Vikings add Bradford to 53-man roster before playoff game

But he did point to Bradford having thrown for 346 yards in a 29-19 win over New Orleans in the September 11 opener and te quarterback at least having played more this season than Bridgewater.

The Saints finished 10th on defense, but were also the number two offense (391.2 yards per game and 28 points per game) and are very hard to stop once they get into a rhythm.

The two teams met in the first game of the season with the Vikings claiming a 29-19 win at Minnesota.

"We've been very outspoken, since we found out we're having the Super Bowl here ... we wanted to be the first team to play in our own Super Bowl", said Rudolph. "I'm going to watch the game Sunday and enjoy it". As teams battle it out over the coming weeks for a chance to play in Super Bowl LII at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minnesota, fans get fierce when it comes to supporting their teams. No game is better than the last one on the slate!

"Some things you don't talk about", he said.

"For me and Jerick, we're looking forward to the challenge (of Sunday)". The Falcon's defence is a force to be reckoned with; especially going into their game this weekend with the Eagles, a team that relies on their running game.

Bradford hasn't played in a full game since throwing for 346 yards and three touchdowns in the opener against the Saints.

Pat Shurmur wanted: The Vikings' offensive coordinator is in high demand for head coaching vacancies this year. Lattimore has five interceptions on the season and feels much more confident than he did when he faced the Vikings in the season opener. For example, quick passes to running back Jerrick McKinnon out of the backfield could go a long way toward winning this game.

That said, New Orleans' Drew Brees seemed to willingly take a step back over the course of 16 games, allowing the 1-2 punch of Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara to shoulder more of the load offensively.

"We're not thinking about that", said Murray. They became the first duo in National Football League history each gain at least 1,500 yards from scrimmage. I've admired how he moves the ball down field and what kind of leader he is. They've been mixing him in and getting him some reps here and there. It remains uncertain whether the Vikings will dress three quarterbacks against the Saints and whether Teddy Bridgewater, who has been the backup for starter Case Keenum, will continue in that role. "He's working back in, getting his feet wet".

They have to face one of the greatest quarterbacks of this generation though in Drew Brees, who picked apart the Carolina Panthers during the NFC Wild Card Game last weekend.
