These two teams last met in Week 1, when Minnesota beat New Orleans by a final score of 29 to 19. A lot of things have changed since then.
Case Keenum is now the Vikings’ starting quarterback. Sam Bradford is now the backup after missing most of the season. Minnesota made Teddy Bridgewater a healthy scratch as the third string quarterback.
The Vikings are favored by four points in this rematch game.
Earlier today, I asked Eagles fans which team they prefer to face next Sunday. It’s almost a 50-50 split but the Saints have the slight lead.
So take your pick.
My advice is to root for a very grueling, ugly game where everyone gets exhausted and neither team looks good. Root for multiple overtimes.
Here is all the information you need to know in order to watch today’s game.
