Zimmer: No decision on status of Vikings QB Bradford

The march of time made it almost impossible this week to find a Vikings player who even remembers the team's gut-wrenching loss in the 2009-10 NFC championship game at New Orleans - defensive end Brian Robison, still effective nine years later, was the only current team member actually there - and completely impossible to find a player who understands what that game meant to Vikings fans.

The Saints finished 10th on defense, but were also the number two offense (391.2 yards per game and 28 points per game) and are very hard to stop once they get into a rhythm. If they beat the Saints and win one more game, the Vikings will qualify for the Super Bowl, which will be played at their own U.S. Bank Stadium. 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. "I mean everything is, we know ourselves now so it's going to be a different game", explained Kamara.

One has to figure that Peterson will watch Sunday's game wondering what would have happened if he had been able to remain with the Saints this season, or if he had long ago been willing to become a more complete running back for the Vikings.

"For me and Jerick, we're looking forward to the challenge (of Sunday)".

The Saints went 11-5 and won their opening round playoff game over Carolina. Lattimore finished tied for fifth in the league with five interceptions this season.

Cold temperatures are back with light snow coming our way
Baltimore health department Commissioner Leana Wen issued a "Code Blue" advisory from Saturday night through Monday morning. Visibility could be reduced under 1 mile at times as snow falls through the overnight hours and into Sunday morning.

Pat Shurmur wanted: The Vikings' offensive coordinator is in high demand for head coaching vacancies this year.

Ground swell: Look past quarterbacks Case Keenum and Drew Brees, and each team has a capable running attack. Despite the talent and experience of Drew Brees, the Saints offense was below average on third down this season converting only 37.1 percent of their chances - 20th in the NFL. Payton's offense with Brees at the trigger runs with uncanny efficiency when the passing game is going well and the Saints are as reliant on their running backs as any team in league history, with more than 3,000 yards from scrimmage coming from that position. "That we couldn't have nice things", said Herb Kuehl, 70, of Roseville.

The duo of Latavius Murray and Jerick McKinnon might not get you out of your seat with their moves, but they are far more reliable and complete.

Minnesota coach Mike Zimmer says he hasn't made a decision regarding the status of quarterback Sam Bradford, who has practiced the last two weeks in an attempt to be activated from the injured reserve list. "He's working back in, getting his feet wet".

Home crowd and that defense should be enough for Vikings to inch past the Saints, who hope turnovers will help them score.
