NFC Divisional Playoff New Orleans Saints at Minnesota Vikings: Preview and Prediction

2018 NFL Playoffs: History says Vikings are team most likely to suffer a heartbreaker

Bradford, who completed 27 of his 32 passes for 346 yards and three touchdowns in the Vikings' season-opening win over New Orleans, twisted his left knee in the game, and missed the team's next three games before making a truncated return on October 9 against the Bears.

The Saints look to build on their home win last weekend against the Carolina Panthers and keep their Super Bowl aspirations alive as they take to the road to battle the defensively stout Minnesota Vikings in a contrast of styles that should make for a very exciting game. Turnovers are magnified in the postseason, so Keenum needs to take care of the football against a Saints defense that had 20 interceptions in the regular season.

The Minnesota Vikings are the talk of the rust belt as they begin their path to potentially being the first team to ever host a Super Bowl.

Maybe, that fact is better for the Saints, who came up short in a 29-19 loss, than it is for the Vikings.

The Minnesota offense has flourished under the leadership of quarterback Case Keenum, who has formed a solid rapport with offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur and his teammates en route to throwing 22 touchdown pass and completing over 67 percent of his attempts. The Vikings haven't had three quarterbacks active for a game since November 7, 2013 against Washington, when Leslie Frazier was the coach the year before Mike Zimmer arrived.

The Minnesota Vikings face the New Orleans Saints this Sunday in week 1 rematch where the Vikings handled the Saints easily.

Alvin Kamara and Mark Iingram have been the NFL's most dynamic rushing duo this season. We had read - or in some cases, written - that story countless times before.

WHO PUBLIC BETTORS LIKE: New Orleans. When Bridgewater finally made it back during this season it was a great story.

The Vikings activated Bradford from injured reserve on Saturday, so Teddy Bridgewater will move to third on the depth chart.

The Vikings have a fine team and are favored to at least reach the big game, now that our guy Carson Wentz of the Philadelphia Eagles is out for the year with a knee injury and backup Nick Foles is not exactly North Dakota Tough.

The two teams previously met in the season-opener on September 11, with the Vikings earning a 29-29 win. "He's working in, but he's got a way to go still".
