The Vikings open up their brand new stadium against their fiercest rival tonight!

Greetings, Raider fans. While we're all disappointed about the outcome of today's Raider game, there's yet more football to watch. The Minnesota Vikings are showing off their brand new stadium tonight, and the first game will be against their bitter rival Green Bay Packers.

Sam Bradford will be getting the start for Minnesota after QB Teddy Bridgewater was lost for the season a few weeks ago. Let's see if he can do a better job with the offense than Shaun Hill did against Tennessee- while Minnesota won that game, there were two defensive touchdowns and no offensive ones.

On Green Bay's side, Aaron Rodgers has his full complement of receivers as Jordy Nelson has returned. We'll see how he can do against the ferocious Vikings defense, which will certainly be out for blood in front of a raucous home crowd.

Enjoy tonight's game and stay tuned to Silver & Black Pride for the latest in Oakland Raiders news.
