    Also I just checked and Minnesota doesn't even have the #2 RB duo.

    Combined yards from scrimmage by two RBs:

    Ingram/Kamara: 2387
    Gurley/Brown: 1709
    Murray/McKinnon: 1666
    Gorden/Ekeler: 1649
    Bell/Conner: 1622
    Crowell/Johnson: 1512

    I stopped checking there but it looks like almost all of the NFL comes in above 1000. So in other words, the margin between the Saints RB duo and the Vikings RB duo is as big as the margin between the latter and the worst NFL teams in terms of RB duos, i.e. teams that have rotated between more than two RBs this season.

    Or using your words, there isn't a big difference between the Saints two RBs and the two RBs of the team that went 0-16.
    Where are you getting 700 total yards? During those weeks it was 196 to 154. Thatís 42 yards per game and 462 total yards. Again I took this from the below article.

    http://www.1500espn.com/vikings-2/20...t-cook-injury/
    2017 Vikings Draft :
    41: Dalvin Cook RB Florida State
    70: Pat Elflein C Ohio State
    109: Jaleel Johnson DT Iowa
    120: Ben Gedeon LB Michigan
    170: Rodney Adams WR South Florida
    180: Danny Isidora G Miami
    201: Bucky Hodges TE Virginia Tech
    219: Stacy Coley WR Miami
    220: Ifeadi Odenigbo DE Northwestern
    232: Elijah Lee LB Kansas State
    245: Jack Tocho CB N.C. State

    There's a difference between weeks 5-15 and games 5-15, because of the bye week. In effect I quoted the stats including one more game. Here's my source: https://www.pro-football-reference.c...from_scrimmage

    However, weeks 5-15, the totals are:

    Ingram/Kamara: 2231
    Murray/McKinnon: 1540

    A difference of 691, or 69.1 per game. It's one game fewer, but pretty much the same big margin.

    It looks like the ESPN article posted the wrong numbers for Ingram and Kamara. I do have the same number that the article cites for Murry and Mckinnon. Here's PFR with weeks 5-15: https://www.pro-football-reference.c...from_scrimmage

    Y'all crazy. It is gonna come down to how well Case Keenum plays. None of y'all's **** stats matter. The first meeting was nonsense. That isn't the same team from either side. This is gonna be whether Case Keenum can keep his cool and play the game. We all know the Vikings defense is gonna play hard and not let Drew Brees handle them. It is gonna be a tough as nails game whether you like that or not. Vikings have the in to the super bowl and im playing the cards right. If you aren't you just aren't seeing straight.

    During their eight home games this year, Minnesota gave up an average of*just 55 rushing yards*to their opponents (second-fewest in NFL historyduring a 16-game season).

    But I don't like a tough as nails game.

    Here's an interesting one -- league source says Vikings plan to dress Sam Bradford on Sunday vs. Saints. He hasn't suited up since Week 5 with a knee injury. Unclear if Teddy Bridgewater will also dress.

    It's going to come down to how well Treadwell lines up against Vonn Bell

    In the playoff predictions thread, I had these teams in the NFC Championship games. I firmly believe these are the two best teams in the NFC with the tragic injury to Carson Wentz. In that thread, I picked the Vikings in a close game to advance to the Super Bowl. I am picking the same outcome even without the trip to the Super Bowl on the line. This Vikings defense is special and Case Keenum has played too well to be scapegoated. I don't expect any sort of regression or bad game from him, just continue what he has been doing. He won't make mistakes that will cost Minnesota, he's not done that all year. Drew Brees is great and the Saints rushing attack is the best it's been since he's been in New Orleans, but I'm a believer in the Vikings.

    NFC is always more exciting than the AFC... going with the Vikings but wouldn't be shocked if NO won. They're a really good team.

    I disagree with it always bring more exciting. It is this year though.

    As expected, he will be the back up with Case on a short leash
