Earlier this season, the Vikings faced the Saints at home for the opener on September 11, beating them 29-19.

The Minnesota Vikings found out will square off against the New Orleans Saints on January 14th at 3:40 pm central time for the rights to face off against the victor of the game between the Philadelphia Eagles and Atlanta Falcons according to the official National Football League website.

"I was getting trash talk from some former Saints players", Leber said Monday.

New Orleans' second first-round pick last spring, tackle Ryan Ramczyk out of Wisconsin, has played every snap for the Saints this season.

The Saints (12-5) rebounded from double-digit losses to the Vikings and New England Patriots in their first two games to win the NFC South. So, that just leaves the Saints, the team that the other hosts of the purpleJOURNAL Podcast (Joe Oberle and Luke Braun) have said they wanted to avoid in the playoffs (if possible) for really the past five to six episodes.

The last time the Vikings made the NFC Championship Game was in 2010 when they lost to the Saints 31-28 in overtime. He posted a career-high 143.0 passer rating while completing 27-of-32 passes for 346 yards, three touchdowns and no turnovers. Carolina seemed to focus Sunday on the stellar Saints running back tandem of Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara, and Drew Brees responded by shredding them for 376 yards while Ingram and Kamara combined for only 45 [rushing yards]. The Saints aren't very strong along the interior of their offensive line, and that could allow Linval Joseph and Tom Johnson to wreak havoc against both the run and the pass in this game. Four times prior teams that were hosting the Super Bowl that season have lost in the divisional round. In looking at the Saints right now, Graziano asked if they will more heavily run or throw the ball against the Vikings.

Minnesota has dominated the series at home against the Saints. However, they will make the trip without one of their best offensive linemen. And they've won a lot of games due to their resurgent defense, led by defensive end Cameron Jordan and cornerback Marshon Lattimore.

Bradford has resumed practicing, but he likely will remain on injured reserve this week with Teddy Bridgewater backing up Case Keenum at quarterback. The Vikings on the other hand had two players step up after Cook's season ending injury, with Latavius Murray and Jerick McKinnon.

The showcase of the Minnesota Vikings team, one of the best defenses in the NFL.

To set up the next exorcism, the Falcons will have to dump the Eagles, but honestly, does anyone really see Nick Foles leading his team to a playoff win against, well, anybody?
