Remember the last time New Orleans and Minnesota faced each other in the playoffs? The Vikings have a similarly talented team, and the Saints won't be able to keep up with them.

Minnesota will have stud running back Dalvin Cook returning from injury, which will give Kirk Cousins, Stephon Diggs and Kyle Rudolph more room to operate in the passing game. From there, with the Saints' passing defense ranking 20th in yardage allowed, the Vikings will have no trouble carving New Orleans up.

The Saints may be hot, but the way their luck has been the last few playoff runs, no one should expect them to win.

Minnesota Miracle? Pass interference? All in the past. This is the Saints year, and they're not going to let the Vikings stop them.

New Orleans is on a three-game winning streak heading into the playoffs and is riding the highs of Drew Brees and Michael Thomas' record-breaking seasons. While the Saints offense has always been a source of strength with the Sean Payton at the helm, it's the defense that's making the difference this year, especially against teams who run the ball as much as the Vikings do. They stuffed Christian McCaffrey in the last game of the season and finished as the fourth-best rushing defense heading into the playoffs. Dalvin Cook is going to run into a brick wall.

The Saints are going to the next round.
