Chris Hawkey "This is How We Skol": The Minnesota Vikings theme song

LOOK: Local newspapers perfectly encapsulate Saints, Vikings fans' feelings

Here's a look at the television and live-stream information as well as analysis and a pick.

Postseason History: Saints: making 11th overall playoff appearance (11th since merger), 8-9 in postseason play (8-9 since merger)...Vikings: making 29th overall playoff appearance (27th since merger), 19-28 in postseason play (17-26 since merger)...

Wheeler, a Minnesota native and a Jet headed to his first All-Star Game, has thrived versus his home state team this season, with five points in the three previous meetings. Quarterback Jameis Winston threw for 363 yards, and wideouts Chris Godwin and Adam Humphries each eclipsed 100 receiving yards. It's a similar story with Case Keenum who, while seldom prone to controversy himself, has been making a big noise at QB for Minnesota this season. Drew Brees is looking to win his 2nd Super Bowl but he's going to have to get by Case Keenum and the ruthless Vikings.

They have to face one of the greatest quarterbacks of this generation though in Drew Brees, who picked apart the Carolina Panthers during the NFC Wild Card Game last weekend.

Keenum, a career backup in his first five seasons, has thrown almost as many touchdown passes (22) for the Vikings (13-3) during the 2017 season as he did in his first five seasons combined (24).

All that will change, however, if the Vikings win the NFC.

Keenum has undoubtedly been helped by the ferocious Vikings defense, the best unit in the National Football League during the regular season.

But the Vikings have the offensive weapons to avoid those players. "It's going to be a totally different game". It never is. Ironically, perhaps the most confident Vikings fan of them all, Joyce Soderholm, worries most over - not the Saints, not the Eagles - but the refs. However, he has been active for only one game this year.

The Vikings offense has an even better advantage on third down against the Saints' defense. The fourth-year pro has had a very quiet season (eight catches, 92 yards) because he has failed to reintegrate into the team's offense after being suspended for the first three regular-season games. Peterson, who rushed for over 10,000 yards in his career with the Vikings, had six carries for 18 yards in Week 1 and wound up being traded to the Arizona Cardinals.
