You mean when Persia, led by Darius at QB, beat Greece at their home stadium in Athens? Yes, I remember that well, along with the long awaited rematch a couple years later. The Greeks got revenge in that next game, after Persia replaced Darius at QB, with a touted rookie named Xerxes. Xerxes looked like he would defeat Greece again after building a huge lead, but Greece's all pro QB, Themistocles, led a fierce offensive barrage late in the game, while their defense led by the famous Spartan LB, Leonidas, sealed Greece's victory by holding Persia scoreless the rest of the game. The Oracle of Delphi had made the Persians 3 point favorites prior to the game, but some last minute changes in strategy upon the oracle's suggestion, ended up giving the advantage to Themistocles and his Greece teammates.
Darius was VERY overrated. He had that one good game.

Those tickets must have been hard to get.

It's probably a lock for us if someone like Adam Thielen gets called for a dumb personal foul in the first quarter turning a 3rd and 1 drive into a momentum crushing 3rd and 16. But we might not get one of those every week.

What I saw last week was a defense with the chip on its shoulder. I think the offense can be gimmick any given Sunday, but I think the defense will be the heart an soul of this team (at least the first half of the season- if the offense sputters and loses ball games, historically our defense will quit). I think VJ is a professional coach- especially given the fact he has been around this league, and he knows how quick he can be relegated to D2 ball; I think he (and his staff) will bring the A game. Coach bro will likely get an NFL OC Job if this season doesn't pan out.

All my spectator opinions aside, I think last weeks momentum carry's into week 2 and the Cardinals win by at least 2 possessions.

Not to mention that defense Leonidas
was leading was seriously out numbered . The game really changed when they limited the number of players on the field

Yes, vikes run the ball control the clock and turnover could do it.

Of course Vikes can win.
They have a competent qb, arguably the most dangerous RB in the game, and absolute studs at WR. They have the weapons for sure to win the game. Add to that a very respectable coach and the Cards better bring it. Heck the Jags could beat us week 3.

Now with all that said, if Cards play to their potential, we’ll be 2-0.
