An attempt to move to Los Angeles last winter was blocked by the Rams and the NFL.The Vikings were once a candidate to move, but theyre not going anywhere now with light-filled, ship-shaped U.S. Bank Stadium now towering over the east edge of downtown Minneapolis where the Metrodome once stood. After a public open house, an international soccer exhibition and a couple of concerts, from country singer Luke Bryan to hard-rocking Metallica, its finally time for football under the translucent roof.Hopefully we can make this a home, Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said.Running back Adrian Peterson will just be a spectator against the Chargers.The 10th-year veteran, who has not taken a preseason snap since 2011, was given the choice of whether or not to play a few downs but opted not to.I just really thought about it and didnt feel like it was the best thing, Peterson said.An awkward season for the Chargers has started as poorly as possible with the holdout of defensive end Joey Bosa, the third pick in the draft whose representatives have clashed with the front office over seemingly minor structures to his contract.HONEY BADGER IS BACKArizona at Houston, 4:25 p.m.Cardinals all-Pro safety Tyrann Mathieu, who came off the physically unable to perform list last week after finishing his recovery from a torn ACL in his right knee that kept him out of the playoffs last winter, will make his preseason debut with 10 to 12 plays against the Texans.
