Thoughts on the game
Both teams can score a ton, from anywhere on the field, by land or by air, at any time. They are the two top scoring teams in the league.
Both teams have huge potential holes, having been outclassed, outplayed, outshined by teams considered far their inferiors. But both teams have laid the hurt on some very good other teams, too. Both teams won playoff games last week by 31 points.
Prior matchups don't matter a bit: The Saints killed the Cardinals who killed Minnesota. The Vikings killed the Cowboys who killed New Orleans.
The Vikings played terrible on the road in December, the Saints terrible at home the same time.
So who wins? I don't know. But only because I'm not sure whether it's a loss this week or two weeks from now that can inflict the most suffering on Vikings fans.
