The New Orleans Saints carry their high octane offense into Minnesota to take on the Vikings in the NFC divisional round on Sunday.

Whether the Vikings have Sam Bradford in uniform for their first playoff game on Sunday remains to be seen. The Saints duo of Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara averaged 115.75 rushing yards and 77.63 receiving yards per game on the season, while Minnesota allowed only one running back group to top 100 rushing yards in a game this season.

If the Vikings advance to the Super Bowl, they would be the.

Yes, these teams met in Week 1 and the statistical differences were staggering with the Vikings outgaining the Saints, 437-269 (75 from the Saints which came in a late meaningless TD drive) en route to a 29-19 win.

"It's kind of hard to get (Bradford) reps when you're getting your starter ready", Zimmer said.

The Saints are 1-4 ATS in their last five overall and 13-5 ATS in their last 18 on the road while the Vikings are 6-2 ATS in their last eight against the NFC and 5-1 ATS in their last six home playoff games. He started his second year with Minnesota in style, completing 27 of 32 passes for 346 yards with three touchdowns and a career-best passer rating of 143.0.

The Vikings activated Bradford from injured reserve on Saturday, so Teddy Bridgewater will move to third on the depth chart.

- 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.

The Vikings, led by the speed of linebackers Anthony Barr and Eric Kendricks, have held several pass-catching running backs to minimal production this season. The NFL plans for that team to use the Vikings' practice facility in Eden Prairie, and have the NFC team practice at the University of Minnesota football facility. And if the Vikings were to win the NFC Championship Game on January 21, they'd spend Super Bowl week practicing and dressing in their normal environs, even though they'd technically be the road team on February 4.

"I read his book a long time ago".

Bradford was stellar in the opening win against the Saints, but unable to play the following week.

Home crowd and that defense should be enough for Vikings to inch past the Saints, who hope turnovers will help them score.
