6:40 p.m., Sunday, FOX

 

Line: Saints -3

 

Key injuries: Vikings DE Ray Edwards has a knee injury. Saints TE Jeremy Shockey is hurting, too.

 

Keys to the NFC game:

 

1 A little defense — The Vikings have a great offense. The Saints have a really great offense. Whichever defense holds the other team under 40 will have a good shot.

2 Peterson’s play — The Vikings’ all-world RB was mediocre against Dallas. If he gets rolling, there’s probably no stopping Minnesota.

3 Ray Edwards —
The Minny DE looks like he’ll be OK by Sunday, but if his sprained MCL holds him back at all, it’s a major boost to New Orleans.
