NFC Divisional Playoff New Orleans Saints at Minnesota Vikings: Preview and Prediction

2018 NFL Playoffs: History says Vikings are team most likely to suffer a heartbreaker

"Probably as some assistant in Kansas City, or something", he said, breaking into the hearty laugh for which he's been known during his time as Minnesota's "Garrulous Governor Chilly". Many analysts are saying this game will be much different as the Saints are much improved. They finished the season ranked first in fewest points allowed with 15.8 per game.

All the Saints have to do first is beat the Vikings. Blair Walsh always will take the blame for the Vikings' first-round playoff loss because of his missed field goal, but it was Peterson's fourth-quarter fumble that led to the drive that resulted in Seattle kicking the go-ahead field goal.

Childress, 61, said he was proud of the work he did as a two-time governor and that he plans to retire on his sprawling Stillwater estate, "Twelfth Man Ranch", named after a penalty called on the Vikings as they wrapped up their victory over the Saints in the NFC title game.

That's just fine for the fans, who are hoping New Orleans can gut-out a win in what shapes up to be a tough contest against the vaunted Minnesota defense.

Alert level raised after volcano eruption in the Philippines
Mayon's most destructive eruption was in February 1841, when lava flows buried a town and killed 1,200 people. It last erupted in 2014 , spewing lava and forcing thousands of people to evacuate.

That's what could help the Vikings become the first team in history to play for a Super Bowl in it's own stadium. We know what it is with that, we know our receiver situation, we know our defensive situation.

Against the suspect Saints run defence, Murray and McKinnon could be just as damaging as Ingram and Kamara.

Ingram added, "Yeah I feel like we didn't have an identity as a team maybe in week one". Payton says, "Tell you what, Drew, if you get us to the Super Bowl, I'll row the boat to Minneapolis".

"They have been running well together, and it opens it up for Drew to do his thing", Johnson said.

Pimco could add US Treasuries if market weakens further: Ivascyn
China, the biggest buyer of USA sovereign bonds, could be slowing down or even halting its purchases, according to a report. Rising yields mean lower prices, which in turn cut into returns for bond investors looking for capital appreciation.

Lattimore, the No. 11-overall draft pick out of Ohio State, has played well for the Saints in his rookie year and figures to shadow Diggs, who caught 64 passes for 849 yards and eight TDs this season.

The Saints then hosted the Carolina Panthers in the wild-card round and held on for a 31-26 win.

"I enjoyed the time I spent with those teams", he said of his interviews, "but you quickly get back into preparing for the Saints".

After last year's upsetting overtime loss at the Super Bowl against the Patriots, the Falcons enter this playoff season with one objective: don't repeat last year. The Vikings also lost their starting quarterback this season when Sam Bradford, who was acquired from the Eagles, re-injured his knee early in the season. They've been mixing him in and getting him some reps here and there.
