"They're both competitors. They both take their jobs very seriously, which is good".
"Just a guy that I really admire in how he moves the ball down the field and how he operates, what kind of leader he is", Keenum said. He's on-time on his reads and throws. I don't think so. With little support from his running game, the 38-year-old lit up the Carolina Panthers last week, marking the eighth consecutive game in which he had a passer rating of at least 97.
For Hodges, who was traded to San Francisco in the middle of the 2015 season, the departure from Minnesota hurt for a while.
Thomas, who was held to five catches for 45 yards by the Vikings in their Week 1 meeting, was passed off between defensive backs rather than shadowed by Rhodes exclusively. Peat broke his fibula against the Panthers. Bridgewater said on Friday that he's "100 percent."
"But it doesn't matter", Armstead said. He had five interceptions and was picked for the Pro Bowl.

Turkey and its Western allies, including the USA , consider the PKK a terrorist organization. Turkish troops are stationed in rebel-held territory on both sides of Afrin.
If Minnesota decides to activate Bradford ahead of this weekend's game, Zimmer says he believes the quarterback is healthy enough to play, should the Vikings need to go down the depth chart. Coleman's absence will likely cause Sean Payton to eliminate some plays from the playbook for the game this Sunday. But Minnesota's bid, combining its new stadium and winter carnival approach to related festivities, won out.
But with that said you're going on the road, you're going on the road in a very hard place to play in Superdome in terms of again the loudness of the stadium, the ferocity of the fans and oh by the way your stepping up in class in terms of a football team, the Minnesota Vikings are a very very good football team on both sides of the ball but exceptional on the defensive side of the ball.
Favre said, according to ESPN: "A concussion doesn't necessarily have to be knocked out cold and removed from a game, although the new protocol is in place to remove you from a game even if you're not walking sideways or your arm goes stiff or whatever".
The Vikings are two wins away from playing in a Super Bowl on home turf and Zimmer hopes their fanatical support can lift them into an NFC Championship date with the top-seeded Philadelphia Eagles - who they would have to travel to face - or the Atlanta Falcons.
So, what are the odds the Saints avenge their Week 1 loss? It's taken some big-play pressure off Brees, who proved last weekend he still can almost single-handedly win a game while throwing for 379 yards against a Panthers defense focused on shutting down the backfield.
