Kartje: Case Keenum deserves more credit for getting Vikings this far

Their first and only such win came after the 2013 season, when they edged the Eagles in a wild-card round game in Philadelphia before losing the following week at Seattle.

The New Orleans Saints are 0-3 straight up and against the spread over their last three road games. But who would be No. 2 on the depth chart for Sunday's Divisional Round game against the New Orleans Saints became a question with Sam Bradford returning to practice last week.

"I have no doubts the Saints will beat the Vikings this Sunday and continue their path to the Super Bowl", said Kennedy. "I am so confident that we will win, I bet Senator Klobuchar a king cake". It is unknown whether they also will make Teddy Bridgewater active, and the Vikings backup quarterback isn't giving anything away, if he knows.

Leber played linebacker for Minnesota from 2006-10 and made five tackles in the Vikings' 31-28 overtime loss to New Orleans in the 2009 NFC championship game.

A week after the Saints defeated the Panthers for the third time this season, they turn their sights to the surprising Vikings led by Case Keenum. In 2011, the Saints' passing game was arguably the best in National Football League history. "Part of it is talking to them about continuing to rush, and part of it is we've got to be tight in the coverage".

Rudolph played in the final three games - wins over Cincinnati, Green Bay and Chicago - but said he was "pretty limited".

New Orleans and their high-powered offence travel to the site of Super Bowl 52 to take on Minnesota's ferocious defence. I believe the Vikings will lead most of the way, but Brees will lead a game-winning drive, capped off with a last-minute field goal. Bradford played only a single half the rest of the season as Case Keenum replaced the injured Bradford and put himself in MVP consideration.

It's understandable that fans of a certain age might prefer the Vikes just bow out before they get that far rather than see their team give Packers fans more ammunition for mockery. The Minnesota Vikings are the home team, second seed in the NFC and have the hopes of becoming the first team ever to have a home Super Bowl. He has four receiving touchdowns inside the red zone, has been targeted 17 times inside the 20-yard-line, getting 14 grabs. Also, expect offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur to line up Jerick McKinnon in the slot to exploit a Saints defense which allowed six catches and 101 yards to Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey last week. So if the Vikings are going to overcome any potential hiccups from Keenum, they'll need Murray and McKinnon to exploit that. Slowly, communication improved on the back end combined with the play of rookie Marcus Lattimore and Ken Crawley at cornerback. They've done well handling athletic running backs all year by showing off their team speed on defense.

How are they, then, going to prepare for the Vikings? You know the list gets even fewer of the guys that are still on this team that played with that group.
