Minnesota Vikings vs Saints: Expert picks to win in the Divisional Round

Case Keenum 'excited nervous' for first career playoff start

Meantime, the Twitter fight continues, with Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey telling Landrieu, "A Saints 'W" is less likely than Minneapolis breaking 50 degrees on Sunday.

Just because the Vikings won handily in Week 1, it does not mean Sunday's playoff game will have a similar result. As a team, New Orleans seventh on third-and-long. Yes, he was the league's seventh-highest-rated passer while leading a 13-3 team, but he failed to pass for 300 yards in each of his last seven starts and his sack rate exploded down the stretch. Again, the Saints know what they've got under center. "The only thing sweeter will be the Vikings playing in the Super Bowl right here in Minnesota in February." . The Saints are +7 for the season, the Vikings are +5.

The Panthers paid a dear price for the strategy in their 31-26 wild-card loss at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

'America First', 'Make in India' are not incompatible
Instead, he said, the two had the potential to be "mutually beneficial, increase economic interactions and volume of trade". When asked about Sino-US ties, Juster noted, "We are interested in a constructive relationship.


The Saints lost their Week 1 matchup with the Vikings in the red zone, where they were forced to kick two of their four field goals (the other two were from inside the 25-yard line). So if the Vikings are going to overcome any potential hiccups from Keenum, they'll need Murray and McKinnon to exploit that. While it's hard to discount the experience of Drew Brees, the unsafe running back tandem of Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram, as well as an underrated defense, it's a surprise to see so many picking against the Vikings at home.

For the most part, the Saints have stuck with the run - even in games where the running game has had its issues. The over/under for this game is 46.5 total points.

Prediction: The Vikings are the slightly better all-around team, but I don't trust Keenum against an opportunistic defense. But that conveniently ignores the fact Bradford has played a meaningful football game in the last two years, unlike Bridgewater since his major knee injury late in the 2016 preseason. Plus, you have to think Kamara and Ingram are both due, which is risky.
