Numbers Behind the Minnesota Vikings, New Orleans Saints Matchup

How Many Times Have the Vikings Gone to the Super Bowl? Numbers Behind the Minnesota Vikings, New Orleans Saints Matchup

Of course, fans will remember the Week 1 victory the Vikings had over the Saints earlier this season, but this New Orleans team isn't the same one they faced earlier in the year.

After starting this season with an ugly 29-19 loss at the Minnesota Vikings in Week 1, they'll return to U.S. Bank Stadium next Sunday in the divisional round of the playoffs, thanks to a narrow 31-26 victory over the Carolina Panthers in Sunday's wild-card round. When asked last week about the possibility of rematch against the Saints, he said, "I'm not anxious about that".

The Saints finally made it back to the playoffs this season by surrounding Drew Brees with the kind of capable ground game and attacking defen...

After Carson Wentz's injury, this game features the two best teams in the NFC and the victor of this game has a great chance to represent the conference in the Super Bowl.

Afterward, many on the Vikings alleged Saints players were trying to take quarterback Brett Favre out of the game. "They should go out and win this game for the 2017 team and for themselves and for their coaches". It was all about Adrian Peterson and the Saints' terrible defensive play - both of which have become things of the past, with Peterson being traded to the Arizona Cardinals and the Saints drastically improving their play in the secondary (at least until Sunday's game against Carolina, that is). September was so long ago. Throwing for 291 yards and a touchdown in 27 completions, Brees was not the problem the last time these teams met this season. And if they just happen to beat up Drew Brees so badly that he retires from football, well, that would just be karma. The third-round pick is already one of the NFL's best receiving backs, and has put himself in the Rookie of the Year conversation by averaging 101 yards from scrimmage per game since the Week 1 loss four months ago. They've won a lot of games this year by running the ball with Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara. In Week 1, the Saints were giving Adrian Peterson carries. New Orleans has won four of the last five.

Still, there has been plenty of buzz in Minnesota about getting back at the Saints. "They're tops in most categories defensively - I think total defense (275.9 yards per game), scoring defense (15.8 points), second in rush (83.6 yards), second in pass (192.4 yards)". And now they have Brees at his best. During Playoff season, that question gets asked even more frequently than ever.

Williams, a third-year pro who missed almost all of his first two seasons with separate injuries, has two interceptions this season and saw increased playing time after Vaccaro's injuries. Minnesota has the best defense in the league, but it's not as if Carolina's defense is some pushover.

But will that formula continue to work in a playoff game?
