2018 NFL Playoffs: History says Vikings are team most likely to suffer a heartbreaker

"This is the best season we have had since I was in grade school", said Bill Atwell of Northeast Philadelphia. If that occurs, the Saints could be in the NFC Championship game next week. The Vikings are first in the NFL in points allowed per game at just 15.8 and first in the league in yards per game allowed at 275.9.

And Saints rookie running back Alvin Kamara, likely the Offensive Rookie of the Year, had more than 1,500 yards from scrimmage after picking up just 38 total yards against the Vikings.

How can I watch the Saints and Vikings?

They have caused problems for opposing offenses all season en route to helping give the Saints the 10th-best scoring defense in the NFL.

Only seven teams have made the playoffs in a year where the Super Bowl is in their home stadium (including the Houston Texans a year ago).

The Baggies secured their first top-flight win in 21 games with a 2-0 result against Brighton and Hove Albion on Saturday. However he adds 'His biggest misfortune I would say, is Sam Allardyce , who was my coach at Newcastle United '.

During the elder Jordan's career, he became a six-time Pro Bowl selection from the 1986-91 seasons with the team. The Vikings' defense has feasted off the noise and encouragement of their fans, holding opponents to just 12.5 per game in their building and holding them to 23 conversions on 99 third-down opportunities, or just 23.2 percent. "I think you probably use (the last spot) for somebody on special teams or one of the lineman". Compiling game outcomes and FiveThirtyEight's Elo ratings, writers Jeff Hargarten and MaryJo Webster revealed that among the teams left in the current postseason, no one has lost more playoff games they were predicted to win since 1966 than - wait for it - the Vikings. We found out who we are and we're going to go there with confidence and a swagger and just play the ball we know how to play. We know what it is with that, we know our receiver situation, we know our defensive situation. There has been a lot of talk about how the Vikings have a chance to be the first team to play a Super Bowl on their home field, but Zimmer isn't looking that far ahead. The Ohio State product had eight catches for 131 yards last week against Carolina.

Bradford went 27 of 32 for 346 yards and three touchdowns in Minnesota's 29-19 season-opening win over New Orleans.

Sam Bradford was Minnesota's signal-caller that day, and he connected early and often with wideouts Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen, who torched the Saints secondary. It will be hard for them to contain everybody, and the guess here is that Rudolph and McKinnon are the ones who take advantage.
