Vikings fans, anecdotally, are treating the upcoming playoffs in one of two ways: They are bravely touting how good their 13-3 team is, or they are nervous about Minnesota blowing a game in an unexpected, painful way.
Bradford started in Week 1 against the Saints and passed for 346 yards, three touchdowns and a career high 143.0 passer rating, despite injuring his knee in the game. The Vikings host New Orleans on Sunday. The team announced that former Eagles quarterback Sam Bradford has been activated to the 53-man roster after recovering from knee surgery that he had earlier this season. Bradford was back for the Bears game, but hobbled around in the first half before being pulled for Keenum. This specific aspect of the report is still unclear, but it definitely appears closer to becoming the truth with the quarterback's activation on Saturday. With the decision, the Vikings also waived tight end Kyle Carter. Current starter Case Keenum has been highly efficient in place of Bradford since taking over in September.

The game was halted for intermission after Danault was injured, and the extra 1:37 was added to the start of the third period. Chara, who has one of the hardest shots in the National Hockey League , looked on in concern as trainers attended to Danault.
However, a source close to the team has told The Viking Age that Bridgewater will actually be among the Vikings' inactives on Sunday.
Teddy Bridgewater was originally the quarterback having led the Vikings to the Divisional round of the playoffs in 2015.
