As a long suffering NO Saints fan, my Saints are ONE game away from playing in the Super Bowl. The Saints were close about two years ago but got beat by the Chicago Bears.
They play the Minnesota Vikings this Sunday and I think they can win the game. The Vikes have a pretty good defense but I see some weakness in the secondary.
If the Saints offensive line can give the QB good protection, Drew Brees will be able to pick them apart.
Keys for the Saints to win the game are:
1. Establish a running game, keeping the Viking defense honest on the pass rush. If the Saints OL can give the QB time to sit back in the pocket, Brees will find the open receiver.
2. Contain the Viking running game. Adrian Peterson is a good RB and can burn you. If the Saints can keep the Vike running game in check, it will be a long night for Farve and the Vikes.
3. Score more points than the Vikings.
