Saints vs. Vikings: Highlights, game tracker from Divisional Round

How Rams paved the way for Keenum Foles NFC Championship matchup

How Rams paved the way for Keenum Foles NFC Championship matchup

While he isn't one of the league's premiere talents at the position, Keenum has still been incredibly proficient under center for the Vikings this season. "I can't even remember what is was", Berniard said. They became the first duo in National Football League history each gain at least 1,500 yards from scrimmage. Drew Brees and the Saints offense can still put up points in bunches, and might be the rare team to have some favorable matchups against the Minnesota defense.

The New Orleans Saints defense has grown and grown all season long. Do you know why?

Here we are 125 days later, and the Vikings and Saints are set to meet in Minnesota yet again.

Fate, in fact, may be conspiring in the Vikings' favor for the playoffs, too.

- Quarterback Nick Foles wasn't given much of a chance to carry the weight of the Eagles' playoff hopes as the replacement for Carson Wentz. But Smith is a modern-day Darren Woodson for the Vikings with range to cover the deep third of the field and enough size and speed to come up as a fourth linebacker to stuff the run.

After failing to practice all week because of a neck injury, New Orleans Saints wide receiver Brandon Coleman was declared out on Friday for Sunday's divisional-round game against the Minnesota Vikings.

I'm not buying it, frankly. He is asking for them to be louder than they have ever been at U.S. Bank Stadium.

The Minnesota Vikings are also improved so we will see about that. He has simply performed well above what the team had expected after Bradford was sidelined with a knee injury following his impressive Week 1 outing.

And Saints rookie running back Alvin Kamara, likely the Offensive Rookie of the Year, had more than 1,500 yards from scrimmage after picking up just 38 total yards against the Vikings.

They say you should never let a fleeting hullabaloo divert you from the enduring issues of debate.

Still, nothing is certain in the NFL.

If the Vikings advance to the Super Bowl, they would be the.

As noted before, Christian McCaffrey found success against the Saints in the playoffs, so the Vikings should rip a page out of the Panthers' playbook and feature McKinnon often.

But (and millions of other Vikes fans can probably agree) it wouldn't be particularly surprising.
