MINNEAPOLIS (AP)—Opening night can’t get here fast enough for the New Orleans Saints and Minnesota Vikings.

Sharper touched things off after Favre announced he was having ankle surgery last week. The talkative safety tweeted “X marks the spot” in reference to the quarterback’s ankle. The comment touched a nerve with the Vikings, who believe the Saints took several late hits on their 40-year-old quarterback in New Orleans’ overtime victory over Minnesota in the NFC title game in January.
