The Saints are just 1-6 SU and 2-5 ATS in their last seven postseason road games per the OddsShark NFL Database. Keenum will be joined by another former Fisher QB in Sam Bradford with the Vikings, who's been cleared to suit up and hold a Surface tablet.
"That was my redshirt year in the National Football League", he said, "but to be part of a playoff run like that and see the preparation that was put into it and how quickly the game goes was a good experience for me". But both these teams are vastly different from where they each were in Week 1.
The teams found their identity but had plenty of personnel changes along the way.
Guess who else reportedly will be back.
New Orleans is quite familiar with the pressure the Vikings fans will put on them. Why they didn't throw the other, I have no idea. Plus, you have to think Kamara and Ingram are both due, which is unsafe.
Coleman had 23 catches during the regular season for 364 yards and three touchdowns.
Peterson had six carries for 18 yards in the first meeting in Minnesota. Kamara is definitely a guy that can bounce to the outside. Brees tossed for 197 yards and three touchdowns against Brett Favre, who was 28-for-46 for 310 yards, one touchdown and two picks.
The Vikings, after a first round bye, will host New Orleans Sunday at 3:40 on 570 WNAX.
A couple more must-haves: Ladies, if you're headed to the stadium, be sure to pack your Saints stadium-approved see-though bag. Ginn has been a significant difference maker for New Orleans this season. Don't be surprised if he makes a big play against an inexperienced Vikings passing game.
The thought process here is that if Ginn can do enough to draw a little attention off Thomas, it'll make Drew Brees and company's job a whole lot easier. "He proved that (Sunday)".
Although most work weeks are coming to a close, Zimmer said he still had "a lot of work to do, honestly, as far as preparation and studying the things that I need to study". Slowly, communication improved on the back end combined with the play of rookie Marcus Lattimore and Ken Crawley at cornerback.
This team is the second unit in franchise history to hit the 13-win mark for the season.
Lattimore leads the Saints with five interceptions. "He's physical. He can run with anybody".
Buffalo can also ratchet up the volume at New Era Field, reaching a high of 124.8.
Just because he was born in Minnesota doesn't mean Cameron Jordan will take it easy on the Vikings. As a team, the Saints' 42 sacks were tied for seventh in the NFL. But naturally, when you consider his career, Bradford came out of the season opener with a sore knee and has barely been seen since. He intercepted Jameis Winston twice in Week 17 and recorded eight tackles against the Panthers last weekend. Never has a player and a team been more set up for a fall. "He's humorous and I think he genuinely enjoys what he does and that's just how it's expressed". He has practiced five times in recent weeks following November 7 arthroscopic surgery to clean up his left knee.
Bridgewater wouldn't reveal who Keenum's backup will be in the divisional playoff against the Saints at U.S. Bank Stadium.
