The Minnesota Vikings are riding on a four-game winning streak right now and have done so without some of their most important players on the field. It's been a total team effort to get to a 5-4 record on the season, from the coaches all the way down the roster.

The Vikings face off against a tough NFC opponent this week with the New Orleans Saints coming to town in Week 10, and the Saints are a franchise that many Vikings fans have developed a strong distaste for.

The Vikings currently hold the seventh seed in the NFC playoff bracket, and a win this week would strengthen their odds of making the playoffs this year or even put them in a better position in the race for the division.

There are matchups all over the field that need to be won in order for the Minnesota Vikings to secure a victory, but what are some of the key matchups that the Vikings need to win in Week 10 vs. the Saints?
