Sam Bradford to dress Sunday for first time since Week 5

Case Keenum 'excited nervous' for first career playoff start

The first time the Saints and Vikings met this season, Minnesota defeated New Orleans 29-19 at U.S. Bank Stadium back in week 1.

Keenum will call on tight end Kyle Rudolph to produce his first 100-yard receiving game of the season as the quarterback looks to play it safe and avoid Saints defensive backs Marshon Lattimore and Ken Crawley.

Two other Saints players are listed as questionable because of illness: linebacker Michael Mauti and quarterback Taysom Hill, both of whom play roles on special teams. "If I perform like I know I can we're going to be good". 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.

A cataclysmic season was averted for the Minnesota Vikings when Case Keenum stepped in for an injured Sam Bradford and Teddy Bridgewater.

The most hard challenge of the night falls on the Vikings defensive front who will try to slay the two-headed monster in Ingram and Kamara.

There's a perception that the Saints are a team that often wins at home and wins just enough on the road to periodically make the playoffs.

"I mean it's not going to be like playing in the Superdome, that's for sure".

Given the Jaguars' elite defense and Pittsburgh's inconsistent offense, Jacksonville actually has decent odds at pulling off an upset this week.

Despite the presence of Brees, the Saints must be balanced on offense and prevent big plays on defense. Future Hall of Famer and one-time Super Bowl champion Drew Brees will be leading the Saints, while Keenum will be making his first postseason start. Bradford had just produced an injury-free career-best performance in 2016, so the Vikings were banking on him. The Saints also still had Adrian Peterson in their backfield then, before trading him to the Arizona Cardinals and clearing space for rookie Alvin Kamara to elevate his role next to Mark Ingram.

For both teams, really.

"At 6'6", Rudolph can be an asset in the red zone as Keenum looks to find a reliable target that can create separation from a defender. The over/under for this game is 46.5 total points. Case Keenum only ahead of Joe Flacco, Jay Cutler and Eli Manning on third-and-long with 5.7 yards per attempt on third-and-long and the Vikings rank 20th on third-and-long conversion rate. To replace Cook, the Vikings have had running backs Latavius Murray and Jerick McKinnon combining for over 1,300 rushing yards. WR Adam Thielen was 2nd in NFC with 1,276 yards receiving and fourth with 91 receptions ... In fact, a team that plays in a Super Bowl stadium has never even been to that year's conference championship game.
