Zimmer hasn't decided on Bradford's status against the Saints

The Vikings last took the field for a game on December 31 and defeated the Bears 23-10 at home to secure a bye through the first round and the opportunity to host the Saints in the Divisional round on Sunday.

Zimmer told reporters that Bradford is working his way with the other quarterbacks but "has a ways to go" after completing his fifth practice since returning last week while competing for practice time with Teddy Bridgewater. They have the NFL's best defense, and quarterback Case Keenum has been playing well for long enough that it's harder to see him laying a stink bomb in the playoffs than continuing to do the job.

Coleman has quietly been a major contributor to the Saints' offense this year as both a pass-catcher and a blocker (the Saints led the National Football League in both yards per rush and yards per pass attempt).

"I've got a lot of love for a lot of people there", Line said.

The teams facing off this weekend are quite different from the squads that took to the field on September 11 in what was a 29-19 Vikings win.

The NFL determined the allegations to be true in 2012, which led to Saints head coach Sean Payton's suspension for the entire 2012 season, as well as a handful of fines and other sanctions. "You know, obviously Dalvin had a good outing against them and ran the ball really good". Bradford was back for the Bears game, but hobbled around in the first half before being pulled for Keenum.

Look for at least 300 yards out of Brees as he picks apart the highly touted Minnesota defense by going to Kamara in the screen game and Thomas on deep routes as his main outlets.

Despite the presence of Brees, the Saints must be balanced on offense and prevent big plays on defense. Zimmer gave a brief rundown, starting with Drew Brees. Hill probably will make his sixth start at right tackle as the Vikings keep Mike Remmers at right guard and possibly move Joe Berger over to left guard. Plucked off the Jaguars' practice squad late last season, he's been one of the bigger surprises on the team this year.

The Falcons have won three of their last four road games, and Philadelphia has totaled less than 220 yards of offense in its last two home games. RB Mark Ingram II set career highs in yards rushing (1,124) and yards from scrimmage (1,540) ...

Keenum started 10 games over the next two years before being traded to the Rams in 2015. They're two wins away from reaching the Super Bowl.

Thomas, who was held to five catches for 45 yards by the Vikings in their Week 1 meeting, was passed off between defensive backs rather than shadowed by Rhodes exclusively.
