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. When the Saints travel to play the Vikings you better stop what you're doing and watch this game.
That's not a good sign leading into the divisional round against the Minnesota Vikings, who lost just one game in U.S. Bank Stadium this year. But we found out who we are. "I mean everything is, we know ourselves now so it's going to be a different game", explained Kamara.
"I would very surprised if (Zimmer) dresses three quarterbacks for this game, " said Joe Theismann, a longtime National Football League analyst who won a Super Bowl as Washington's starting quarterback in the 1982 season. He won't be one Sunday, however. "We are definitley looking forward to playing those guys". The Falcon's defence is a force to be reckoned with; especially going into their game this weekend with the Eagles, a team that relies on their running game. The Ohio State product had eight catches for 131 yards last week against Carolina.
Bradford hasn't played in a full game since throwing for 346 yards and three touchdowns in the opener against the Saints. Lattimore has five interceptions on the season and feels much more confident than he did when he faced the Vikings in the season opener.

"I don't know how the Boston Globe would know because I haven't made any decisions yet", Zimmer said.
"You'd be a fool to think Drew Brees is flying under the radar", defensive tackle Tom Johnson said.
The Saints have improved dramatically on defense and possess one of the league's top offenses headlined by playmakers Drew Brees, Michael Thomas, Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara. They're the first pair of running backs on the same team to each have at least 1,500 yards from scrimmage in a season.
"I've been a fan of his for a long time", Keenum said.
For the Vikings, Case Keenum became the starting quarterback and won 12 games to lead Minnesota to a 13-3 overall record.
The duo of Latavius Murray and Jerick McKinnon might not get you out of your seat with their moves, but they are far more reliable and complete.
