NFC Divisional Playoffs: Three things to watch in Saints-Vikings


NFC Divisional Playoffs: Three things to watch in Saints-Vikings

They have wagered some favorites from each city, as the buildup continues.

Brett Favre's iron man streak of 297 consecutive starts, and ultimately his career, came to an end late in the 2010 season when, playing for the Vikings at TCF Bank Stadium - a move to the great outdoors necessitated by the collapse of the Metrodome roof - he suffered a concussion against the Bears when his head was slammed on the frigid field. The mayor says it's time for payback.

As the Saints prepare to take on the Vikings this weekend, the mayors of New Orleans and Minneapolis are engaging in some social media trash talk.

"We've seen a little bit more stacked boxes, safeties coming", right tackle Ryan Ramczyk said.

Senators make "Cake and Ice Cream Bet". "I look forward to enjoying a Louisiana king cake after a sweet win Sunday".

Several Saints fans said either way the game goes, Landrieu should send the king cake.

Where the Saints have an edge is on third-and-long.

"Probably 31 to 28".

But the New Orleans Saints' running game has been slowing down over the past month.

"I think it's going to be three points, I'm gonna give it to the Vikings though", said Mical Williams of New Orleans. Prior to that, the Saints had won four straight against the Vikes, including an overtime victory in the 2009 NFC championship game. He became eligible to practice before the Vikings' Week 17 game, but didn't until the following Tuesday.

Where: U.S Bank Stadium, which is hosting its first National Football League playoff game three weeks before hosting Super Bowl LII. Bridgewater spoke to ESPN in the Vikings' locker room and said he did not know if either he or Bradford would be active Sunday, and which of them would be selected as the No. 2 quarterback.

In his tweet, Frey told Landrieu when it comes to a bet, he's got a deal and Frey is putting up some Minneapolis raised wild rice.He also thanked Landrieu in advance for his generosity.
