I'm liking the Coleman in the slot vs Mackenzie at nickel. We will probably have better than expected success running the ball than passing against them. Pretty sure they ranked lower than us in run defense the last few years.
I think you hit on something I've definitely considered lately with the Play Action. I think the Vikings D will bite on that early and often. My prediction for the first play of the game is a PA slant with AD in the backfield to throw them off. Everyone will expect Peterson to get a look early which makes it a perfect setup for the play action.
Our defensive coaches are salivating! Look for stunts and a variety of blitz schemes. Bradford's head will be on a swivel. I believe the Saints will have a combined 10+ QB hurries & sacks in this game.
The other real question is whether the Vikings defense is all that great anymore. They fell off a cliff at times in the 2nd half of last season and looked like garbage in the preseason. We'll see.
I got us 28-13. This wait til Monday is killing me
i really believe that our defense is going to have a field day against their patchwork O-line leading great field position and a huge time of possession advantage for us. Also a statement win. Saints 34 Vikings 17
I don't believe in much, but I do believe in the Saints defense. 42-17 Saints With 5 sacks and an Int by a linebacker.
Great D vs Great Saints O. Push
Improved but average Saints D vs bad O. Advantage Saints.
Special teams. Gasp. Advantage Saints.
I just want to wake up Tuesday morning above .500 for the first time in years. Saints 27-17
reddit.com:I predict we limit them to 80yds rushing and 260yds passing. Give up 2 TDs and 2 FGs. We win 23-20 on a balanced attack and despite a *gasp* Adrian Peterson fumble.
They have a horrible OLine. We limit mistakes and avoid turnovers and win
I wasn't feeling great about it until I saw our defense this preseason. Our O-Line will have their hands full with Everson Griffen and Danielle Hunter plus their secondary is great so I think we'll struggle a little at first offensively. However, if our defense can rattle Bradford I know we can score more points.
Saints 13 Vikings 18. Brees throws a pick 6.
Saints 27-3 our defense is for real!
Man, i so hope what AD said turns into an awesome story for the year: It starts in Minnesota and it will end in Minnesota.
All I know is the Saints eat on prime time while the Vikings choke on prime time, and we have won the last three meetings.
it's such an equal game on both sides. i think the Saints will claw this one out. 24-21
31-13. Their offense will be in for a rude awakening if they think it'll be the same old Saints D
Vikings offense is a joke and our def looks solid, so as long as we can move the ball on offense and score points we should be good to go imo
I think we'll blow them out. Cam will dominate and it's going to be a coming out party for Kikaha/Okafor/Muhammed. We'll have to remember not to bank on that, though, because the MN O-Line is in rough shape. Calling the Saints victory 34-16.
I'm predicting 28-3 final score. Saints on top.
17-0 Saints. I think the D is legit. I think Brees gets it done. I think it will be the boring game in Monday Night.
