We mentioned earlier in this space that an AFC team was quite helpful to the Vikings in their drive for playoff positioning in the NFC. The Tennessee Titans defeated the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, knocking the defending NFC champs to7-4 overall, 3 games behind the Vikings.
Tonight another AFC team – the New England Patriots – will also play an NFC division leader – the New Orleans Saints. The Saints are one of two remaining undefeated teams (Indianapolis) and are in the driver’s seat for the #1 seed and home field advantage in the NFC playoffs. But a loss tonight will pull them back in a tie with the Vikings at 10-1 and the race for the #1 seed will be on.
Tonight’s game between the Patriots and Saints is in New Orleans and kickoff is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. CT.
