Sunday, 8:20 ET, U.S. Bank Stadium, Minneapolis

Saints’ keys to victory:  Get Kirk Cousins off his game. Cousins has been solid this season for the Vikings, even if he didn’t play the best in Week 6 against the Jets. The Vikings have such a weak running game, they have to rely on Cousins and the receiving core. The run game is something that’s improved in the last two weeks, but it’s hardly something the Vikings can depend upon. If the Saints can fluster Cousins, it will likely mean turnovers (Cousins fumbles, a lot) and it will take away any offense Minnesota has. Easy said than done, I know. One thing the Saints shouldn’t do is put too much focus on WR Adam Thielen. That sounds ridiculous considering he’s set the NFL on fire so far, but if you focus too much on Thielen, it opens the door for guys like Stefon Diggs. Keep your defense balanced. When it comes to playmakers, this Vikings’ offense doesn’t have a weakness]]> 5337755 Sun, 21 Oct 2018 20:06:01 EDT Vikings Wire

Thielen continued his historic pace with another superb performance, capping the opening drive with a 34-yard touchdown on his way to a seventh consecutive game over 100 receiving yards to start the season. One more performance over 100 yards would tie Calvin Johnson's NFL record of eight straight such games. Thielen will have a great chance to do so against a vulnerable Saints secondary in Week 8.

<![CDATA[4 takeaways from the Jets' 37-17 Week 7 loss to the Vikings]]>
The offense was stagnant and it didn’t help that Vikings punter Matt Wile did an excellent job of flipping the field on almost all eight of his punts. Defensively, the Jets fell victim to Minnesota being gifted with good field position on multiple occasions and failed to contain Adam Thielen throughout the afternoon.

Here are four takeaways from New York’s loss before the focus shifts to preparing for the Chicago Bears in Week 8]]> 5337466 Sun, 21 Oct 2018 17:15:01 EDT Jets Wire

Thielen becomes the first player in NFL history to have seven-straight 100-yard games to start a season per Vikings PR.

He got the Vikings on the board with this touchdown in the first quarter.

It's Sunday, so Adam Thielen is making plays.

Best believe Todd Bowles knows this as the two come to town for New York’s Sunday showdown with the Minnesota Vikings.

Between the two, Thielen and Diggs have combined for 98 receptions, 1,147 yards and seven touchdowns. The tandem is a nightmare for opposing secondaries at full strenth.

The Jets, meanwhile, will most likely be without three starters.

Bowles has already ruled out Marcus Maye with a thumb injury, while Trumaine Johnson (groin) and Buster Skrine (concussion) look increasingly unlikely to play Sunday. Neither have participated in practice this week]]> 5335085 Fri, 19 Oct 2018 11:21:02 EDT Jets Wire
