New Orleans Saints at Minnesota Vikings - 1/14/18 NFL Pick, Odds, and Prediction

Wide receiver Nelson Agholor and the Eagles like to play an aggressive style of football and take chances. It has worked well this season with Philadelphia one win away from a trip to the Super Bowl

The Minnesota Vikings managed to take full advantage of the bye week to rest up some of their veterans in preparation for their NFC Divisional Game versus the New Orleans Saints on Sunday. The Vikings' defense has feasted off the noise and encouragement of their fans, holding opponents to just 12.5 per game in their building and holding them to 23 conversions on 99 third-down opportunities, or just 23.2 percent.

Unwanted in Minnesota, Adrian Peterson signed with the Saints, who determined after Week 4 that the 12th leading rusher in National Football League history wasn't as effective as the Ingram-Kamara tag team.

Although the Vikings (13-3) are still in the hunt for the Super Bowl this season and will meet the Saints again in a divisional playoff game Sunday at the "ChurroDome", fans vow they are content to enjoy the experience and to live with the fact that, if the Vikings lose, it will be because the other team was better.

"We've been very outspoken, since we found out we're having the Super Bowl here ... we wanted to be the first team to play in our own Super Bowl", said Rudolph. "I mean everything is, we know ourselves now so it's going to be a different game", explained Kamara. Drew Brees is looking to win his 2nd Super Bowl but he's going to have to get by Case Keenum and the ruthless Vikings.

Portland business owner from Haiti shocked by alleged Trump comments
Two Republican senators who were in the room have said they do not recall the president making those remarks specifically. It's a crushing blow to people who thought there might be a place for them in the world to escape poverty and oppression.

The Saints defeated Carolina, 31-26, in the wild-card round to advance to Sunday's game. "We have the Saints and we can't afford to look past that".

"I don't know how the Boston Globe would know because I haven't made any decisions yet", Zimmer said. Lattimore finished tied for fifth in the league with five interceptions this season. Payton was the offensive coordinator in Dallas while Zimmer was the defensive coordinator. There's going to be a running back I want to destroy. The Saints used their potent rushing attack featuring Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara during the regular season. They're the first pair of running backs on the same team to each have at least 1,500 yards from scrimmage in a season. If there's one thing you can say about the Saints it might be that their biggest contributors are rookies, and they might not play as well on the road. It remains uncertain whether the Vikings will dress three quarterbacks against the Saints and whether Teddy Bridgewater, who has been the backup for starter Case Keenum, will continue in that role.

The duo of Latavius Murray and Jerick McKinnon might not get you out of your seat with their moves, but they are far more reliable and complete. "He's working back in, getting his feet wet".

So who should they be rooting for?
