The New Orleans Saints enter the NFL’s Divisional Round of the playoffs, traveling north to take on the Minnesota Vikings in a rematch of their Week 1 clash on Monday Night Football. The Saints are just 2-3 in the divisional round, with all three losses coming on the road. Needless to say, it’s a great time to end that skid. Here’s a look at the biggest things related to the black and gold you may or may not have missed this week.
Brandon Coleman (neck) was ruled out for Sunday, with Taysom Hill (illness) and Michael Mauti (illness) listed as questionable. David Onyemata will be playing with a cast to protect a thumb injury.
The Saints will be in black pants and white jerseys, with the game being nationally televised on FOX with an encore broadcast team of Joe Buck and Troy Aikman. Gene Steratore is the referee for the game.
