NFL Picks And Predictions Week 15: Saints Vs. Vikings

The Saints expect to keep rolling in their quest to keep up with the Packers when they take on the Vikings Sunday.

Reaching the playoffs, winning a division and preparing sufficiently for a postseason run are the main goals for all NFL teams coming out of training camp.

For years those were just pipe dreams for the New Orleans Saints, but lately the beloved bayou ballers have been a regular in the playoffs. They put themselves in contention for another charge at a Super Bowl title with last week's road win at Tennessee, clinching their third consecutive playoff berth, and now have one more away game left in the regular season in Sunday's showdown with the Minnesota Vikings at the Metrodome.

The CBSSports.com experts and the ESPN.com experts all think the Saints will win this one.  Peter King thinks so as well:

Well, Jared Allen is hot, and he really wants the sack record, and the kid quarterback is pretty good and showing good signs of playing well when playing hurt, and ... oh, stop it. This is Drew Brees coming to town. And the four-headed running game. And the Minnesota secondary. Christian Ponder's not scoring 35 Sunday, and he would have to do that to be competitive in this game.
