The NFL playoffs are here and the Saints are ready to host yet again.

The Minnesota Vikings head to the Mercedes-Benz Superdome Sunday for the Wild Card round of the NFC playoff bracket. The Saints (13-3) lost the tiebreakers to both the San Francisco 49ers and Green Bay Packers, who earned the top two seeds and first-round byes despite finishing with the same record.

It's the first playoff game in the Superdome since the infamous no-call game in the NFC Championship last season. The Vikings (10-6) are the NFC's lowest seed, but carry some playoff demons of their own. The Saints-Vikings matchup in the Divisional Round of the 2017 season ended with a stunning touchdown to Stefon Diggs as time expired to give the Vikings the win. Minnesota has a new quarterback since that game, with Kirk Cousins taking over for Case Keenum the past two seasons. The last time they met was Week 8 of the 2018 season, a game the Saints won 30-20 in Minneapolis.

Re: Saints vs. Vikings NFC Wild Card Game Day Thread

Never know what can happen week to week and Vikings are healthier than they have been. That said, we are playing really good football right now and cant you see what a difference our offense looks like when our oline is healthy? Peat has looked really good since returning. I think we are going to win and it could be 38-24 with vikings scoring a late meaningless touchdown.

I want a total beat down of these bums; I want the Saints to live rent free in their empty floor plan heads for years!
