From All Team Activities While He Addresses Child Abuse Charges
This comes after the team faced heavy criticism for reinstating their star running back on Monday.
The Oakland Raiders are 0-2 with no relief in sight, as they travel to New England to take on the Patriots in Week Three. That’s not the remedy for what ails the Silver & Black, of course, so it could be an ugly week for the team. Be prepared, Oakland fans, for a disastrous road trip.
