Cameron Jordan's father has split allegiances, picks one for Saints-Vikings

Cameron Jordan's father has split allegiances, picks one for Saints-Vikings

The Minnesota Vikings announced they activated quarterback Sam Bradford from injured reserve Saturday ahead of Sunday's NFC divisional playoff game against the New Orleans Saints.

That game was arguably the best of Bradford's career, as he completed 84.4 percent of his passes for 346 yards and three touchdowns with zero interceptions.

Bradford missed all but two games during the regular season with a knee injury. Bradford returned in Chicago in Week 5 but was pulled before halftime after aggravating his injured left knee.


Bradford, who was placed on IR on November 8 with a left knee injury, returned to practice last week and completed his fifth practice Friday. The last time the Vikings lost at home in a divisional playoff game was in 1975, when the Cowboys beat them in the infamous Drew Pearson push-off game.

1 seed, the Eagles will host the victor of the matchup between the New Orleans Saints and the Minnesota Vikings, which will kickoff in Minnesota at 4:40 p.m. EST.

Bradford, Bridgewater and Case Keenum are all scheduled to become free agents after the season, and Bradford's return to health during the playoffs could help his case if he hits the open market in March. When asked to assess Bradford's progress, Zimmer said, "It's kind of hard to judge with five practices". The team also has reinforcements in quarterbacks Teddy Bridgewater and Kyle Sloter.
