Vikings-Saints tip sheet
Personnel to watch…
Jared Allen(notes), Vikings: Do the Saints have to slide protection to Allen; do they have to keep the back in the protection scheme, etc.? Defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier wants to rush four and play seven in coverage.
Malcolm Jenkins(notes), Saints: Steps in for Darren Sharper(notes) at the free safety position. Let’s see how he plays the deep middle of the field and if he can jump routes in the passing game — like Sharper did.
Greg Camarillo(notes), Vikings: Interesting to see what type of relationship the Vikes’ new WR has with Brett Favre(notes) on the field. Receivers have to go make plays for Favre to gain his confidence.
Pierre Thomas(notes), Saints: Have to score TDs in the red zone — especially inside of the 5-yard line. Tough front seven in Minnesota to run on.
Antoine Winfield(notes), Vikings: Test him early and often. Still one of the best CBs in the league when it comes to the run game, but let’s see how he matches up with the Saints’ talent at WR.
