What about the pass rush? With the pass rushing of the Vikings coming alive versus the Giants and most recently the Cowboys. It does not really matter whom you have at QB. No time to make a decision equals JaMarcus Russell. All the networks are saying that the pressure is going to be on the secondary. I agree with that to a certain extent. The front four will have to get pressure on Drew Bressy in this game to think that they are going to Miami after this contest in the Big EZ.
During pass plays, who will the Saints line be keying to stopping this week. With the play of Ray Edwards last week, he had 3 sacks and 5 tackles for a loss. The problem this week in Edwards, it is going to be interesting to see if his bum knee is going to slow him down.
The Vikes this season, lead the NFL with 48 sacks in the regular season and Jared Allen had 14.5 of those sacks. The Saints line gave up 20 in the season, now that was 4th in league. This is going to key to try to stop Brees getting in a good rhythm with his receivers. If this happens, it may be a long day for the DBs. So Leslie Frazier, needs to find way to get Drew Brees knocked around and make sure he is not able to look for his 3 or 4th target in a pass play.
The VIkes need to pay attention to what the Cowboys did against the Saints. The Cowboys flat out dominated them and did not get Brees enough time to breath in that game. It was also a home game for those Cowboys. Look at what the Vikes did to that same Dallas team last week. Keep the throttle down on the Saints and not looking back.
As long as the Vikes have some defender standing over a sacked Brees continually in this game that is going to happen on Sunday. It is going to be a great day for Viking fans.
