After a lot of drama at the end of the game, the Minnesota Vikings know who they will face in their Divisional Round playoff contest next week at U.S. Bank Stadium.
The New Orleans Saints defeated the Carolina Panthers by a final score of 31-26 in the final matchup of Wild Card Weekend, meaning that they will make the trip north to face the Vikings at 3:30 PM Central time next Sunday afternoon.
As we know, the Vikings defeated the Saints at U.S. Bank Stadium back in Week 1, with Sam Bradford throwing three touchdown passes and the Saints not finding the end zone until garbage time in a 29-19 Minnesota victory. Bradford has only played two quarters of football since then, but the Vikings have continued going along just fine, having finished with a 13-3 record on the season.
