Minnesota will take on the New Orleans Saints on Sunday afternoon in what will likely be the best game of the divisional playoffs.
Minnesota has the defense as well as the offense to finish this game. And the team's suffocating defense, tops in the league in yards allowed per game and nearly the best in every other category, lived up to its own high standards to have Minnesota favored for a trip to the NFC Championship.
Although the Vikings (13-3) are still in the hunt for the Super Bowl this season and will meet the Saints again in a divisional playoff game Sunday at the "ChurroDome", fans vow they are content to enjoy the experience and to live with the fact that, if the Vikings lose, it will be because the other team was better. We found out who we are and we're going to go there with confidence and a swagger and just play the ball we know how to play. Not only do the Vikings appear to have a team capable of winning their first Super Bowl, 51 years and counting, they can do so by exacting sweet revenge when it really means something.
Minnesota has built an all-world defense, which number one overall, only allowing 275.9 yards per game, but also only 15.8 points per game. "We are definitley looking forward to playing those guys".
The Saints went 11-5 and won their opening round playoff game over Carolina.
Pat Shurmur wanted: The Vikings' offensive coordinator is in high demand for head coaching vacancies this year. He had a sack and two tackles in his first game against the Vikings this season.
"Probably as some assistant in Kansas City, or something", he said, breaking into the hearty laugh for which he's been known during his time as Minnesota's "Garrulous Governor Chilly". Lattimore has five interceptions on the season and feels much more confident than he did when he faced the Vikings in the season opener.
"You'd be a fool to think Drew Brees is flying under the radar", defensive tackle Tom Johnson said. The Saints used their potent rushing attack featuring Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara during the regular season. The duo became the first pair of running backs in National Football League history to both top 1,500 yards from scrimmage.
"I've been a fan of his for a long time", Keenum said. This defense is just plain tough to move the ball on.
Minnesota coach Mike Zimmer says he hasn't made a decision regarding the status of quarterback Sam Bradford, who has practiced the last two weeks in an attempt to be activated from the injured reserve list. They've been mixing him in and getting him some reps here and there.
