  • Saints vs. Vikings: Updated Odds, Stat Predictions for 2018 NFC Divisional Game

    The clash of strengths in Sunday's NFC divisional-round contest between the New Orleans Saints and Minnesota Vikings has the potential to produce the best game of the weekend in the NFL.

  • Brees, defensive stand help Saints top Panthers

    NEW ORLEANS - Drew Brees passed for 376 yards and two touchdowns, and the New Orleans Saints held off the Carolina Panthers' late comeback bid to seal a 31-26 victory in their NFC wild-card game Sunday. The Panthers had a first down on the Saints' 26-yard line with 58 seconds left, but heavy pressure by former Cal defensive end Cameron Jordan a couple plays later induced an intentional grounding penalty on Carolina quarterback Cam Newton, making it third-and-25 on the Saints 34...
