National Football League notes: Brees gives Saints QB edge vs. Vikings
14 January, 2018, 19:05 | Author: Wade Massey
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. "Obviously, we've looked at that game and how we've changed and how we've evolved as a defence". Minnesota will get just enough offense and force Drew Brees into a late-game turnover.
The Saints defense has fared well for most of the season, but it has struggled in recent weeks. That combo was held to 68 total yards in their playoff win against Carolina last week, though. However, Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey and tight end Greg Olsen each posted over 100 yards, and quarterback Cam Newton accounted for 386 (349 passing, 37 rushing). Have thoughts on how the Vikings and Saints are performing? The difference for New Orleans here is whether they can put pressure on the Vikings front to get to Case Keenum as they have been one of the most balanced teams in the National Football League and if they can't keep their pivot upright this weekend it could be their downfield and spoil the chance to play in a Super Bowl at home.

Aside from their success this season, the Minnesota Vikings' quarterback situation has been the most talked about topic of conversation of the year. For example, quick passes to running back Jerrick McKinnon out of the backfield could go a long way toward winning this game.
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) - The Minnesota Vikings have activated quarterback Sam Bradford from injured reserve, putting their original starter this season on the roster before their first playoff game. "The 6'6", 265-pounder has 57 catches for 532 yards and eight touchdowns.
So who should they be rooting for?
Give the edge to the Vikings in this one, although don't expect them to run away with this game like they did in Week 1.
