Vikings activate Bradford from IR for playoff game

But while talk of a curse might bore the Vikings, there is one thing they should be very cognizant of as they prepare for Sunday's NFC Divisional playoff game against New Orleans at U.S. Bank Stadium. Keenum will be a free agent at the end of this playoff run, and despite his breakout year the Vikings could decide to return to Bradford, with Teddy Bridgewater (who appeared in one game this season after not playing since 2015) as a backup. That combined puts them as the top defense in terms of total yards allowed.

"I've got a lot of love for a lot of people there", Line said.

It's understandable that fans of a certain age might prefer the Vikes just bow out before they get that far rather than see their team give Packers fans more ammunition for mockery.

Despite having the NFL's second-ranked offense, the Saints were surprisingly pedestrian on third down - converting just 38 per cent of the time to sit 19th in the league. The good news is that Kyle Rudolph and Pat Elflein is not on the list, meaning they are good to go.

Payton's Saints had two more games before the Week 5 bye to resurrect their season, in the coach's mind. The more they have the ball, the better they are able to utilize Brees and his weapons.

Favre said, according to ESPN: "A concussion doesn't necessarily have to be knocked out cold and removed from a game, although the new protocol is in place to remove you from a game even if you're not walking sideways or your arm goes stiff or whatever".

"He's a good player", Shurmur said of Remmers.

Given the Jaguars' elite defense and Pittsburgh's inconsistent offense, Jacksonville actually has decent odds at pulling off an upset this week.

Rudolph should record triple digits in receiving yards and possibly add a touchdown as Keenum works into a rhythm, but it may not be enough to come away with a win.

The defensive turnaround has been a key to the Saints' sixth playoff appearance in 12 seasons of Payton and Brees. But Brees is a different matchup than most.

A more recent example came last season.

The New Orleans Saints are 0-3 straight up and against the spread over their last three road games.

For both teams, really. Kamara rushed the ball seven times and Mark Ingram had six attempts for 17 yards. If Keenum is injured, or starts Sunday's game incredibly poorly, the former No. 1 overall pick is the better fill-in option. To replace Cook, the Vikings have had running backs Latavius Murray and Jerick McKinnon combining for over 1,300 rushing yards.

In Week 1, Adam Thielen had nine receptions for 157 yards.

Asked on Friday if Bradford was ready to play in a game, Zimmer said, "I think so".

The victor moves a step closer to Super Bowl LII, which will be played in three weeks in the same stadium as Sunday's game.
