NSS NFC Wild Card: Vikings @ Saints

NSS NFC Wild Card: Vikings @ Saints

                This may be the easiest Wild Card pregame that I have ever done.  No Minnesota miracle should be happening, this game should be about pure revenge for the Saints.  PURE REVENGE FOR THE SAINTS.  The Saints pregame hype video should be the “Miracle” play to make the Saints come out with a fresh dose of anger.

                Drew Brees will be looking for Michael Thomas to keep on breaking records.  Kirk Cousins will keep proving that he wasn’t worth the contract.  The genius of Sean Payton will be fully on display for this game.  Taysom Hill will represent Idaho in the wild card game.  The Saints are playing at home, in theory, even starting Bridgewater the Saints should still be the favorite.

                Pardon my “shade” against the Vikings but, personally, they don’t seem to have a winning shot.  They are not a better team than last year even with Dalvin Cook at 100% and truly carrying the offense.  Cook leads in rushing and is the 2nd leader in receiving yards for the Vikings behind Stefon Diggs.  At the end of the day the Vikings don’t trust Kirk Cousins.

Cousins Stats 2019 in the last 5 years or since he became a full time starter:

  • 3,603 Yards are the lowest in his last 5 years.
  • 26 Touchdowns, 2nd lowest in his last 5 years.
  • 6 interceptions, sounds great, Cousins has only attempted 444 passes, which is the lowest in his last 5 years.

Cousins is not the Vikings primary weapon nor option; therefore the Saints only have to focus on containing Cook.

On the other side of the ball, Brees in 11 games has 2,979 passing yards, 27 touchdowns and only thrown 4 interceptions.  The Saints are one of the best home teams in the league and fueled by revenge from last year, this game should be a BREEze.

Pick: Saints.
