McFeely: Dirty secret: Do Vikings fans secretly want them to fail?

McFeely: Dirty secret: Do Vikings fans secretly want them to fail?

We had read - or in some cases, written - that story countless times before. And the running game is much improved. In other games this season, the Vikings used Rhodes to stick top wideouts from the Steelers' Antonio Brown (four catches, 54 yards), the Buccaneers' Mike Evans (4-36) and the Falcons' Julio Jones (2-26). 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.

The Eagles haven't played either the Vikings or the Saints this season.

As noted before, Christian McCaffrey found success against the Saints in the playoffs, so the Vikings should rip a page out of the Panthers' playbook and feature McKinnon often.

The "home" team for the Super Bowl is determined on an alternating basis, and the AFC team is scheduled to be the home club for Super Bowl LII.

Bradford aggravated his knee against the Bears and was ineffective before being replaced late in the first half by Keenum, who has started every game since.

That's just fine for the fans, who are hoping New Orleans can gut-out a win in what shapes up to be a tough contest against the vaunted Minnesota defense. That means that the victor of this afternoon's game between the Saints and Vikings will have to go through Philadelphia if they want to make it to the big game.

He was also faced with the death of coach Robert Follis, and one day after that, the death of one of Hall's best friends. Hopefully Belfort will be able to find another fight soon, and end his awesome UFC career in style, like he deserves.

If the Saints want to avenge their Week 1 loss to the Vikings they will have to give the Vikings a heavy dose of Ingram and Kamara.

Ingram added, "Yeah I feel like we didn't have an identity as a team maybe in week one". Not only do the Vikings appear to have a team capable of winning their first Super Bowl, 51 years and counting, they can do so by exacting sweet revenge when it really means something.

There were some who didn't like it but, even if you remain a Peterson fan, you have to admit his departure was the best thing to happen to this offense. Thomas, in just his second year in the league out of Ohio State, finished sixth in the league in receiving with 1245 yards. This is going to be a very exciting game and while the Vikes have home field here I think the line is moving in the wrong direction as this one should be a field goal game.

"I enjoyed the time I spent with those teams", he said of his interviews, "but you quickly get back into preparing for the Saints". They've been mixing him in and getting him some reps here and there.

Case Keenum has been a very good quarterback, starting in place of both Sam Bradford and Teddy Bridgewater.
