The Tennessean-USA TODAY Sports
Merry Tuesday, everyone! It's the second day of the second week of the 2016 NFL season. We have a tough game coming up on Sunday, as the Vikings face the Packers in the first regular season game at U.S. Bank Stadium.


Around the DN since our last open thread:

Vikings news from other sources:


Yahoo Sports looks at why Laquon Treadwell didn't play a snap on Sunday.

From Vikings.com:

Craig Peters posted his After Further Review segment.

Eric Smith looks at the Vikings-Packers match-up.



Around the NFL:


Hue Jackson said the Browns won't trade for a quarterback, per NFL.com. I think you only do that when you have a shot at the playoffs.



Twins update:

Dozier hit number 40 and Santana pitched well, but it wasn't enough as the Twins fell to the Tigers, 2-4.


We come to today's media selection. Here's a great highlight film from the 1975 Vikings season.


Again, we all know the rules, but in case someone is new:

-No discussion of politics or religion
-No feeding of the trolls
-Keep the bad language to a minimum (using the spoiler tags, if you must)
-Speaking of which, if discussing a newer show or movie, please use spoiler tags
-No pictures that could potentially get someone fired or in serious trouble at their place of employment
-If you can't disagree in a civil manner, feel free to go away
-While navigating the open thread, just assume it's sarcasm
-This isn't a male version of The View, so leave the gender hatred at the door

With that, the beer light is on and the bar is open. Belly up & tie one on. Don't forget to tip your waitress, & try the blood sausage.
