Which New Orleans Saints players should the Minnesota Vikings worry about in Week 16?

10-4. Saints -7. FOX. Friday, Dec 25. 15. 3:30 PM CT. 6-8. 60

The Minnesota Vikings are 6-8 and clinging to a very slim chance at a playoff berth in 2020. They have to win both of their upcoming games, then they need the Arizona Cardinals to lose both of their final two matchups, and hope the Chicago Bears lose at least one of their last two games to sneak in.

That scenario is unlikely for the Vikings, but it is 2020 and crazy things continue to happen this year, so anything is possible.

The first task standing in the way of Minnesota achieving their nearly impossible dream is defeating the New Orleans Saints. The Vikings fly to the Big Easy on Christmas Day to take on the Saints who at 10-4, are clearly a much better and healthier team than Minnesota.

If the Vikings are going to secure the upset victory on Friday, they will need to play their best defensive game of the season. The offensive line will also need to turn in a stellar performance if they are going to have any shot at a victory.

While Minnesota will need to play damn near flawlessly to get a win, there are also certain Saints players they’ll need to account for. Who are some of these New Orleans players that the Vikings should be most concerned about?
