With quarterback Jameis Winston listed as doubtful due to back and ankle injuries, the Saints likely will start Andy Dalton. He was Cincinnati’s quarterback in a 2016 game in London when the Bengals tied Washington 27-27. Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins was with Washington then, and threw for 458 yards in that game, still a London record.

The Vikings are expected to have running back Dalvin Cook available after he left last Sunday’s 28-24 win over Detroit in the third quarter with a shoulder injury. But edge rusher Za’Darius Smith is listed as questionable due to a knee injury suffered in that game.

The teams last played on Christmas Day in New Orleans in 2020, when Saints running back Alvin Kamara tied an NFL record by scoring six touchdowns in a game in a 52-33 rout. Minnesota’s last two playoff wins have been over New Orleans, 29-24 in the “Minneapolis Miracle” game in January 2018 and 26-20 in overtime in January 2020.
