New Orleans Saints vs Minnesota Vikings

New Orleans Saints vs Minnesota Vikings

On Sunday, the elder Jordan will be in the U.S. Bank Stadium crowd for the playoff game between the Vikings and the New Orleans Saints.

The Eagles haven't played either the Vikings or the Saints this season. Sam Bradford was Minnesota's signal-caller that day, and he connected early and often with wideouts Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen, who torched the Saints secondary. It's not very often that you see a playoff team's spark plugs both be rookies, Marshawn Lattimore is that for the defense meanwhile Alvin Kamara really gets the offense going.

The Elo ratings are subjective in some cases, and the Tribune acknowledged that most of the Vikings' unexpected elimination games came decades ago.

Australia 199 for 4 after 36 overs. "Some innings you hit them straight to fielders, some innings you don't". I've played a lot against those guys in the Champions Trophy, in series in England and here, too.

They'll face off again on Sunday with an NFC Championship berth on the line. Over the course of the season, the Vikings held opposing running backs to the fewest scrimmage yards in the NFL. Prediction: Vikings 23, Saints 20. This game features two teams that are so similar in the way they win football games, It will truly be a survival of the fittest.

The Saints went 11-5 and won their opening round playoff game over Carolina. The Vikings have never dressed more than two quarterbacks during Mike Zimmer's tenure as head coach.

We love how the one kid corrects the other on Teddy Bridgewater being back, noting that he's "still not playing". They ranked first in yards per play, second in passing defense, second in rushing defense and they were first in third-down conversion percentage. It will be hard for them to contain everybody, and the guess here is that Rudolph and McKinnon are the ones who take advantage.
