Young Vikings fans hilariously debate team's playoff chances

John Shipley

Both teams have changed so much that the first game tape barely was applicable, if it was applicable at all, for Sunday's rematch in their NFC Divisional playoff game.

When the New Orleans Saints started the 2017 season, they did so just wanting to be competitive. Instead, the quarterback will be the backup for Case Keenum against the Saints and Teddy Bridgewater will not be suiting up at all.

The Saints come into the game with the fifth-ranked pass and rushing offense and second overall in the National Football League at 393 yards per game. But Bridgewater has not seen meaningful action in two years. Adrian Peterson factored somewhat heavily into the game-plan for the Saints.

Alvin Kamara was a non-factor in the first meeting. He also played for Detroit and New Orleans.

"We're gonna be loud", Berniard said. Thomas caught 104 passes for 1,245 yards and caught at least five passes 14 times.

The two teams previously met in the season-opener on September 11, with the Vikings earning a 29-29 win. In last week's playoff victory, Kamara touched the ball 11 times and produced 33 yards and Ingram touched the ball 10 times and produced 35 yards.

The march of time made it almost impossible this week to find a Vikings player who even remembers the team's gut-wrenching loss in the 2009-10 NFC championship game at New Orleans - defensive end Brian Robison, still effective nine years later, was the only current team member actually there - and completely impossible to find a player who understands what that game meant to Vikings fans. Meanwhile, the Saints are 1-6 all time on the road in the playoffs. Wentz was an MVP candidate before suffering a season-ending knee injury. Not many points in it. Saints to win this one.

Ingram is hoping for a second big victory of the past seven days on Sunday after Alabama defeated Georgia 26-23 in overtime in the CFP championship game on Monday night.

His issues with fumbling also continued as he lost three of seven during the regular season in 2015. The fourth-year pro has had a very quiet season (eight catches, 92 yards) because he has failed to reintegrate into the team's offense after being suspended for the first three regular-season games. Thus, it is going to be up to him shut down the Vikings WRs. Their defense can create a frenzy and, consequently, turnovers, which makes life easier for the offense. It was filled with Who Dat fans.

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).

Now, there is the matter of Case Keenum.
