The Vikings waived tight end Kyle Carter on Saturday to make room for Bradford, who last played at Chicago on October 9 and returned to practice last week after recovering from a left knee injury. Minnesota will get just enough offense and force Drew Brees into a late-game turnover. It should be a fun game, likely one that's closer than their Week 1 matchup. Over the course of the season, the Vikings held opposing running backs to the fewest scrimmage yards in the NFL.
For those scoring at home, the Saints have now allowed four players to hit 100 receiving yards in the past two weeks, in addition to giving up 300-yard performances to quarterbacks in each contest. The difference for New Orleans here is whether they can put pressure on the Vikings front to get to Case Keenum as they have been one of the most balanced teams in the National Football League and if they can't keep their pivot upright this weekend it could be their downfield and spoil the chance to play in a Super Bowl at home.
Minnesota has defied the odds this season as they have had to rely on career backup Case Keenum to lead their offense but he has been excellent behind centre and has led to a breakout for a Vikings offense that can beat you down field with Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen and also between the numbers with Latavius Murray and Jerick McKinnon.
Offensively, the Saints averaged 28.3 points and 395.7 total yards (263.9 in passing and 131.9 in rushing) per game. In other words, the Vikings can be forgiven for losing that one given the devastating mid-game loss of their star running back.
Once the Saints said goodbye to Adrian Peterson, Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara took off in the Saints backfield.
The multi-faceted Saints (11-5) offense will be tested against the Vikings. "It's going to be a totally different game".

Minnesota won the NFC North for the second time in three years. They are stingy and play the game excellent.
They have to face one of the greatest quarterbacks of this generation though in Drew Brees, who picked apart the Carolina Panthers during the NFC Wild Card Game last weekend.
So who should they be rooting for?
