Saints defense respects Case Keenum's play-making ability

But ahead of Sunday's divisional round game against the New Orleans Saints, the Minnesota Vikings are planning on making him active behind Case Keenum. The Vikings defense sells out to stop the Saints' one-two combo of Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara, and makes the Saints pass happy. The difference for New Orleans here is whether they can put pressure on the Vikings front to get to Case Keenum as they have been one of the most balanced teams in the National Football League and if they can't keep their pivot upright this weekend it could be their downfield and spoil the chance to play in a Super Bowl at home.

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. That is why the Vikings are comfortable starting Keenum in the playoffs despite a healthy Bradford and Teddy Bridgewater.

Keenum's feel for the game, the Vikings offense and his ability to get them into the right play means the Saints will have to play smart and do more than just chase him out of the pocket to get Keenum uncomfortable.

It's hard to believe Brees only had a pair of 300-yard passing games in the regular season, but he didn't have to do all the work to get the Saints into the postseason due to the output of the running backs.

But what's made the difference for both these sides from last season is the improvements on the other side of the ball. The Vikings can't reward Drew Brees with a short field or things will get interesting.

Radio and TV talk show host Eric Asher said that New Orleans Saints are not same team that beat Carolina Panthers twice.

If the Saints have a playoff rival, it's Minnesota.

It's more about whether the Vikings defence can keep Brees and Co quiet, helped by a raucous crowd and home-field advantage. More importantly, the Vikings are 7-1 under Mike Zimmer when having eight or more days to prepare for a team.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the point spread for Sunday's Divisional Round matchup between the Saints and Vikings has climbed to 5 in favor of Minnesota. "I know they knew I was a good player, they kept me there for four years".

Minnesota establishes the run game early while giving Case Keenum some easy throws to get his rhythm going. Cam Newton was 24-of-40 for 349 yards and two touchdowns.
