Coming off a tough loss to their divisional foe Detroit Lions, the now 2-11 Minnesota Vikings are set up with another extremely difficult opponent in Week 15 against the surging New Orleans Saints.

The 10-3 Saints have plenty of reasons to go all-out on this emaciated Vikings team that has long been eliminated from playoff contention. Among those reasons are multiple passing records that are within reach for their elite play-caller Drew Brees.

The Saints are within a breath of playoff contention, and a win over the Vikings will all but lock a first-round bye in the playoffs.

Here are five keys for the Vikings against the New Orleans Saints.
