NFC Divisional Round open thread: Saints at Vikings

Time to finish the Divisional Round.

NFL: NFC Divisional Playoff-New Orleans Saints at Minnesota Vikings Brad Rempel-USA TODAY Sports

Congratulations to the Jacksonville Jaguars for upsetting the Pittsburgh Steelers and advancing to the AFC Championship for a date with the New England Patriots.

Now it’s time for the NFC to crown its second conference finalist.

The Minnesota Vikings host the New Orleans Saints in the final game of Divisional Round Weekend. Minnesota finished the regular season with an impressive 13-3 record and has only lost one game since dropping their Week 4 contest to the Detroit Lions. In fact, that was the last time they lost on home field, too.

The Saints come marching in (sorry, I had to) having handed their division rival Carolina Panthers a decisive loss in the Wild Card round.

Can the Saints pull off yet another upset in these crazy playoffs, or will the Vikings defense be just too much to overcome.

Come watch with us!
