Vikings activate QB Bradford off injured reserve

Cam Newton clears Instagram account

Whether Drew Brees' 12 playoff games and almost 4,000 career passing yards in the postseason give him an advantage when the Vikings host the New Orleans Saints will be determined Sunday afternoon. 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. That combined puts them as the top defense in terms of total yards allowed.

"To be honest, I really don't care", Murray said.

The teams facing off this weekend are quite different from the squads that took to the field on September 11 in what was a 29-19 Vikings win. And as the Saints grew more comfortable with Lattimore, they asked him to spend more time assigned to one receiver.

Turns out, Keenum and Brees, each less than an inch above or below being six-feet tall, think they have a lot in common and the result is one of mutual admiration.

The Notre Dame product hasn't experienced much success in the postseason before, as he has 66 yards on two catches in two playoff appearances, but that is about to change if the Vikings approach Sunday the right way.

"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. The more they have the ball, the better they are able to utilize Brees and his weapons. Minnesota's defense is elite in all three levels.

In the second clash of the season, it will be interesting to see what the Vikings' offense will rely on since the Saints have bolstered their defense. "It's just a God-given, innate thing that he's maximized by working hard".

Case Keenum admits he will have a few butterflies when he makes the first playoff start of his career Sunday afternoon. Bradford had just produced an injury-free career-best performance in 2016, so the Vikings were banking on him. Minnesota's linebackers and defensive front featuring Everson Griffin and Linval Joseph will also face the tall task of shutting down New Orleans' two-headed backfield of Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara. The Vikings are among the best in the National Football League at defending the run and defending the pass, so the Saints might struggle to move the ball consistently. "I think, talking about Keenum, he's just a good manager of the game".

With the powerful Ingram bringing the thunder, and shifty Kamara serving as the lightning, they have combined for 1,552 yards and an astounding 20 touchdowns rushing, plus 1,242 yards and five touchdowns receiving. WR Adam Thielen was 2nd in NFC with 1,276 yards receiving and fourth with 91 receptions ... Minnesota, the second favorite on the updated odds to win Super Bowl 52, is 7-2 ATS in its last nine games against New Orleans.
