With the Vikings not in the playoffs, it was nice to watch the games from a neutral perspective as I have no preference no who wins any of the games.

I was impressed with the Saints. Went 14-0 down, never panicked and even got creative with the fake punt to get a first down and get things moving.

The Saints showed balls that I have not seen from the Vikings since Zimmer took over, I get that he is a defensive coach but sometimes you need to do something to get back into a game - another great example was when it was 4 and 1 at the Eagles 5. It was only the first quarter still - a more conservative team would have kicked the field goal put 3 points up and took the attitude that there's plenty of time left - the Saints went for it and put up 7 instead.

No guts no glory.
