Daily Norseman Examines The Saints' Losses This Season

If the Vikings want to win Sunday, a sound idea is to examine what other teams have done to beat the Saints. Our Vikings blog, Daily Norseman, has done just that. First, they examined the Saints' loss to the Cowboys, and found that the Cowboys won because they built an early lead, shut down the running game, and pressured the quarterback.

So, the keys to beating the Saints are easy. . .jump out early, stop them from running, get after Drew Brees.  Sounds like a pretty consistent formula, right?

Well, one would have thought so. . .until the Saints' Week 16 match-up against the 2-12 Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

For the rest of the story, check out the breakdown at Daily Norseman.
