Louisiana and Minnesota Senators have friendly bet on Saints-Vikings game

The Vikings probably won't have three quarterbacks active on Sunday. Both have since been lost for the remainder of the campaign with injuries. Yes, he was the league's seventh-highest-rated passer while leading a 13-3 team, but he failed to pass for 300 yards in each of his last seven starts and his sack rate exploded down the stretch. The Vikings have used Latavius Murray and Jerick McKinnon to fill in for Cook, who had 127 rushing yards in last time out. "I'd like to remind my friend Senator Kennedy that the Vikings kicked off this season with a win against New Orleans-and I know we can do it again!" said Klobuchar. Furthermore, Minnesota has not won a playoff game since 2009 - when Brett Favre was quarterbacking them. The Vikings, who boast the NFL's No. 1 defense, have a better secondary than Carolina.

After ripping off more than 100 yards rushing in eight consecutive games following the team's October 10 decision to trade Adrian Peterson, New Orleans has been held to fewer than 100 yards rushing in four of its past five games, including a paltry 41 against the Panthers last week. Ingram and Kamara were selected to the Pro Bowl after they tallied more than 1,500 yards from scrimmage. The fact that he was concussed also makes the horrendous pick he threw late in that game to seal the game for the Saints a little less egregious.

While the Vikings' defense is No. 2 on third-and-long, Minnesota's offense is far less effective when put in a bind.

They will have an advantage against the Saints on third-and-short as New Orleans' defense ranks 22nd in first downs allowed in those situations. That tied them with the Oakland Raiders (6-10), the Cincinnati Bengals (7-9) and the Cleveland Browns (0-16).

For the most part, the Saints have stuck with the run - even in games where the running game has had its issues. Sunday will be his first playoff game.
