Biggest Key For Saints vs Vikings
We have to hold our own on both LOS. The other stuff will take care of itself. The Vikings are solid on both sides. Having Peat and Okafor would be nice in a game like this.

Can't forget to throw the ball to Kamara out of the backfield like last week. I expect them to motion Kamara out of the backfield even if it's as a decoy to make the defense declare.

Ken Crawley is the X factor

I'd bet theyve keyed on that inside WR screen we use a lot on 3rd down. The Vikings defense is good because of their aggressiveness, time to pull out all the shite we've been setting up all year. Burn em on that shite.

I swear on everything holy, if we are having a plus drive and run some dip shite end around to this dude, I'm breaking shite. He's a fun size Travaris Cadet on offense.

3rd down

Convert over 50%
Hold Minnesota under 50%

Saints win

re: Biggest Key For Saints vs Vikings
Well, it takes a versatile back like Kamara, a multiple offense and a QB who can recognize the defense once they do declare and also realize what to do once that happens, PLUS be able to deliver once the ball is snapped. So, it may never work at LSU.

re: Biggest Key For Saints vs Vikings
Agree with the 3rd Down conversion take...

Also, just heard on NFL Countdown, we are 6-0 when AK gets 10+ carries in the run game. When he gets less than 10 carries, we are 6-5. I'd say Kamara is the x-factor. We escaped with a win last week without getting him much work. If we can find a way to get him the ball more even though the Vikes will be keying on him, I think he breaks loose.

Also, we need a big turnover on D. I'm feeling a Lattimore pick-6.

The offense getting started early is the absolute most important key to this game.

We come out on the first possession and go empty set shotgun 3 and out bull shite nonsense we're in for a baaaad time.

Payton needs to not French fry when he's supposed to pizza.

Maybe we have Kamara wear their D-Line out with his shiftiness then have Ingram just power it in for the 2nd/3rd and shorts. Of course Brees will do his thing once either of the two get going OR he will get it started with dinks and dunks. There's a handful of things our offense can do, especially with him running it.

re: Biggest Key For Saints vs Vikings
Yep I hope we take the first possession even if we win the toss. Go down and score a day set the tone early.

Another big key is Lattimore/Crawley being able to stay on islands against Diggs/Thielen. If they can do that, it helps allow us to keep stacking the box.

re: Biggest Key For Saints vs Vikings
Heard yesterday that the Saints had 5 redzone trips in week 1 with only 1 TD. Can't imagine that again if we make it to the redzone like that again.

re: Biggest Key For Saints vs Vikings
Another is the O-line. First meeting we didn't have Armstead, Unger hadn't gone through pre-season, and Strief goes out forcing Ram to move to the left his first ever game.
Even with Kelemete instead of Peat we should see a much better showing in that regard.
