These teams met each other in the playoffs two years ago, and then the Minnesota Vikings beat the New Orleans Saints thanks to the so-called Miracle in Minneapolis. Then there was a division round, and now a wild card, in which New Orleans acts as the winner of the NFC Southern Division, and Minnesota took second place in the North NFC.
It should be noted that during the regular championships, Drew Breeze could not hold several matches due to an injury, which, perhaps, was a turning point for the Saints season. The fact is that the somewhat faded game in the attack was corrected by the fact that New Orleans had a very good and aggressive defense. In fact, without Breeze, the team only lost the match in the second week, when the quarterback was injured. It should be noted here that “New Orleans”, according to the results of the championship, has the fourth defense in yards of removal.
