New Orleans Saints

Minnesota Vikings



How on earth do you follow that? Pittsburgh and Jacksonville have just served up an absolute classic in the AFC but now it's time for the NFC Divisional Playoff between the New Orleans Saints and the Minnesota Vikings. I'm Stephen Clark with you over the next three hours or so.

Ready for kick off already as the Vikings kick us off and the Saints will start from the 25 yard line following the touchback.

Saints and Drew Brees then have first use of the football and Mark Ingram has the carry amd picks up around 6 yards on first down

2nd & 5 - First pass from Brees looks for Alvin Kamara but it's incomplete.

3rd & 5 - Brees drops back and looks for Kamara out of the backfield but it's a poor throw and is dropped. 3 and out for the Saints and they will punt.

Punter to the rescue for New Orleans as he has to make a tackle to bring down Sherrels of the Vikings after an 18 yard return. He takes a bang to the head and is a little slow in leaving the field

Couple of hand-offs by Keenum to the Vikings running back and we have a 3rd & 1 situation - Another hand off to Murray and he runs into the pile but is given the 1st down.

MIN 1st & 10 - Keenum's first throw is a little dump off to Murray and he picks up around 6 or 7 yards.

2nd & 6 - Mckinnon takes the hand off this time and picks up around 3 yards to bring up 3rd down.

3rd & 3 - Keenum with a rainbow throw to Wright on the right hand sideline and a 22 yard pickup for the Vikings.
