Vikings take Bradford off IR for playoffs; 4th QB on roster

Vikings take Bradford off IR for playoffs; 4th QB on roster

It's their first time hosting the NFC Championship Game since January 2005, when they won to advance to the Super Bowl. When the Saints travel to play the Vikings you better stop what you're doing and watch this game.

The Vikings finished 13-3, just like the Eagles, but the Eagles secured the top seed and home-field advantage based on record against common opponents. This was widely expected after the Vikings activated Bradford from injured reserve on Saturday.

The Minnesota offense has flourished under the leadership of quarterback Case Keenum, who has formed a solid rapport with offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur and his teammates en route to throwing 22 touchdown pass and completing over 67 percent of his attempts. If there's one thing you can say about the Saints it might be that their biggest contributors are rookies, and they might not play as well on the road. That combo was held to 68 total yards in their playoff win against Carolina last week, though.

(NYSE:TSM) Stock Price
Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company Limited (NYSE: TSM ) has risen 51.40% since January 13, 2017 and is uptrending. Regardless, closing prices are a useful tool that investors use to quantify changes in stock prices over time.

No statistical trends are going to affect Minnesota's current team, which has been maybe the most balanced unit of the entire conference, and Zimmer has been adamant in debunking the concerns of a Vikings "curse", but there's also a precedent for postseason slip-ups in the Midwest.

But it's their defense that has been their calling card this season, ranking first in points and yards allowed. The Saints used their potent rushing attack featuring Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara during the regular season. They became the first duo in National Football League history each gain at least 1,500 yards from scrimmage. Saints coach Sean Payton is 7-4 in the playoffs and has twice eliminated the Eagles.
