NFL Divisional Round Picks: Saints Vs. Vikings Odds, Analysis, Predictions

The Vikings last took the field for a game on December 31 and defeated the Bears 23-10 at home to secure a bye through the first round and the opportunity to host the Saints in the Divisional round on Sunday. Keenum will be a free agent at the end of this playoff run, and despite his breakout year the Vikings could decide to return to Bradford, with Teddy Bridgewater (who appeared in one game this season after not playing since 2015) as a backup. With the help of a great defense, he led the Vikings to a 13-3 record, the best season in Minnesota since 1998 when Randall Cunningham, Randy Moss, Cris Carter and Robert Smith helped destroy National Football League records. "But I love the way that guy plays, and he's played extremely well for his team". No other team has more than five home wins in the postseason in that time.

In the time that Sean Payton has coached the Saints (excluding 2012, when he didn't), the Saints are 46-43 on the road in the regular season. I think that's always the best way. Bradford, who completed 27 of his 32 passes for 346 yards and three touchdowns in the Vikings' season-opening win over New Orleans, twisted his left knee in the game, and missed the team's next three games before making a truncated return on October 9 against the Bears.

"They had some speed, and the next thing you know, they were throwing the ball all over the field", said Steve, who attended all 57 of Case's games with the Cougars and has been to each game he's played for the Vikings.

Nobody is talking about the fact that the duo has combined for 1,412 yards and 11 touchdowns on the ground this season, plus 524 yards and two touchdowns through the air.

Look for at least 300 yards out of Brees as he picks apart the highly touted Minnesota defense by going to Kamara in the screen game and Thomas on deep routes as his main outlets. The Saints surrendered 4.4 yards per rush during the regular season, and they had some trouble with backs Christian McCaffrey and James White in pass defense.

Gruden was traded to Tampa Bay in 2003 and proceeded to guide the Buccaneers to a Super Bowl championship in his first season. The Raiders played the Eagles on Christmas Day where Gruden worked the ESPN broadcast as a color analyst.

Rudolph should record triple digits in receiving yards and possibly add a touchdown as Keenum works into a rhythm, but it may not be enough to come away with a win.

A look at the New Orleans Saints' danger men, that Drew Bees has to choose from, heading into the NFC divisional round. The Saints will tell you otherwise.

A more recent example came last season. Since then though, both teams have changed drastically. Their offense is second in total yards and fourth in total points. Kamara rushed the ball seven times and Mark Ingram had six attempts for 17 yards. Patrick Laine had the lone goal for Winnipeg, which had won three in a row previously and was averaging five goals a game during that stretch.

A writer for the Boston Globe tweeted Friday the "Vikings plan to dress" Bradford, who hasn't been active since Week 5 against the Chicago Bears.

If they win, that would lead to a matchup with either the Atlanta Falcons or the Philadelphia Eagles for a spot in the Super Bowl.
