Saints-Vikings to kick off MNF on Sept. 11

Sam Bradford and the Vikings will host Drew Brees and the Saints to kick off the 2017 slate of Monday Night Football on Sept. 11. The nightcap will feature the Chargers at the Broncos.

The Vikings will open the season on Monday Night Football at home against the New Orleans Saints, sources told ESPN's Mike Triplett and me. It would be the second time in three years the Vikings have opened the season on Monday night, in a matchup with plenty of subplots. The Vikings last played the Saints in 2014, when Teddy Bridgewater got the first action of his career. Mention of the Saints still draws the ire of Vikings fans after the infamous 2009 NFC title game, and the Saints were the most recent team to bring Adrian Peterson in for a visit.

There have been few linebackers more consistent over the last decade than A.J. Hawk and Stephen Tulloch, both of whom announced their plans to retire on Tuesday. The equally reliable Chad Greenway announced his own retirement in March.

The Vikings will open U.S. Bank Stadium to fans of all ages on Saturday for their annual DraftFest, which will feature appearances from Everson Griffen, Stefon Diggs, Isaac Fruechte, Kentrell Brothers and David Morgan, among others. The team, which has five picks on the third day of the draft, will announce its selections live at the event. Vikings radio play-by-play man Paul Allen will host a live broadcast during the event, which will also include live music and interactive events. Kids under 12 are free; season ticket-holders can purchase tickets for $10 by accessing their team account through a mobile device, or for $15 by accessing it over the web. The event is $20 for non season ticket-holders.
