Alex Smith, Sam Bradford make Week One history

MNF Vikings cruise past Saints Broncos block late FG top Chargers 24-21 in Joseph’s debut

Sam Bradford picked up the honor Wednesday, Sept. 13, for his lights-out performance in Monday night's 29-19 season-opening victory over New Orleans at U.S. Bank Stadium.

"We didn't do anything different or try to out-trick them", Vikings linebacker Anthony Barr said. Hugh says as a former defensive player, that's exactly how you want to win a game.

Bradford's Week 1 performance leads many to wonder whether he finally can reach expectations that have been heaped upon him. Bradford was listed with a knee issue. "I think (offensive coordinator) Pat (Shurmur) called a good game". "You have one quarter of play, so tonight it was great to play 60 minutes and really show what we can do as an offense". Bradford's 2013 season ended after seven games due to a torn ACL, and another ACL injury in the 2014 preseason sidelined him for the entire season. This week, he and the offensive line face a Steelers defense that was stingy against the run in Cleveland last week, allowing only 2.0 yards per carry to Browns running backs.

In a way, he had one of the biggest nights in Minnesota Vikings history: His 127 yards was a team record for a running back making his debut. Bradford showed what he could do with that kind of help.

New Jersey household incomes up a strong 4 percent in 2016
Again , with wage growth relatively weak, rising employment was primarily responsible for such a large jump in household income. With that caveat in mind, Americans appear to be making only slightly more than they were in 1999, when income last peaked.

"I hope Sam has games like this for 16 weeks", Zimmer said. "There's a reason why he was drafted No. 1 overall, and a reason he had the success he had in college".

Sam Bradford has been named one of the Minnesota Vikings' captains, an obviously natural selection as the quarterback.

Bradford set a Vikings record for highest completion percentage in a season opener at 84.4%, and is only the 3rd Vikings QB to pass for more than 300 yards in a season opener.

Bradford, who was selected by the league as the NFC Offensive Player of the Week, posted a career-best passer rating (143.0) with 346 yards on 27-for-32 passing and no turnovers against the Saints.

ECP issues bailable arrest warrants for Imran Khan in contempt case
The counsel for Imran Khan, Babar Awan , argued that the PTI chief was overseas and had returned to the country just an hour ago. The ECP had issued the contempt notice to Khan on January 24 over his "scandalous remarks" about the commission.

This year, though, Bradford is much more at ease.

"They took a chance on me, bringing me into this organization", Cook said.

"Having been here for a year with our guys and just building those relationships, I think it makes it easier to be more vocal", he said. "I think we put pressure on them".

Pakistan heralds worldwide cricket return with win
Azam added 122 for the second wicket with Ahmed Shehzad (39) as Pakistan built on the loss of opener Fakhar Zaman for eight. Du Plessis said it would be a "quick turnaround, I don't think I've ever played two T20s in two days".
