Mike Zimmer insists Vikings focused on beating Saints, not ‘Adrian Peterson Jersey’

Adrian Peterson’s return to Minnesota to face his former team is rich in entertainment value, spectacle and hype.

That bodes well for a week’s worth of storylines for broadcast crews, media and fans.

But apparently not so much for the teams playing in that prime-time matchup next Monday.

At first it seemed the Lions wouldn’t be wearing it in 2017 (which would be just as well — it’s a stinker) because they aren’t scheduled for a Thursday night game this season. But it turns out that they’ll wear it for a Saturday afternoon game Dec. 16 against the Bears.
