Sunday, January 14, at 4:40 p.m. ET on Fox and Fox Sports Go: No. 4 New Orleans Saints at No. 2 Minnesota Vikings

The Minnesota Vikings are two wins away from becoming the first team ever to host the Super Bowl. But first, they have to take care of business in the Divisional Round, and they got a tough opponent in the New Orleans Saints. This game begins at 4:30 p.m. ET on FOX (live streams at Fox Sports Go, Yahoo! Sports, and FuboTV).

The Saints then hosted the Carolina Panthers in the wild-card round and held on for a 31-26 win. However, Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey and tight end Greg Olsen each posted over 100 yards, and quarterback Cam Newton accounted for 386 (349 passing, 37 rushing).

The Saints are in the Divisional Round of the playoffs after defeating the Carolina Panthers, 31-26 last Sunday. The Vikings had a bye week after finishing the regular season as the No. 2 seed, winning the NFC North championship with a 13-3 overall record.

The clash of strengths in Sunday’s NFC divisional-round contest between the New Orleans Saints and Minnesota Vikings has the potential to produce the best game of the weekend in the NFL. New Orleans enters with an impressive offense carried not by quarterback Drew Brees like it has in past years, but by running backs Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram.

The Vikings have been a pleasant surprise on offense, with career backup Case Keenum thriving at quarterback, but Minnesota’s real success story is its top-rated defense that will be hard for the Saints to break down. New Orleans running backs Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara have fueled the Saints offensive success for the majority of the season, leading the way for a 5th ranked rushing attack that produces nearly 130 yards per game.

Ingram, who continues to be vastly underrated as a runner, finished with a career high 1,124 yards on the ground with 12 touchdowns, averaging 4.9 yards per carry.
