Vikings undecided on whether to activate QB Sam Bradford

Vikings undecided on whether to activate QB Sam Bradford

Drew Brees will lead the New Orleans offense onto the field at Minnesota Sunday and commence the 13th postseason game of his stellar career, already armed with seven such victories and one Super Bowl ring for the Saints.

For the Vikings, it's all about silencing the ghosts from the past and proving the doubters wrong. The group finished the year 17 in total defense in terms of yards allowed, but were 10 in points allowed per game at 20.4.

Sources told the Star Tribune on Friday that Teddy Bridgewater is expected to be backup to quarterback to Case Keenum on Sunday.

Peterson is the Vikings' all-time leading rusher with 11,747 yards; he set the single-game record for rushing yards (296) against San Diego in 2007; and became one of only seven running backs in National Football League history to rush for more than 2,000 yards in a season when he did it in 2012.

Minnesota has weapons in the passing game in Stefon Diggs, Adam Thielen, and Kyle Rudolph, so it isn't just about stopping the other team.

Great odds and a high number for a receiver that has struggled to put up bigger numbers down the stretch.

Give the edge to the Vikings in this one, although don't expect them to run away with this game like they did in Week 1. And while the Panthers defense is no joke, they're also not on the same level as the Vikings' defense.

It's a matchup of well known established veterans versus a resurrected supposed reborn veteran under center as the New Orleans Saints travel to Minneapolis to take on the Vikings in a freezing cold uphill battle.

"I prepare for every game as if it's that magnitude", Brees said.

Atalanta Sosnoff Limited Co has invested 2.36% in Morgan Stanley (NYSE:MS). (NASDAQ:IMPV) to report earnings on February, 14. It increased, as 14 investors sold G shares while 54 reduced holdings. 116 funds opened positions while 640 raised stakes.


Now the Vikings have an opportunity to become the first team to play a Super Bowl on home turf, a feat the Saints would be happy to deny.

But all of those accomplishments didn't mean Peterson was going to remain the ideal running back in a league where being able to do several things well is now a requirement. Brees roots for the little guy, too. I've admired how he moves the ball down field and what kind of leader he is.

"I've been a fan of his for a long time", Keenum said.

The Minnesota Vikings activated quarterback Sam Bradford off injured reserve, the team announced on Saturday.

The Saints can accomplish this using trickery to keep Pro Bowl players like Eric Kendricks and Anthony Barr off their mark, preventing the duo from reacting swiftly and flowing downhill to blow up plays. "He's working in, but he's got a way to go still".

Home crowd and that defense should be enough for Vikings to inch past the Saints, who hope turnovers will help them score.
