McFeely: Dirty secret: Do Vikings fans secretly want them to fail?

McFeely: Dirty secret: Do Vikings fans secretly want them to fail?

The New Orleans Saints carry their high octane offense into Minnesota to take on the Vikings in the NFC divisional round on Sunday.

The third quarter could be huge for the Titans - they've outscored opponents 98-49 in the third quarters of games in 2017 (including the playoffs).

Ground swell: Look past quarterbacks Case Keenum and Drew Brees, and each team has a capable running attack. Chris Hawkey is also excited and gave Vikings fans something to do who cant wait until Sunday. The fourth-year pro has had a very quiet season (eight catches, 92 yards) because he has failed to reintegrate into the team's offense after being suspended for the first three regular-season games.

Michael Corleone took care of all family business in one day; the Vikings will need a good three weeks, and it could be even more epic. The Titans, Jaguars, Falcons and Saints earned their playoff spots by winning their respective Wild Card games last weekend.

Sources who were privy to the Vikings' practices this week believed Bridgewater, not Bradford, would be the team's backup on Sunday. No game is better than the last one on the slate!

There was the obligatory training camp story about how Peterson was becoming a more complete running back in New Orleans but nobody in Minnesota was fooled.

Here we are 125 days later, and the Vikings and Saints are set to meet in Minnesota yet again.

Priefer said that Kamara didn't have extensive experience as a returner at Tennessee but that the Vikings saw enough on film "to say this guy is going to be really good someday".

The Vikings have the best defense in the league in terms of both points allowed (15.8) and yards allowed (275.9) per game. That was the first game of the year.

"It's time", said Childress, elected in a landslide a year after leading the Vikings to victory in Super Bowl XLIV. That combo was held to 68 total yards in their playoff win against Carolina last week, though.

The New Orleans Saints will return to the stadium where their season began in order for them to return one more time. Making the Vikings one-dimensional could a long way to a victory.

That's the kind of the hostility they would like to continue when Drew Brees and Co. come to town. Can you talk about some of Zimmer's top priorities when game planning to stop the Saints cruising offense?
