Vikings Fans Gear Up For 1st Playoff Game At US Bank Stadium

NFL Divisional Playoff Preview: Saints at Vikings

They had at least one takeaway in 13 of the next 14 games, giving the ball back to their future Hall of Fame quarterback during an eight-game win streak after the 0-2 start.

Whether the Vikings have Sam Bradford in uniform for their first playoff game on Sunday remains to be seen. The Saints have won three of their last four meetings against the Vikings. The Saints get a chance to double that amount on Sunday in Minnesota.

During a conference call on Wednesday ahead of the premiere of his documentary "Shocked: A Hidden Factor in the Sports Concussion Crisis", the former Vikings and Packers quarterback was asked by Minneapolis radio station KFAN about his memories of that game.

They've played 15 games against the Vikings in Minnesota.

Snead fell behind Coleman in the Saints' pecking order when he missed the first three games of the season because of a DUI suspension, then missed two more games with a hamstring injury.

"He's just a talented guy that can make the throws", says linebacker Craig Robertson.

What are the odds ... the Titans can pull off another upset? "They do a great job in play actions, do a great job in screens, so we'll have to be on point".

It's that time of year where the teams that win get to move on to play another week and the losers go home to figure out what went wrong.

New Orleans has a pair of running backs that are both lethal. Gronkowski has caught nine touchdowns in the playoffs. But that's where most of their shared traits end.

However, it's not clear which quarterback will be Keenum's backup and which quarterback will be the third stringer. Vonn Bell ranked 1st among National Football League safeties with career-high 4.5 sacks in 2017. But the odds are against them this week. Yes, they can. They are, now that the Eagles are without Carson Wentz, the best team in the NFC. Whether it's more conservative or less conservative either way I'm going to be me. Those who believe in such things, will point to the four Super Bowl losses, or the heart-breaking playoff defeats, including devastating setback in the 1987, 1998 and 2009 NFC title games.

The 22-year-old has only had two such games in his short professional career, but he's picked up over 100 total yards in seven contests since his team's October 22 win over the Green Bay Packers.

To get an idea of how risky it can be to assume success in this league, just look at last year's NFC playoffs. The odds are not in their favor to turn things around this week.

Similar to Minnesota's game in Chicago, the Jets started slow and came on late, but this time the effort wasn't enough to beat the Blackhawks.

Antonio Brown looks poised to play this weekend, giving Pittsburgh its most lethal offensive weapon for this playoff clash.

Rookie sensation Dalvin Cook suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in the fourth game of the season, but veterans Latavius Murray and Jerick McKinnon were there to replace him at running back.
