Saints WR Brandon Coleman to miss playoff game vs Vikings

Cam Newton clears Instagram account

The Minnesota Vikings and their fans are getting ready to take on the New Orleans Saints in its first playoff game at U.S. Bank Stadium.

On the other side, Minnesota quarterback Case Keenum is making his playoff debut after the most improbable National Football League breakout season since Kurt Warner played his way out of a grocery store job.

With all that said the oddsmakers are favoring the Vikings in this one, largely do to their defense which ranked first in total yards and points allowed. This is not to say the Vikings don't get plenty of credit for creating their own fortune. This season, Dallas led a group of five teams from the conference that did not return to the postseason and two of them fired their head coach. It's a much different Saints offense than the one the Vikings faced early in the season. "If I perform like I know I can we're going to be good".

One of the more exciting match-ups to keep an eye on in this game will be Saints Pro Bowl receiver Michael Thomas lining up against Vikings first-team All-Pro cornerback Xavier Rhodes.

On Saturday, the Vikings announced they activated Sam Bradford from injured reserve and waived tight end Kyle Carter.

The most hard challenge of the night falls on the Vikings defensive front who will try to slay the two-headed monster in Ingram and Kamara. "I just think me and Latavius have done a good job of complementing each other throughout the season and just making sure both of us are going with each other".

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". Minnesota's defense is elite in all three levels. New Orleans had just eight possessions in the first meeting and that didn't work out well.

If the Vikings defensive front holds, they could force Brees to get away from the balanced approach and revert back to the pass-heavy offensive play-calling the Saints are known for.

Nonetheless, when the Vikings started 5-0 in 2016, the assumption was another division title was on the way. Plucked off the Jaguars' practice squad late last season, he's been one of the bigger surprises on the team this year. Since then though, both teams have changed drastically. Kamara rushed the ball seven times and Mark Ingram had six attempts for 17 yards. Case Keenum started the next three games.

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.

In Week 1, Adam Thielen had nine receptions for 157 yards. Bradford last played at Chicago on October 9. The latest they could make a move would be the week leading into the Super Bowl on January 24, should they still be playing.
