Three members of the Saints will be making their first appearance in Minnesota since they were Vikings when New Orleans kicks off in U.S. Bank Stadium on Sunday.

Yes and let me tell you something-across the board, they are one, they're one of the best teams against the run, against the pass, they create turnovers. Both have since been lost for the remainder of the campaign with injuries.

With hopes that his hiring could help lure quarterback Case Keenum to the desert, Vikings offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur has emerged as the leading candidate to become the next head coach of the Arizona Cardinals, according to a TV station in Phoenix.

Thomas, who was held to five catches for 45 yards by the Vikings in their Week 1 meeting, was passed off between defensive backs rather than shadowed by Rhodes exclusively.

However, those interviews may have been conducted after an agreement had already been made with Gruden. Oakland Raiders owner Mark Davis was relentless in his pursuit of Jon Gruden - perhaps too relentless.

If Brees is able to pick up Minnesota's defensive scheme against the screen game early, it could open up success for Kamara, who has the speed to get past any of the Vikings linebackers in coverage.

Just because the Vikings won handily in Week 1, it does not mean Sunday's playoff game will have a similar result. The defense was exposed in this season's infancy, starting with the Vikings' 470 yards in the opener. RB Mark Ingram II set career highs in yards rushing (1,124) and yards from scrimmage (1,540) ...

The New Orleans Saints have made it through the wild card round, defeating the Panthers 31-26.

Neither Hill or Mauti would be huge losses even if their illnesses don't clear up by game time, but it is Brandon Coleman whose injury takes center stage this week. Kamara has eight scores, but averages more yards per rush, and can be used as a receiver option as well. New Orleans has played 17 playoff games and this matchup will allow the Vikings to break a tie with the Eagles for most frequent opponent.

Just getting to the Super Bowl would be a big deal for a team that's overcome as much as the Vikings have in the a year ago or so. The injury came at a terrible time for Bradford as he posted one of the best games of his career ironically against the New Orleans Saints.

While the Vikings' defense is No. 2 on third-and-long, Minnesota's offense is far less effective when put in a bind. That tied them with the Oakland Raiders (6-10), the Cincinnati Bengals (7-9) and the Cleveland Browns (0-16). At this point, Keenum was supposed to be wearing a baseball cap and holding the clipboard on the sideline while Sam Bradford or Teddy Bridgewater wore helmets and threw footballs on the field. Sunday will be his first playoff game. 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.

But throughout most of the regular season, Keenum looked at the 28-year-old on plenty of occasions.
