The NFL playoffs are in full swing and this Wild Card Weekend, you’ll get to see the Minnesota Vikings take on the New Orleans Saints at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. The last time these two teams met in the playoffs in 2018, the Vikings won with a touchdown with no time left on the clock in the fourth quarter. We’re here to make sure you catch every minute of today’s game – see how to get a Vikings vs Saints live stream regardless of where in the world you are and it’s even free to watch in the US thanks to a simple stream.
Minnesota Vikings vs New Orleans Saints – when and where?
The Minnesota Vikings will face off against the New Orleans Saints at the 70,000+ Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana.
Kick-off time is set for 12.05pm local time, so that’s 1.05pm ET, 10.05am PT, 6.05pm GMT or 5.05am AEDT on Monday.
Minnesota finished the regular season 10-6 and the team is the No. 6 seed in the NFC Playoffs. However, the Vikings are going into today’s game coming off of back-to-back losses to the Packers and the Bears. Last Sunday the Vikings took the lead momentarily during the fourth quarter in their game against Chicago but Bears place kicker Eddy Pineiro managed to score a field goal with ten seconds left to win the game. Will Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins be able to win his first playoff game?
New Orleans was the first team to clinch a Playoff spot this season after winning the NFC South and the team ended the regular season 13-3. The Saints are the No. 3 seed in the NFC and the team won its last three games against the Colts, the Titans and the Panthers. Last Sunday, New Orleans destroyed the Panthers 42-10 with running back Alvin Kamara scoring two touchdowns during the first quarter and AJ Klein, Tre’Quan Smith and Jared Cook all scoring touchdowns in the second quarter. Can the Saints defeat the Vikings to get a chance at Super Bowl 2020?
Whether you’re a Vikings fan in Minnesota, a Saints fan in New Orleans or just want to tune in to see today’s NFL playoff rematch – we’ll show you how to get a Vikings vs Saints live stream regardless of where in the world you are so you don’t miss a single play.
Watch the Vikings vs Saints game online from outside your country (or in a blackout)
Watching this game from the US, UK, Canada or Australia? We’ll tell you how to catch the NFL game further down in the article.
But if you’re somewhere else in the world – or if a coverage blackout is stopping you from watching in the US – then there’s still a way you can live stream the Vikings vs Saints online (and you don’t even have to slum it with a grainy, illegal feed you’ve found on Reddit). Instead you could use a VPN – or Virtual Private Network – to change the IP address to one in a different state or country which does have a stream. And it’s not even hard to do.
We’ve tested over 100 VPNs to try and settle on the best and we think that ExpressVPN is the MVP. It’s fast, secure and compatible with loads of devices (including Android, iOS, Amazon Fire TV Stick, Apple TV, Xbox, PlayStation, etc). You can even try it for 30 days for free. That’s why Express takes all the plaudits.
Sign up for ExpressVPN for 12 months now and you’ll get 49% off the usual price as well as an extra 3 months FREE. Great value for such an excellent service.
From there, you simply open the VPN app, hit ‘choose location’ and select the appropriate location – it’s super easy to do. Choose any country showing a live NFL stream and watch as if you were in that country.
How to watch the Vikings vs Saints in the US for free
If you live in the US and have a television, you’ll be able to watch this NFL game live as it airs on Fox. The network will show today’s Vikings vs Saints game at 4.40pm ET / 1.40pm PT but you can also stream it on your mobile devices using the Fox Sports app but you will need to login using the credentials from your cable provider.

Can I watch with the NFL Game Pass?
Well it’s a no and a yes. The NFL Game Pass in the US will only let you watch a replay of the game, but not the live action.
Interestingly, it’s a different story with an International NFL Game Pass where all post season games are being shown absolutely live…shame you can’t officially get access to that if you and your laptop’s IP address is in the US.
