Sam Bradford to dress Sunday for first time since Week 5

Sam Bradford to dress Sunday for first time since Week 5

I don't think we could've dug ourselves further into a hole, and I think fortunately we played well at Carolina. The good news is that Kyle Rudolph and Pat Elflein is not on the list, meaning they are good to go. "Every team right now that is not playing in the playoffs has quickly turned their focus to how am I going to improve my team".

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.

Vikings fans surely will feel like Bridgewater, as he has since returning to practice in October, should continue operating as Keenum's backup. And again in 1998 (Gary Anderson), 2000 (41-0) and 2009 (Favre).

Keenum is in his fifth National Football League season, but 2017 was the first year in which he started more than nine games. Expect the Saints to come out in various formations in an attempt to put the ball in his hands. At nearly 40, Brees likely doesn't have a lot of time left so these are 3 mistakes the Saints can not afford to make against the Vikings this time.

The NFL determined the allegations to be true in 2012, which led to Saints head coach Sean Payton's suspension for the entire 2012 season, as well as a handful of fines and other sanctions.

All of this has left the Vikings two victories from their first Super Bowl berth since the 1976 season.

The victor moves a step closer to Super Bowl LII, which will be played in three weeks in the same stadium as Sunday's game. The Saints can win in so many ways while the Vikings still appear as a team that can make the minimum mistakes if they want to advance.

Like any elite offense, the Vikings have adapted based on the strengths of the defensive unit they face.




Both teams played each other in Week 1 of the season, with the Vikings winning by two possessions.

Playoff experience is the headliner in this weekend's divisional round. That's more than the Packers have earned in the same time. The Saints had won the last three meetings, including the last one in Minneapolis (42-20 in 2011). The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have one.

It's important to remember that the current Vikings don't carry any of this baggage.

"I don't know how the Boston Globe would know because I haven't made any decisions yet", Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said, per the St. Paul Pioneer Press.

Nine years later, the Saints got their revenge when Garret Hartley booted a 40-yard field goal in overtime that sent the Saints to their first Super Bowl, setting off a wild celebration in the Superdome that day. That isn't a curse, it's not being good enough.

It's the same Case Keenum who was benched and eventually allowed to leave by the Los Angeles Rams last season.

Carter was activated from the practice squad on December 15 and appeared in three games. To advance, they'll need to overcome the noise, an underrated Minnesota offense, and a Vikings defense that is excellent but dominant, perhaps because it hasn't had to be. Yes, they can. They are, now that the Eagles are without Carson Wentz, the best team in the NFC. "But I love the way that guy plays, and he's played extremely well for his team".
