, and now we can finally sit back and treat ourselves to the most important game of the weekend.Yes, it’s time for Sunday Night Football, and this week your Minnesota Vikings are hosting the New Orleans Saints at U.S. Bank Stadium. Both of these teams are on a bit of a roll coming into this one, and the Vikings are missing some pieces, so we’ll see if they can maintain their positive momentum.Here is everything you need to know.Time: Sunday, 28 October, 7:20 PM Central timeLocation: U.S. Bank Stadium, Minneapolis, MinnesotaTelevision coverage: KARE-11 in the Twin Cities, NBC affiliates across the countryRadio coverage: Vikings Radio Network, Sirius Channel 83, XM Channel 225Line: Saints -2, Over/under 55Prediction: Saints 34 Long Sleeve Cameron Smith Jersey
, Vikings 31Three keys1) Get pressure on Drew Brees – This is going to be as big a key as any in this one. The Vikings are hurting in the secondary, and even though it appears that Xavier Rhodes will play, he might not be 100%. That means that the big guys up front are going to have to get after Brees in this one. Hopefully the return of Everson Griffen will provide the Vikings’ defense the spark they need to do just that.2) Throw the football. A lot. – Usually, the emphasis is on being able to run the football to balance things out offensively, but in this case that could be counter-productive. The Saints’ run defense is really good, but their pass defense is awful, and they certainly don’t have anyone capable of hanging with Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs. Kirk Cousins is going to have time to make plays in this one, and I think the Vikings are going to have to air it out in a big way.3) Take advantage of home cooking – By that, I don’t mean any sort of “hometown calls” from the officials. . .as if the Vikings would get those anyway. . .but it’s tough to deny that the Saints are a significantly different team on the road than they are at home. The crowd at U.S. Bank Stadium tonight should be bonkers, and the Vikings are going to need to take advantage of that in this one.Know the Foe: Canal Street ChroniclesTwitter: Right hereFaceBook: http://www.facebook.com/TheDai…..emanTweets

Hey, if they can pull off the accounting tricks to make everything fit within the salary cap, I have no problem with bringing him in. His much overblown ‘dirty play’ days seem to have given way to a more mature player Harrison Smith Jersey
, and we could use some interior pressure. Teams have focused on shutting down Griffen and Hunter, and used their extra blockers solely on the outside. A good interior pass rusher will garner attention, and allow Griffen and Hunter more one-on-one matchups, and they’ll come out ahead on most one-on-one match-ups.Around the DN since our last open thread:Ted shared the tweet by Suh that created a bit of excitement.Chris has version 2.0 of the 2019 Minnesota Vikings Mock Draft Database.Ted updated the latest rumor regarding Anthony Barr that puts the Lions at the front of the pack of suitors for the free-agent linebacker.From Chris, there are rumors in the air saying Antonio Brown is being traded to Oakland.Chris posted v4.0 of his Minnesota Vikings Mock Draft.Ian Rapoport nullified recent rumors, and said that the Vikings have not asked Kyle Rudolph to restructure.Vikings news from other sources and news from around the rest of the league:Vikings.com profiles some of the prospects the team may look at drafting.
