Minnesota beat New Orleans 29-19 on the opening day of the season at US Bank Stadium. So far that has worked: Reiff has started 15 of 16 games and allowed only four sacks. He'll start his first National Football League playoff game this weekend when the Vikings host the New Orleans Saints in the divisional round. "They had some really talented kids".
Shirtless at his locker following Friday's practice, Vikings running back Jerick McKinnon let everyone know that he has a bone to pick.
"They have done a phenomenal job this season", McKinnon said.
Here's the amusing thing about the Saints season finale loss against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers; If they'd won, they would have played the Atlanta Falcons in the Wild Card round. I study him just about every offseason, just looking at things that he does well mechanically, decision-making.
"[Everson] Griffen, B Rob [Brian Robison], Danielle [Hunter], they're really good", Reiff said. The punting and kicking game will be a significant factor in Sunday's bout.
Griffen, tied for fourth in the National Football League with a career-high 13 sacks this season, missed one game in November due to plantar fasciitis suffered October 29 against the Browns. "You have to be on top of your game".
Bradford also had success against the Saints way back in Week 1. He said wrestling techniques he learned still help him.
"I remember I talked to him after the Pittsburgh game", Kingsbury recalled.
Aadhaar adds new security layer with 16-digit 'Virtual ID'
But how the classification would be done remains a grey area, and clearly there would be overlaps, breaches in these interfaces. So, people do not need to share the actual 12-digit biometric ID if they are really anxious about the privacy of their data.
"It was always a tough game", he said.
Last week you probably noticed plenty of stories about how the Los Angeles Rams were going to make a run at the NFC.
"A lot of guys who are starters don't think they need it anymore because they're getting reps on the field", Belch told Cronin. "Coming up here, it's always a tough place to play".
"King cake for everybody", said Saints fan Jack Long.
The Saints are just 1-6 SU and 2-5 ATS in their last seven postseason road games per the OddsShark NFL Database. Head coach Mike Zimmer puts the team in great position. They'll want to try to reign in any big plays passing, that means a specific focus on Pro Bowl wide receiver Adam Thielan. But years of very bad overall defensive play by the Saints caused Jordan to be largely overlooked. "The Saints are my team".
The stakes are high when the Vikings and Saints face off this weekend. The son of former Vikings tight end Steve Jordan impacts the game beyond just pass rushing.
