Saints-Vikings Preview
 
Given their lackluster road record, it's no surprise the New Orleans Saints are extra focused on securing at least one home game in the playoffs.

Trying to move a step closer to that goal, the Saints could be in position to secure the NFC South title Sunday with a win over the Minnesota Vikings, who are expected to have Adrian Peterson back from a high ankle sprain.

New Orleans (10-3) is tied with San Francisco in the race for the NFC's No. 2 seed, but the 49ers have the inside track because of an 8-2 conference record. The Saints are 6-3 in NFC games.

"There's some (scoreboard watching) because that two-seed would be important. Having been in that position before we know how valuable it is," offensive tackle Zach Strief said.

New Orleans will be able to clinch its third division title in six seasons by beating Minnesota if Atlanta loses to Jacksonville on Thursday night.

we need this game. I'm nervous because it reminds me a little too much of the St. Louis game. Away...in a dome....against a team with nothing to lose.....

We have the 7th best road record in the NFL, and 3 of the teams above us have played 1 less road game.
