Former U.N.I. standout Benny Sapp has stepped up for the Minnesota Vikings this season and with one more victory will be playing in the Super Bowl. Sapp became a starting corner for the Vikings nearly midway through the season when Antoine Walker was injured and has responded with a career high 43 tackles.
Viking’s defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier says Sapp and the entire secondary will need to play well against Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints in the NFC championship game. Frzaier says it’s hard to say how they will attack them.
The Vikings held the Dallas Cowboys top just three points last week and Sapp says Frazier deserves much of the credit. He says Frazier called a good game and they won and now they have to get ready for the next game.
Sapp says the defense faces a big challenge against the Saints, as he says everyone knows about Drew Breeze. He says they will have to match the Saints intensity.
