Case Keenum respects the rules of freeze-tag

While his play has been impressive, he has been helped out by a staunch offensive line, not to mention a star-studded D which keeps putting him back on the park and in good field position.

"I've been a fan of his for a long time", Keenum said. 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. He'll have the Vikings ready for this game.

How can I watch the Saints and Vikings? As for the Lions, they have once again reverted to the mediocrity they are famous for. The Saints signed the seven-time Pro Bowler and three-time NFL rushing champ on April 25, even though they had Mark Ingram coming off a 1,000-yard season and would add Tennessee running back Alvin Kamara in the second round of the NFL Draft on April 28.

- Quarterback Nick Foles wasn't given much of a chance to carry the weight of the Eagles' playoff hopes as the replacement for Carson Wentz. That came a month after the Vikings decided not to pick up an $18 million option on Peterson's contract for 2017.

As the Vikings began preparations this week for their first NFC divisional playoff game in eight years, the team rolled out a new slogan for the playoffs: "Bring It Home". Kickoff from U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis will be at 4:40 p.m. ET on January 14.

So if you see a Vikings fan in church or at the grocery store this morning and they seem to be staring off into space in a cold sweat, their hands shaking, their face twitching. have mercy.

They say you should never let a fleeting hullabaloo divert you from the enduring issues of debate.

How do you think the New Orleans Saints will do on Sunday?

Jaguars' Two-Minute Drill from win over Buffalo
With only one touchdown and two field goals scored, it wasn't an exhilarating win by National Football League playoff standards. Allowed 1,433 rushing yards in last nine games (159.2 YPG); allowed 561 rushing yards in first seven games (80.1 YPG) in '17.

Peterson is the Vikings' all-time leading rusher with 11,747 yards; he set the single-game record for rushing yards (296) against San Diego in 2007; and became one of only seven running backs in National Football League history to rush for more than 2,000 yards in a season when he did it in 2012.

Still, nothing is certain in the NFL.

Competing teams ordinarily get 17.5 percent of Super Bowl tickets, with the league retaining 25.2 percent of the tickets and distributing 34.8 percent of them to the 29 clubs not playing in or hosting the game.

The Vikings rank fifth against the run and have faced their share of tough run-heavy offenses.
