Brees-Keenum: Will playoff savvy prevail in Saints vs. Vikings?

Brees-Keenum: Will playoff savvy prevail in Saints vs. Vikings?

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees (9) throws before an NFL divisional football playoff game against the Minnesota Vikings in Minneapolis, Sunday, Jan. 14, 2018.

Adrian Peterson is a first-ballot Hall of Fame running back who was capable of dominating games during his prime with the Minnesota Vikings.

That said, the team has lost four starters since the beginning of the season and has given up 400-plus yards in each of their last three road games.

The Minnesota Vikings are the talk of the rust belt as they begin their path to potentially being the first team to ever host a Super Bowl.

The Vikings went 7-1 at home during the regular season, and they beat the Saints in the opener 29-19.

Perhaps that seems like a minor transaction, but it might matter because Case Keenum, Bridgewater and Bradford can all become free agents after the season. Minnesota has never had three quarterbacks active during a game since coach Mike Zimmer arrived in 2014.

The NFC Championship will be set following Sunday evening's game between the New Orleans Saints and Minnesota Vikings at U.S. Bank Stadium, home of Super Bowl 52.

- Running back Jay Ajayi was traded by the Miami Dolphins to the Eagles on October 31 and has tag-teamed with LeGarrette Blount to make the Eagles' backfield more explosive and diverse.

Minnesota will get just enough offense and force Drew Brees into a late-game turnover.

Minnesota has weapons in the passing game in Stefon Diggs, Adam Thielen, and Kyle Rudolph, so it isn't just about stopping the other team. They have seen things no human should have to see, and they are preparing to see something new and just as frightful. The Vikings have seen him in practice for a while now. We had read - or in some cases, written - that story countless times before. Over the course of the season, the Vikings held opposing running backs to the fewest scrimmage yards in the NFL. The players may not have that game in mind as there isn't anyone on the roster (apart from defensive end Brian Robinson) from that game, but the players and coaches know how close the franchise got to a Super Bowl berth and don't want to have another loss to the Saints in the playoffs. The Vikings were third best in the NFL converting 43.5 percent of their third downs compared to a Saints defense that ranked 27th in the league by allowing 41.5 percent of third downs to be converted against them.
