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.
