The New Orleans Saints can put some distance in the NFC South race with a win over the Minnesota Vikings.
The New Orleans Saints have rattled off five wins in a row in their quest to win the NFC South. Quarterback Drew Brees has been virtually unstoppable on the run, and the Saints can put some distance between themselves and the Atlanta Falcons in the NFC South with a victory over the Vikings on Sunday. This isn't the same Vikings the Saints have battled with in the past two seasons, however.
The Vikings limp into the game with the Saints having lost their last five games. The Vikings might have been able to snap their streak against the Detroit Lions last week, but wound up losing on a Joe Webb fumble on a very controversial play where Webb's face mask was grabbed, but there was no flag thrown. Rookie quarterback Christian Ponder was dinged up in the game, but both he and running back Adrian Peterson are expected to be available for the game.
Game Date/Time: Sunday, December 18th; 1:00pm ET
Location: Mall Of America Field, Minneapolis, MN
