NFL opener: Super Bowl champs Saints vs. Vikings

Lots of good things in the NFL schedule release. But I love this part: “For the first time since the Sunday night game moved to NBC in 2006, the network’s schedule won’t skip a week during the World Series. One of the season’s most intriguing matchups, the Steelers at the Saints on Oct. 31, is poised to go up against Game 4. Major League Baseball chief operating officer Bob DuPuy declined comment.” (Read more about the NFL schedule in the AP report below.)
