Five of the previous 10 teams that led in that category went on to the Super Bowl, winning three times. In what might be the biggest game of the divisional round, the No. 2 Minnesota Vikings will host the No. 4 New Orleans Saints in the final game of the week. He is asking for them to be louder than they have ever been at U.S. Bank Stadium. It's their first time hosting the NFC Championship Game since January 2005, when they won to advance to the Super Bowl.

The Saints enter Sunday's contest coming off a 31-26 win over the Carolina Panthers last week.

The New Orleans Saints are on a mission. Chris Hawkey is also excited and gave Vikings fans something to do who cant wait until Sunday. What transpired, of course, was a pauper-to-prince metamorphosis, a 13-3 regular-season record, and number two seeding in the NFC with a first-round bye to match.

After a signature slothful start to the season - and injuries to the preferred Teddy Bridgewater and Sam Bradford - it was widely expected that Keenum would trip over his laces under center and lead Minnesota to the bottom rung of the NFC North.

The New Orleans Saints defense has grown and grown all season long.

Minnesota has built an all-world defense, which number one overall, only allowing 275.9 yards per game, but also only 15.8 points per game.

So at least the Seahawks' bye is in a more optimal time of late October, close to the midway point of the 16-game regular season. The Washington Redskins play the Jacksonville Jaguars at home next season, and some wondered if that game could be played in.

Kickoff is shortly after 4:30 p.m. ET. The available live streams for this game can be found on NFL.com and on FuboTV. Lost for the season, it was roundly assumed that his understudy, Latavius Murray, who was underwhelming in exhibition games, would not be able to revive what had been a awful Minnesota running game the year before. "I mean everything is, we know ourselves now so it's going to be a different game", explained Kamara.

According to OddsShark, the Vikings will be laying four points to the visiting Saints. But while the New Orleans Saints' defensive unit is much-improved, the Minnesota Vikings are just flat out terrific on that side of the ball.

The Vikings went 7-1 at home during the regular season, and they beat the Saints in the opener 29-19.

Here, we see young Vikings fans debating their team's chances in the playoffs.

The Saints and Vikings will square off again on Sunday in the National Football League playoffs, kicking off at 3:40 p.m. CST at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.
