The New Orleans Saints (5-2) take on the Minnesota Vikings (4-2) in an NFC match-up in Minnesota. This game is the highly anticipted rematch of the playoff game last year that ended in the Stefon Diggs miracle touchdown. The Saints come to U.S. Bank Stadium looking for revenge.
Just a little game of catch between @stefondiggs and some @Vikings fans! #SKOL

At 39 years old Drew Brees is still at the top of his game, leading his team to the best record in the NFC South and going all season without an interception so far. With the Panthers winning in Week 8 Panthers, the Saints need to win this one to keep their first-place standing in the division.

The Saints recently picked up Eli Apple from the Giants, which could give them the extra edge they need on defense to take down the Vikings in their home stadium.

The Vikings are historically dominant at home and are coming off a three-game winning streak. With quarterback Kirk Cousins, the Vikings give the Saints a different, more explosive team than they faced in the playoffs last year.
