The opponents are set, New Orleans will play host to the Vikings in the NFC Championship game after their 34-3 win over the Dallas Cowboys today.
Minneapolis hammered the hapless Cowboys at the Metrodome in a very lopsided game conjuring 323 total yards on what had been a stingy Dallas defense of late.
Brett Favre seemed to have the Cowboys number connecting on 15 of 24 passes for 234 yards and four touchdowns, he was only sacked twice.
At the opposite end of the spectrum was Dallas quarterback Tony Romo who played like the old December Romo connecting on 22 of 35 passes for 198 yards and no touchdowns with one interception, he was sacked six times.
If that wasn’t bad enough he was also responsible for two fumbles which makes Romo accountable for three of the five total Dallas “losses”.
I am not a fan of either team so that’s as far as I will delve into their match-up, if your of the curious nature you can follow this link to view a complete breakdown on NFL.com.
The Saints were probably hoping to get another crack at the Cowboys after their week 14 loss to them at home, never the less New Orleans is surely anxious to hit the field against Favre and the Vikings.
New Orleans last game against the Minnesota was week five of the 2008 season when the Vikes narrowly escaped the Superdome with the win, 30-27.
It was quite a memorable game as fans can recall as it was the first time in NFL history a game had a combination of a blocked field goal, a TD pass by a non-quarterback, two field goals of beyond 50 yards and two punt return touchdowns by running back Reggie Bush, tying the NFL record.
