ESPN has the Vikings at No. 3 in its power rankings through the first wave of free agency heading into 2018, behind only the Eagles and Patriots. That seems about right. To rise above either Super Bowl team, the Vikings need to prove it on the field.


It's Game 1 of 162 for the Twins. They all count the same in the standings, but there's nothing quite like Opening Day. Twins at Orioles, 2 p.m., FSN.


"For many fans in the 1960s, the best part of a Twins game was a rain delay. That's because Halsey Hall filled the time with stories of baseball from an earlier era and of the colorful characters who had played for the Minneapolis Millers and St. Paul Saints."

"I'm so proud of Bob Motzko and so happy to be a Husky for life. I wish him the best, but selfishly am very saddened to have him leave the program. He bleeds husky Red. Make us proud Bob."
