The Minneapolis Star Tribune wrote about Brock Lesnar’s first game as a Minnesota Viking in the “notebook items” article. It reads:
“Brock Lesnar’s Vikings debut came on a kickoff with 8:45 left in the first half. In a surprise move, the former WWE and Gophers NCAA heavyweight champion lined up to the left of kicker Aaron Elling and ran straight downfield and hit the blocking wedge.
He didn’t break it up, but he helped stop Arizona at the Cardinals’ 28. With 6:26 left in the game, Lesnar made his debut at defensive tackle. The Cardinals drove down the field against Lesnar and the rest of the third team. But the Cardinals were penalized in the red zone for holding Lesnar. Lesnar made a tackle on the next play and the Arizona drive stalled two plays later with a missed field goal attempt. ‘This is all I can ask for, to get a little experience,’ Lesnar said. ‘I’ve been in the league what? Two weeks. I’m just fortunate to have gotten in the game tonight.'”

The main story covering the game also included a line about Lesnar:
“Other than a standing ovation to commemorate Brock Lesnar’s first NFL tackle in the fourth quarter, Saturday night proved a businesslike and positive affair for the home team.”
