Case Keenum 'excited nervous' for first career playoff start

U.S. Sen John Kennedy R-La. has bet a king cake against purple ice cream from Sen. Amy Klobuchar D-Minn. for the National Football League divisional playoff game between the New Orleans Saints and the Minnesota Vikings

U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) today joined Senator John Kennedy (R-LA) in a friendly "Cake and Ice Cream" bet on Sunday's National Football League playoff game between the Minnesota Vikings and the New Orleans Saints.

Drew Brees had another big game last week while everyone was focusing on the legs of Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara.

Keenum will call on tight end Kyle Rudolph to produce his first 100-yard receiving game of the season as the quarterback looks to play it safe and avoid Saints defensive backs Marshon Lattimore and Ken Crawley. I firmly believe whoever wins this game will not only represent the NFC in the Super Bowl, they will hoist the Lombardi Trophy. So Teddy Bridgewater looks to be the odd man out, assuming Bradford is indeed active.

Minnesota has the fifth-most explosive passing plays (15 yards-plus) and New Orleans has allowed the fifth-most this year, according to Sharp Football. He followed that up with the best game of his career Week 1 against the Saints, as he went 27-for-32 for 346 yards and three touchdowns. Although Newman is listed as questionable, he should still be good to go for the game on Sunday. I think he's someone to learn from.

This isn't to make assumptions or get too far ahead of things, but here are a few facts to note about the Philadelphia Eagles - just in case the Vikings meet them a week from now. The Vikings built a 21-point lead and eventually won 34-16. If the Saints can get a sack-fumble return or an interception return for a score, that's easily the best way for New Orleans to pull off the upset.

The NFC Divisional round of the NFL Playoffs is upon us.

How Analysts Feel About Spectris plc (LON:SXS)?
The shares were bought at an average cost of GBX 204 ($2.77) per share, for a total transaction of £10,200 ($13,832.38). Obermeyer Wood Investment Counsel Lllp decreased Bank Amer Corp (BAC) stake by 8.9% reported in 2017Q3 SEC filing.

Minnesota establishes the run game early while giving Case Keenum some easy throws to get his rhythm going. Fast forward to Week 1 of this season, with Bridgewater still not ready to play, and Bradford suffered a knee injury in the win against the Saints that cost him all but one brief Week 5 comeback attempt this season.

Vikings guard Nick Easton, whose season ended with fractured right ankle suffered December 23 at Green Bay, said he will be ready for the start of spring drills. Head coach Mike Zimmer puts the team in great position.

The Jaguars defense is the best in the NFL. The Vikes have somehow managed to find new and creative ways to jab a stick in the eye of their fans in the playoffs since last reaching the Super Bowl in January 1977.

Coleman had 23 catches during the regular season for 364 yards and three touchdowns. "He's got speed to hit the edge and they're both really good in the screen game". There's going to be a running back I want to destroy. He had two TDs and 93 yards in opener against Saints. "You can see him getting the ball to a lot of different guys".

Minnesota cornerback Xavier Rhodes has said Smith should be the NFL's Defensive Player of the Year, which would also be fine with Smith.
