Four words: Adrian. Peterson; Pass Defense. The vikings have an incredible back, but without someone to control the plays and hand the ball off the Saints 2nd year of the 3-4 defense will destroy the vikings offense. The Saints offense on the other hand is going to have to keep the ball closer to the ground for this game if they want to really rack up points on the Vikings. I predict Saints: 28 to Vikings:10.
