Saints Nation: The Key to the Game is how Jermon Bushrod will handle Jared Allen

Young starting left tackle Jermon Bushrod will face what is undoubtedly his toughest test tomorrow when the Saints host the Vikings. He'll go up against Pro Bowler and NFL 2009 Defensive MVP candidate Jared Allen. While Allen didn't win the award, he was in the top 5 in voting, so he's clearly one of the most elite pass rushers in the game. I outlined the matchup HERE. Ultimately, I think the success or failure of the Saints in tomorrow's game will in part rest how Bushrod handles this mammoth challenge. Just 24 hours till kickoff folks, and our beloved Saints will take on the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC Championship in the Superdome.
