Whether the Vikings have Sam Bradford in uniform for their first playoff game on Sunday remains to be seen. The Saints did something very hard in pecking off a division rival three times in a season. The Saints, the 3 seed have a much-improved defense to go with a first-ballot Hall of Famer, and super bowl champion in Drew Brees leading the defense.
In the team's Week 1 loss to the Minnesota Vikings the offense was anemic at best, and barely resembled the squad that finished at or near the top of the league in several statistical categories.
The Minnesota offense has flourished under the leadership of quarterback Case Keenum, who has formed a solid rapport with offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur and his teammates en route to throwing 22 touchdown pass and completing over 67 percent of his attempts.
Seeing Peterson lash out at Payton, provided confirmation to Vikings general manager Rick Spielman and coach Mike Zimmer that they had made the right move by saying goodbye to Peterson after 10 seasons in Minnesota.
The Vikings begin another quest for a Super Bowl title today, hosting the New Orleans Saints in a playoff game in Minneapolis.
Saudi women allowed to attend football match for first time
Fatimah Baeshen, spokesman at the Saudi embassy in Washington "rooted for the ladies" in a message on Twitter. Both clubs also reportedly offered shirts at discount prices to attract female fans.
The Vikings being at home surely plays a part in that line of thinking among betters.

That could be a tough out for the Vikings if they advance to that game. Alvin Kamara and Mark Iingram have been the NFL's most dynamic rushing duo this season. "It's going to be a totally different game". They're the first pair of running backs on the same team to each have at least 1,500 yards from scrimmage in a season.
"I read his book a long time ago".
Drew Brees will lead the New Orleans offense onto the field at Minnesota Sunday and commence the 13th postseason game of his stellar career, already armed with seven such victories and one Super Bowl ring for the Saints.
Bradford was stellar in the opening win against the Saints, but unable to play the following week. "He's working in, but he's got a way to go still".
Great value, and given the Vikings defense, this is the best statistical play as well in these five picks.
