Mike Zimmer Faced With Tall Task Of Limiting Drew Brees

He's won a Super Bowl, he's been MVP.

Where was I? Oh yeah, Viking fans carrying a grudge over the 2009 NFC Title.

Each defensive end tallied a career-high 13 sacks for their respective team, a total that tied them for fourth in the league. "Clearly, the loudest (road) environment we play in this year".

"We just wanted to create a great environment".

Here is all you need to know about the NFL Divisional Round clash. This game is going to be close.

"You're getting, No. 1, a real good pass rush, so the time to throw it is quicker", Payton said of Minnesota's third-down success. New Orleans won't be the favorite in the divisional-round tilt as the visiting team, and it also lost to the Vikings in Week 1, but this a much different team now.

Case Keenum spends a part of every offseason studying Drew Brees.

Anyone who doesn't root for a specific team will find that team's fan base "obnoxious". Backup quarterback Derek Anderson has only attempted eight passes all season long and he attempted one pass in the game and it was incomplete. Drew Brees threw for 376 yards and two touchdowns against an interception.

Ultimately, Zimmer is right.

The Saints are 2-7 ATS in their last nine games against the Vikings.

But it's still about Brees, because he is the face of the Saints, the face of the city.

On the ground, Mark Ingram rushed for 1,089 yards and 12 touchdowns in 217 tries while Alvin Kamara added 684 yards and seven touchdowns in 111 attempts. They're led by veteran end Cameron Jordan, who was the only Saints defender to register a hit on Bradford.

Brees is a week shy of his 39th birthday. Newton returned to the field and needed only three plays to send the Panthers back into the end zone, courtesy of a defense-breaking 56-yard touchdown pass to Christian McCaffrey.

"It's night and day", Brees said, via the New Orleans Advocate. They may have similar struggles running the ball in the next round. All those things you have to be aware of. "Some guys get into their late 20s and just blossom, and he's done just that". Analysts and National Football League on there were giving us his take on the saints and vikings Brian ball thing at ball the NF bail on Twitter Brian thank you so much of the time we appreciate it. I. Rookie Dalvin Cook rushed for 127 yards but tore his ACL in Week 4. Had Gano made that field goal early in the game for the Panthers. maybe Carolina treats the final drive a little bit differently.

Minnesota finished the regular season ranked No. 1 in total defense (275.0) and second in passing (192.4) and rushing defense (83.6). Well but boy bright bright OK you bring up Lattimore we'd love Lattimore has one thing in the history of the bush years the saints have not gotten. He has certainly gotten the Vikings wide receivers' attention. And they've won a lot of games due to their resurgent defense, led by defensive end Cameron Jordan and cornerback Marshon Lattimore. He's got great ball skills. That is where you can really capitalize. "He's not playing like a rookie-he's not a rookie anymore". The Vikings knocked off the Saints 29-19 in the regular-season opener as three-point home chalk with quarterback Sam Bradford under center, and this time around Case Keenum will get his shot. "Just similar build. I love the way he plays the game". "He's an excitable guy, but he's always excitable, so I don't see that being much of a thing".

Asked what he'd like to see out of Foles on Saturday, Eagles offensive coordinator Frank Reich said he simply wants Foles to "play his game". Michael Thomas caught eight passes for 131 yards, including a 46-yarder that set up Kamara's short TD run in the fourth quarter. I expect the Vikings to be able to score on the Saints and hold them down on defense.

"I do think playing at home is an advantage for a young, well I don't know about young, but inexperienced quarterback", Zimmer said.
