Vikings QB Case Keenum 'is the guy' for Minnesota

Postseason History: Saints: making 11th overall playoff appearance (11th since merger), 8-9 in postseason play (8-9 since merger)...Vikings: making 29th overall playoff appearance (27th since merger), 19-28 in postseason play (17-26 since merger)... We found out who we are and we're going to go there with confidence and a swagger and just play the ball we know how to play. "We're just focusing on our game plan and getting ready to go out there and execute". For example, quick passes to running back Jerrick McKinnon out of the backfield could go a long way toward winning this game.

Pat Shurmur wanted: The Vikings' offensive coordinator is in high demand for head coaching vacancies this year.

What makes this Saints team different from the ones that have come up short since 2009 is their ability to run the ball with Mark Ingram and rookie Alvin Kamara. Drew Brees and the Saints offense can still put up points in bunches, and might be the rare team to have some favorable matchups against the Minnesota defense. Stud tight end Kyle Rudolph is still short of rude health, despite a week off on the treatment table, so the Saints will fancy limiting the production of one of the most efficient receiving troikas in the league. And as the team has talked openly of finishing the season at home, players know there's a benefit, however nebulous it might be, of being so familiar with the stadium.

Little big men: Keenum is 6-foot-1. Keenum admitted he follows Brees because he is a smaller quarterback. "I sat on the floor and I didn't move for an hour", said Johnson. "He's another Texas quarterback that has done well".

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Sam Bradford is suited up for the Minnesota Vikings as the backup to quarterback Case Keenum, with Teddy Bridgewater on the inactive list for the divisional round playoff game against New Orleans. Brees roots for the little guy, too.

"I've just got this feeling", she said this week.

Keenum, Bradford and Bridgewater are free agents in 2018. The Vikings were third best in the NFL converting 43.5 percent of their third downs compared to a Saints defense that ranked 27th in the league by allowing 41.5 percent of third downs to be converted against them.
