With the Green Bay Packers regular season home opener just around the corner, concessionaires at Lambeau Field want to make sure fans know about some new offerings. The Packers and Delaware North Companies Sportservice say some of the new sandwiches this season include the 22-inch horseshoe-shaped smoked sausage in a house-made bun.
The New England Patriots let Knowshon Moreno run for 134 yards in their season opener. Now they must face Adrian Peterson. Scary? “You know what? I love it,” defensive tackle Sealver Siliga said Wednesday. “This is going to be a good test and I think our team’s real excited.”
Tom Brady and Matt Cassel have been close friends for going on 10 years now. When the Patriots visit Minnesota on Sunday, the two quarterbacks will face each other on the field for the first time.

They are two of the biggest playmakers the Minnesota Vikings have in their offense, and they also happen to be two of the biggest playmakers in the NFL.

Solomon Wilcots may have had one season in the black and yellow, but he’s an expert on all things football and he took the time to weigh in on this Thursday’s match-up between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Baltimore Ravens. Amid numerous controversial stories, there is still football to be played and games to be won. Week two starts with the Ravens and Steelers in an AFC North divisional match-up.
The Minnesota Vikings are still trying to turn the national perception of the team, but head coach Mike Zimmer doesn’t care. He only cares about what the team can control.
