Despite an impressive performance by Joe Webb last week, the Minnesota Vikings will retain Christian Ponder as the starting quarterback this week against the New Orleans Saints. Either would have a tough task to keep up with the Saints offense.

The New Orleans Saints have already clinched a playoff spot and will look to ride to another NFC South title. They will face the 2-11 Minnesota Vikings on Sunday. The Saints opened as seven point favorites, according to Odds Shark, and the line has stayed consistent so far this week. The Vikings are the home team, which makes it understandable that the Saints aren't favored by a larger margin.

The teams are going in opposite directions, as the Saints are on a five-game winning streak and the Vikings on a five-game losing streak. While the Saints have Drew Brees airing the ball out in impressive fashion, the Vikings are playing rookie quarterback Christian Ponder, who has had the ups and downs of a rookie. Joe Webb did relieve him during last week's game, but he isn't expected to start.

This game could easily go over the 51.5 over/under line, but the Saints would likely come out with victory.
