Will Vikings or Saints receivers see a shadow on Sunday?

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 rank at the top of the league in both offensive and defensive third down percentage, converting 43.5 percent of all third downs (3rd in the NFL) and allowing 25.2 percent of third downs against (1st). No other team has more than five home wins in the postseason in that time.

The NFL determined the allegations to be true in 2012, which led to Saints head coach Sean Payton's suspension for the entire 2012 season, as well as a handful of fines and other sanctions. "If I perform like I know I can we're going to be good".

There's good reason Ingram and Kamara have generated so much attention, as their emergence has taken the Saints from somewhat of an afterthought at the beginning of the season to a legitimate Super Bowl contender, and maybe the biggest threat to the Vikings out of the NFC.

A number of Vikings players and coaches accused the Saints of deliberately trying to knock Favre out of the game at the time, but it was only until years later that the punishment for this game was issued out. Let's not forget the Saints played in the most hard division in football and they still were first in yards-per-play differential. The Saints surrendered 4.4 yards per rush during the regular season, and they had some trouble with backs Christian McCaffrey and James White in pass defense. New Orleans had just eight possessions in the first meeting and that didn't work out well. Zimmer gave a brief rundown, starting with Drew Brees. This shows the Saints can beat you in many different ways. Hill probably will make his sixth start at right tackle as the Vikings keep Mike Remmers at right guard and possibly move Joe Berger over to left guard.

A more recent example came last season.

For both teams, really.

The 22-year-old has only had two such games in his short professional career, but he's picked up over 100 total yards in seven contests since his team's October 22 win over the Green Bay Packers. Defensive end Everson Griffen missed one game because of injury and safety Andrew Sendejo sat out three games. The Vikings have used Latavius Murray and Jerick McKinnon to fill in for Cook, who had 127 rushing yards in last time out.

With all the focus on Minnesota wide receivers Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen and their matchup against the terrific young corners in the Saints secondary, Keenum will rely on a safety valve to have some success through the air.

It's no surprise considering they have an underrated defense and an experienced, Super Bowl-winning quarterback on offense, along with Pro Bowl running backs Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara, also known as Thunder and Lightning.
