The Saints (13-3) have been taken one step closer to reaching the Super Bowl in the past two seasons. They were eliminated in the division round in 2018 and in the NFC championship game in 2019. The Saints look as if they’re ready to take the next step. The Saints won six of their final seven games and scored 34 points or more during that span. Wide receiver Michael Thomas, who set an all-time single-season record with 149 catches – along with 1,725 yards and nine touchdowns – is virtually unstoppable. Quarterback Drew Brees was incredible after returning from a broken thumb injury, he threw 25 touchdown passes and just two interceptions in the final nine games. The duo could exploit a weak Vikings’ secondary.
Minnesota quarterback Kirk Cousins produced arguably the best season of his career. His 26 touchdown passes and six interceptions aren’t his best, but his management of games showed considerable improvement. The Vikings (10-6) didn’t need Cousins to win games for them when they had running back Dalvin Cook available. Cook rushed for 1,135 yards and 13 touchdowns, but missed the final two games of the season with a shoulder injury. He’s expected to play against the Saints. The Vikings’ defensive front-seven, led by defensive end Danielle Hunter’s 14.5 sacks, is very good. The problem is on the back end, where corner back Xavier Rhodes has declined.
