Saints vs. Vikings: NFC Wild Card playoff preview, times & more

The New Orleans Saints and the Minnesota Vikings will meet in the NFC Wild Card round opposite of the Philadelphia Eagles and Seattle Seahawks.

The Saints come into the game as one of the best teams in the NFL even as the No. 3 seed in the NFC playoff bracket. The Saints have a 13-3 record and are the reigning NFC South division champions.

NEW ORLEANS SAINTS’ MIKE THOMAS SETS SINGLE-SEASON RECEPTIONS RECORD

Drew Brees and company helped solidify their spot in the playoffs in Week 17 with a blowout 42-10 win over the Carolina Panthers. He finished the season with 27 touchdown passes and 2,979 passing yards despite only playing in 11 games because of an early-season injury.

The Vikings will have to contend with Alvin Kamara and Michael Thomas along with Brees on offense along with a defense that has been one of the better ones in the Brees and Sean Payton era.

But the focus of the Saints’ run through the playoffs will be their revenge after last season’s blow call that essentially cost them a chance at the Super Bowl. It will be in the back of everyone’s mind as they kick off in the first round of the playoffs.

The Vikings are back in the playoffs for the first time since the 2017 season. It is their third playoff appearance under coach Mike Zimmer.

The pressure will be on Kirk Cousins to step up in the playoffs. He’s only appeared in two career playoff game and that was when he was with the Washington Redskins. He has not won a playoff game.

Minnesota will hope to have Dalvin Cook back on offense to carry the load as well. He’s been out with a shoulder injury.

The Vikings are 19-11 all-time against the Saints and have won three of their four playoff matchups. The Vikings beat the Saints in the playoffs in 2014 thanks to a miracle touchdown pass from Case Keenum to Stefon Diggs. Minnesota fans will be hoping for the same result.

49ers win NFC West title thanks to heroic stop at 1-yard line against Seahawks

San Francisco 49ers linebacker Dre Greenlaw made a heroic stop of Seattle Seahawks tight end Jacob Hollister at the 1-yard line preventing a go-ahead touchdown and solidifying an NFC West title.

Hollister caught the pass from Russell Wilson right before the goal line and was immediately met by Greenlaw. Hollister appeared to have gotten the ball across the plane but his shoulder hit the ground before the ball was actually across the line.

 MARSHAWN LYNCH SCORES TD IN RETURN WITH SEAHAWKS, DOUSED IN SKITTLES

San Francisco won the game 26-21 and claimed their first NFC West division title since the 2012 season

Before the final few plays, the Seahawks got the ball on the 1-yard line and spiked the ball before taking another snap. However, confusion from the offense drew a delay-of-game penalty and forced the Seahawks back further and appeared to have cost them in the end.

49ers running back Raheem Mostert scored two rushing touchdowns and Deebo Samuel had his own rushing touchdown in the win.

The Seahawks got two touchdown passes from Wilson – one to Tyler Lockett and the other to D.K. Metcalf. Marshawn Lynch scored a rushing touchdown in his first game back with Seattle.

The 49ers solidify the No. 1 seed in the NFC playoffs and home-field advantage throughout the playoffs.

Marshawn Lynch scores TD in return with Seahawks, doused in Skittles

Marshawn Lynch must have felt right at home in his return to the Seattle Seahawks’ backfield Sunday night against the San Francisco 49ers.

Lynch ran for a touchdown on the goal line to cut the 49ers’ lead to five points in the fourth quarter.

The running back then celebrated in typical Lynch fashion by shaking the hands of his teammates and fans doused him in Skittles.

Lynch last scored a touchdown with the Seahawks on Nov. 11, 2015, against the Arizona Cardinals. It was his last game with the Seahawks before he re-joined them earlier this week.

Prior to re-joining Seattle, he was last spotted on Dec. 15 in the RingCentral Coliseum parking lot in Oakland prior to the Raiders’ final home game, serving tequila shots to fans.

Lynch recently said in an interview posted on YouTube that he would consider returning to the Seahawks because “We got history there. We got unfinished business.”

During his time in Seattle, he ran for 6,347 yards and 57 touchdowns. He joined the Raiders prior to the start of the 2017 season and played 21 games for them.

He was only signed for the Week 17 game against the 49ers and for the Seahawks’ run through the playoffs.

Tom Homan: Prepare for ‘out-of-control border’ if Dem wins in 2020: ‘This will cause the country to collapse’

Westlake Legal Group ap18018076601357 Tom Homan: Prepare for 'out-of-control border' if Dem wins in 2020: 'This will cause the country to collapse' Yael Halon fox-news/us/immigration/illegal-immigrants fox-news/us/immigration/border-security fox-news/topic/border-wall fox-news/shows/the-next-revolution fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox news fnc/media fnc article 9dca7f73-9120-5737-ab8e-981e0f157461

Former acting Director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement [ICE] Thomas Homan warned Democrats seeking the White House in 2020 against “enticing” illegal immigrants with lax immigration policies, in an interview that aired Sunday, saying America could face an “out-of-control border” if a Democrat unseats President Trump.

“They say they care about these people, they care about children dying and women being raped… they need to look in the mirror because if you keep offering enticements… ‘sanctuary cities’… free health care… in-state tuition… people are going to put themselves in harm’s way to come to this country,” Homan told Steve Hilton on “The Next Revolution.”

“This president has gotten the border down 65 percent… on his own, and at the same time, you’ve got the Democratic Party throwing out more enticements,” he continued.

TOM HOMAN: 2020 DEMS MAKING PROMISES TO ILLEGALS WILL ‘GUARANTEE’ TRUMP WIN

“Do they think that’s gonna help the border?” he added. “When you say, ‘I want to abolish ICE, we want to end immigration detention, we want to give you free health care…’ when you throw these enticements out, more people are going to come to this country illegally,” Homan reiterated.

Illegal border crossings have dropped roughly 65 percent in recent months from a May 2019 peak.

Speaking at a recent rally in California, Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt, extended his “Medicare-for-all plan” to include illegal immigrants.

“Public colleges and universities tuition-free — that includes, as I said earlier, undocumented young people,” he added.

During a recent primary debate, South Bend, IndianaMayor Pete Buttigieg said that he would commit to financial compensation for thousands of migrant children separated from their families at the southern border and that they should have a “fast track” to citizenship.

“If they make success out of these promises they make, why wouldn’t you come here?” Homan asked.

“I’ll tell you what, if they win the election in 2020, this country’s in trouble,” he continued. “You’re gonna see an out-of-control border like you’ve never seen it before.”

He added, “This is going to cause this country to collapse.”

Marijuana legalization in Illinois, Michigan could trigger interstate tangling

The recreational market selling marijuana is coming to the Midwestern states, and the expensive, challenging industry is bringing a patchwork of legal and cultural snares.

The start of legal sales in Michigan on Dec. 1 and in Illinois on Jan. 1 brings a climate to the Midwest where some neighboring states allow limited marijuana use for medical purposes. But, none other has moved to permit recreational use.

Officials have been renewing warnings against the dangers of “canna-tourism” and carrying marijuana products over state lines, The Associated Press reported.

CDC CONFIRMS BLACK MARKET THC VAPING PRODUCTS MAIN SOURCE OF DEADLY OUTBREAK

In Michigan, where $4.7 million of recreational marijuana was sold in the first three weeks of December, regulators said they did not know how much was bought by out-of-state customers. But, many shop owners said business has been brisk, particularly from neighboring Ohio and Indiana and nearby Illinois.

“There’s been people from all over,” said Bart Kupczyk, a co-owner and director of retail at Ann Arbor-based Greenstone Provisions, one of 23 Michigan retailers licensed for adult-use recreational sales. “Ann Arbor is close to Ohio. It’s a destination city in its own right as a fairly well-known college town.”

Some 45 miles to the south in Morenci, a town of 2,100 people along the Ohio border, a dispensary has reported that a majority of its customers hailed from Ohio, where only medical marijuana has been legal. Another retailer in Morenci secured its state license last week.

CONGRESS RAISES NATIONAL TOBACCO AGE TO 21 AS PART OF SPENDING PACKAGE

“It is important for residents of Ohio and nonresidents traveling through the state to understand possession of marijuana remains a criminal violation in Ohio, even if it is purchased legally in another state which permits recreational use,” said Staff Lt. Craig Cvetan, public affairs commander for the Ohio State Highway Patrol.

Illinois is the 11th state to allow marijuana’s use and sale broadly, shrinking early states’ market advantages and abilities to draw tourists.

Illinois marijuana company executives said they’ve trained employees to remind nonresidents that their products cannot legally be transported across state lines and can be consumed only in private homes or hotels that permit it.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Running back Trey Ragas had 11 rushing touchdowns this season as well. Wide receiver Ja’Marcus Beasley has led with 53 catches for 818 yards and eight touchdowns.

The Kansas Jayhawks men’s basketball team returned safely to a California airport Sunday after their team place suffered engine failure while returning home, forcing the pilot to make an emergency landing.

The Jayhawks were returning to Lawrence, Kan., when the Swift Air 737 passenger jet’s engine gave out. The pilot had to turn around and return to the San Jose Airport.

The school’s athletics department tweeted that the team was about 20 minutes into the flight when the aircraft turned around.

“Upon our return flight home from San Jose, CA, roughly 20 minutes into the flight, one of the engines failed,” the school tweeted. “The pilot immediately contacted the San Jose Airport where we returned and made a safe landing. We are grateful to the pilots and the entire flight crew of Swift Air. We will stay the night in San Jose and return to Lawrence once the plans have been finalized.”

Ryan White, Kansas’ senior associate athletic director, tweeted a frightening video after the team landed safety. The video showed flames shooting from the engine.

GOP Senator: Trump Is Not A Role Model For Young People

Westlake Legal Group 5e094f0b2400009a1c5a47f4 GOP Senator: Trump Is Not A Role Model For Young People

Sen. James Lankford (R-Okla.) on Sunday said he does not think President Donald Trump “as a person is a role model for a lot of different youth.”

Lankford’s comments came during an interview with CBS News’ “Face The Nation” with Sen. Chris Coons (D-Del.), after host Margaret Brennan asked the Republican lawmaker to comment on the president’s morality.

“During the Clinton impeachment, we often heard from Republicans that criticism and the call for an American president to be a moral leader. And we heard about moral failings,” Brennan said during the interview, which aired on Sunday. “These days you will quietly hear criticism of the president from Republicans, but you don’t hear that loud criticism in the way we did 20 years ago. What has changed?”

“I’m not sure if anything has changed,” the Oklahoma Republican replied. “There’s still this ongoing conversation about policy and about responsible leadership and about role models.”

“I don’t think that President Trump as a person is a role model for a lot of different youth, that’s just me personally,” he added. “I don’t like the way that he tweets, some of the things that he says, his word choices at times are not my word choices.”

He said he believes it has been a “real challenge” to find ways to work with Trump.

“I’ll tell you that praying for the president is probably one of the greatest spiritual challenges I’ve had to work through in my life,” he said.

Still, Lankford said that there are policy areas that he and the president agree upon and have worked together on.

Trump has “been very, very protective of areas like life and very protective of areas of religious liberty to be able to allow people to be able to live their faith out,” he said.

The joint interview with Lankford and Coons follows recent debate among various Christian leaders about the president’s character and morality, sparked by an editorial written by Christianity Today editor-in-chief Mark Galli.

The piece, published in the leading evangelical magazine, called for Trump’s removal from office. Galli argued that the impeachment hearings illustrated that the president had violated the constitution, and in doing so, demonstrated that he was “profoundly immoral.”

Nearly 200 evangelical leaders pushed back against the op-ed, slamming Galli for “offensively” dismissing their support for the president. 

But Galli stood behind the op-ed, arguing that the benefits of the president’s anti-abortion policies were no longer worth the trade-off of tolerating his “bad” moral character.

Trump blasted Christianity Today in response, labelling it a “far-left magazine,” and claiming that he had “done more for the Evangelical community” than any other president.

He has since ramped up attempts to court evangelical voters, including an announcement that he would visit Miami to launch a “Evangelicals for Trump” coalition on January 3.
