Stefon Diggs turned his game into a giant tribute to Randy Moss

Diggs became the first Vikings player since Randy Moss with two touchdown catches in a season opener and did so on the eve of Moss' induction into the team's Ring of Honor at halftime.

New Orleans lined up with just 10 men on defense on the Vikings' first snap, the product of a miscommunication on the sideline.

The Saints (0-1) kicked field goals on their first four trips to the red zone before Brees connected with tight end Coby Fleener for an 8-yard touchdown with 1:56 left in the game.

Hurricane Irma: Chainsaw-wielding nun helps clear trees in South Florida
Cleaning up areas hit by a storm is a very hazardous task, especially when working with chainsaws. When it comes to neighbors helping neighbors it doesn't get much better than this.

No player in Monday's game took more advantage of the NFL's buttoned down rule change to encourage more personality and celebration after big plays. I think I'd probably be lying if I said I didn't expect that from him tonight.

"There's communication that goes on between base and nickel, and without singling anyone out, look, we didn't get it communicated clearly enough", Payton said.

Minnesota's O-line, which featured new starters at each position, relieved major doubt about a unit that struggled to stay healthy a year ago and was forced to reshuffle constantly. New tackles Riley Reiff and Mike Remmers signed as free agents, center Pat Elflein was selected in the third round of the draft, and Nick Easton took over at left guard after the release of Alex Boone last week.

Tests and opening of the hatches was expected to take about 90 minutes before the capsule can enter the space station. Both Misurkin and Acaba are spaceflight veterans, while this will be the first flight for Vende Hei.

"Those guys up front, they did a great job all week just making sure that they were prepared", Bradford said. We were getting out of the huddle. "Legs are very delicate - injuries happen".

Diggs first had cleats made to honor Moss.

He went on to play eight of his 14 National Football League seasons with the Vikings, finishing behind only Cris Carter on the franchise's all-time record list in receiving yards (9,316), touchdowns (92), and receptions (587). It was an homage to Randy Moss. Thielen did whatever he wanted; the entire Vikings offense did for that matter.

Jose and Katia strengthen into hurricanes
