Tailgating Lots Closed For Vikings Vs. Saints

Share

The Saints had won the last three meetings, including the last one in Minneapolis (42-20 in 2011).

To call Sunday's NFC Divisional Playoff game between the New Orleans Saints and the Minnesota Vikings a rematch is a bit misleading.

It's possible, perhaps even likely, the Vikings won't come calling on Sunday for the quarterback who was tantalizingly close to leading them to victory the last time they were in this situation.

The Vikings have shuffled the deck at times on the offensive line this season, and more moving and shaking could be on the horizon for Sunday's playoff game against the Saints. The Saints are +7 for the season, the Vikings are +5. "All my friends and family who have come up from Texas and my friends from other teams that come in, they'll text me after the games and they'll be like, 'Dude, that place is ridiculous.' It really is". Kaepernick continued his protest throughout the 2016 season, but has not suited-up for another National Football League team since walking away from his contract in San Francisco at the end of that year.

As long as Drew Brees is quarterback, the Saints are going to be known for their offense.

The Panthers were focused on stopping the running game last week in the Wild Card round matchup. Case Keenum and company have been excellent at protecting the football this season, and it is a significant factor in the Vikings' success. Keenum is a veteran of missed opportunities, including going undrafted after a record college career, then serving as a disposable place-holder, or worse, with the Houston Texans (twice) and Los Angeles Rams. The Vikings have a ton of talent in their back-four.

With the Lions, Cardinals, Giants and Colts yet to hire a head coach, Fangio appears to be waiting patiently to see what's next. Helfrich will not be calling plays initially, but he will inherit a second-year quarterback in Mitchell Trubisky.

"He's getting hit and they're throwing the kitchen sink at him with blitzes and he's moving and making some phenomenal throws down the field that were either close to being caught or nearly caught", he said.

"Some guys have that innate sense to get out of the pocket and either get forward for 6 or 7 [yards], make it second-and-3 or get outside the pocket and find somebody down the field", Kingsbury said. "I think there's just kind of that mentality of having the chip on your shoulder, always being told you couldn't do it for whatever reason, height whatever". "We played for [the Floyd of Rosedale] trophy, and we were always given their best shot".

The article, titled "How the Saints Defense Tipped the Scales", noted that the Saints gave up 158 fewer points this season compared to a year ago, with 12 more interceptions and 12 more sacks. One area in which that's benefited Minnesota most is on third down.

There is no denying how good Mike Zimmer has this defense playing.

The Vikings defense can make things much easier on Case Keenum and company.
