It almost seems as if everybody is counting out Minnesota. Which is a horrible thing to do considering they're the best defense in the NFL playoffs, Case Keenum has been red hot and won't be stopping his fire anytime soon and especially not in the most important time of his life, his first playoffs. Although the vikings already beat the saints week 1, most will argue they didn't have their full team, AP was their, Alvin Kamara didn't get enough touches, and Marshon Lattimore didn't break out yet. Although it may be a close game next week I still think the vikings will pull through. Kamara will be on lock with the vikings athletic linebackers, and the interior run will be shut down with the vikings great Defensive Tackles/ends. You may also argue that Drew Brees will shred the vikings defense with Micheal Thomas, this will be simply countered with one of the best corners in the League Xavier Rhodes. The main x factor of this game is of course how Case Keenum will perform in the playoffs. In my humbled opinion I think he will do amazing, he is one of the toughest competitors in the league and always has been all of his life. I guarantee a vikings W next week vs the Saints.
