New Orleans Saints: 3 Mistakes team can't repeat vs. Vikings

New Orleans Saints: 3 Mistakes team can't repeat vs. Vikings

Saints receiver Brandon Coleman has been declared out of Sunday's divisional-round playoff game in Minnesota. Keenum has relied on coaches - Mike Zimmer, Pat Shurmur, Kevin Stefanski - with years of playoff experience between them for advice and even received a text from Hall of Fame quarterback Kurt Warner this week. He said that's when it's helpful to remember what enabled success to this point.

"We're 7-1 at home and that's a big thing".

"I think they are better".

Bridgewater started the Vikings' last playoff game, a 10-9 loss to Seattle in a wild-card game January 10, 2016.

Slowed up: The Pro Bowl pair of Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara had the least productive combined performance for the Saints against Carolina, with just 68 total yards from scrimmage.

"It's a cool thought, but I just want us to win", Bridgewater said. "It just feels like now I've got a chance to show you guys how I've grown". He could only laugh.

"To be honest, I really don't care", Murray said.

"I prepare for every game as if it's that magnitude", Brees said. You go through a lot of what-ifs. If he isn't, they probably get blown out.

The Saints offense has plenty for opponents to worry about. "He's working in but he's got a ways to go still". He's very accurate, gets the ball out early.

After an impressive training camp and preseason, the new-look Saints secondary entered the game with so much confidence.

With the powerful Ingram bringing the thunder, and shifty Kamara serving as the lightning, they have combined for 1,552 yards and an astounding 20 touchdowns rushing, plus 1,242 yards and five touchdowns receiving.

Only years later the National Football League had learned of the players' extra incentive to hit Favre that day under the wishes of then-defensive coordinator Gregg Williams.

Seven other Vikings were listed as full participants, including DE Everson Griffen (foot), DT Shamar Stephen (ankle), TE Kyle Rudolph (ankle), FB C.J. Ham (neck), S Anthony Harris (knee), CB Xavier Rhodes (foot) and C Pat Elflein (shoulder).

Bradford has participated in five practices since returning January 2. It's taken some big-play pressure off Brees, who proved last weekend he still can almost single-handedly win a game while throwing for 379 yards against a Panthers defense focused on shutting down the backfield.

The young Saints, featuring rookie cornerback Marshon Lattimore with a team-leading five interceptions, couldn't get one takeaway in the opening two games. He hasn't been able to work his way back into a consistent role since.

After the game, Sean Payton and Drew Brees spoke about what it meant to have their former players and teammates in town.
