The call: The Vikings will beat the Saints if …

Vikings undecided on whether to activate QB Sam Bradford | Idaho Statesman Doug Wolter: Everything's falling in place for the Vikings, so what's the problem?

Only one player (Brian Robison) remains from the Vikings team that lost to the Saints in the 2010 NFC Championship Game, so while fans might be hoping to exorcise ghosts from the overtime loss, players don't seem to be thinking that way.

As strong as the Saints offense is and all of the big numbers they've put up this season, plus having the win in the playoffs, Minnesota's defense is very strong and capable of putting a stop to the Saints and their offensive firepower this week. Case Keenum started the next three games. However, Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey and tight end Greg Olsen each posted over 100 yards, and quarterback Cam Newton accounted for 386 (349 passing, 37 rushing).

The multi-faceted Saints (11-5) offense will be tested against the Vikings. Have thoughts on how the Vikings and Saints are performing? This game features two teams that are so similar in the way they win football games, It will truly be a survival of the fittest. Head coach Mike Zimmer has taken the Vikings to the playoffs in two of his four seasons in Minnesota. With Teddy Bridgewater still rehabbing from his own knee injury, the Vikings had no other choice than to turn to the Case Keenum to lead them to victory!

The Vikings are here because of the way their defense has played - particularly at home - and they will get to the NFC Championship Game because of a group that can corral one of the league's most balanced attacks.

Keenum, a career backup in his first five seasons, has thrown almost as many touchdown passes (22) for the Vikings (13-3) during the 2017 season as he did in his first five seasons combined (24).
