Saints WR Brandon Coleman to miss playoff game vs Vikings

Carolina Panthers reportedly making claim about Cam Newton’s injury to avoid concussion protocol punishment

"I felt as a team that two-game stretch was really going to define our season". They are still an aggressive defense but I think there are some opportunities out there for us. Defensively we play great when we've been at home with this crowd.

After sabotaging what should have been a playoff season a year ago, how ironic would it be for the kicking game to bail out the Saints in their biggest challenge this season?

Saints coach Sean Payton called the Vikings' effectiveness the ideal blend of scheme and personnel. He caught only four passes in the past three games after injuring his ankle in Carolina on December 10. While he isn't one of the league's premiere talents at the position, Keenum has still been incredibly proficient under center for the Vikings this season.

"Some things you don't talk about", he said. The answer will be neither, but man, I like the Saints chances better than the Vikings, because of who's at QB.

One of those losses came in the 2000 divisional round at Minnesota.

As Payton mentioned, it's a combination of scheme and talent; more to the point, it's a combination of a pass rush that can force a quarterback to throw too soon and a secondary - and linebackers - that can cover receivers tightly.

The pass rush helped clinch the Saints' 31-26 victory over the Panthers during NFC wild-card weekend.

A cold weekend ahead with more snow coming Monday
Friday , for metro Detroit and the surrounding area - including Wayne, Oakland, Macomb, Washtenaw, Monroe, St. Temperatures will fall into the teens by Friday night and winds will increase to 15-20 miles per hour .

The Saints, of course, can't concern themselves with such subplots and wishes for such complications for the Vikings.

Late in the regular season, Sean Payton chose to insert Alvin Kamara as a kickoff returner.

New Orleans also pressures the passer.

Atlanta was plagued by penalties, dropped passes and turnovers throughout the game, while the Saints rode their sensational rookie running back Alvin Kamura to a thorough manhandling of the defending NFC champions. Kamara rushed the ball seven times and Mark Ingram had six attempts for 17 yards. It's taken some big-play pressure off Brees, who proved last weekend he still can almost single-handedly win a game while throwing for 379 yards against a Panthers defense focused on shutting down the backfield.

New Orleans is battered.

For whatever it's worth, all the way back on September 11, Bradford threw for 346 yards and three touchdowns in a 29-19 home win over the Saints in Week 1. Meanwhile, the Saints are one of the hottest teams in the NFL. Could he again see more playoff action Sunday?

"I've got a lot of love for a lot of people there", Line said. "That's just the way it goes. You cherish these moments for sure".
