Saints has gotten significantly more interesting over the past couple of years. . .well , from a Vikings fan perspective, at least. The Saints had run off a few wins in a row over the Vikings, but the purple broke that streak last season. The regular season history between these two teams is what well be focusing on here.As always, all of the numbers used in this post come from the good folks at Pro Football Reference.Total regular season games between the Saints and the Vikings: 29All-time record: Vikings, 19-10Total Vikings points scored, head-to-head: 732 (25.4 points/game)Total Saints points scored, head-to-head: 531 (18/3 points/game)Longest Vikings winning streak vs Saints: 6 games, 27 September 1970 to 12 September 1976Longest Saints winning streak vs Vikings: 3 games Authentic Matt Wile Jersey , 9 September 2010 to 21 September 2014Most recent Vikings home win in series: 11 September 2017 (Final score: 29-19)Most recent Saints road win in series: 18 December 2011 (Final score 42-20)Biggest Vikings home win in series: 42 points, 4 December 1988 (Final score 45-3)Biggest Saints road win in series: 22 points, 18 December 2011 (Final score 42-20)Current streak: Vikings, 1 winThe Saints and Vikings opened last season at U.S. Bank Stadium on Monday Night Football, and we saw the start of what looked like an outstanding season for quarterback Sam Bradford. Bradford completed 27-of-32 passes for 346 yards and three touchdown passes. Stefon Diggs brought in two of the scores, while the other was hauled in by Kyle Rudolph. The Vikings dominated throughout most of the evening, and the Saints got a late touchdown to make things slightly less lopsided, but the Vikings won 29-19. Then Authentic Mike Remmers Jersey , before we knew it, Bradford was basically done for the season. . .but the Vikings did alright anyway.Saints quarterback Drew Brees has set a lot of records in his NFL career, and he probably could have set some more the last time the Saints won in Minnesota. In 2011, against a defense thats on the short list of the worst in Vikings history, Brees was pretty much unstoppable. Brees completed 32-of-40 passes for 412 yards and five touchdown. . .and threw his last pass at the 13:36 mark of the fourth quarter. The Saints put Brees on the bench after that, but had they wanted to let him set records in that one, they could have. As it was, the Saints won 42-20 as the Vikings spiraled to a 3-13 season.Thats a quick look at the history between the Minnesota Vikings and the New Orleans Saints , ladies and gentlemen. Theres plenty more to come before this Sundays contest, and well have everything right here for your reading pleasure. ESPN football analyst Adam Schefter is burning the midnight oil tonight, as he often does the night before an NFL Sunday, and hes confirmed a couple of things that weve been hearing over the course of this week.When the Vikings take the field on Sunday against the Detroit Lions at U.S. Bank Stadium, they will NOT have the services of wide receiver Stefon Diggs.This is not a huge surprise, as Diggs didnt practice all week with his rib injury. The move the Vikings made to move wide receiver Chad Beebe to the active roster on Saturday provided a bit of foreshadowing to this as well.It does, however, look like running back Dalvin Cook is going to give it a go on a limited basis.Cook hasnt played since Week 4 against the Los Angeles Rams. As Schefter mentions , he has had weeks where the team thought he might play, most notably in Week 6 against the Arizona Cardinals, but wound up being deactivated after pregame workouts didnt go the way everyone thought. Well see if the Vikings pull the trigger on Cook this time around.Schefter also reported that Lions star cornerback Darius Slay, who was added to the injury report after being limited in practice on Friday, is expected to be active and start.Well have more on this one as we get closer to kickoff.
