The eyes of the football world will be in the Mercedes-Benz Super Dome on Sunday.

NFL: Preseason-Minnesota Vikings at New Orleans Saints Chuck Cook-USA TODAY Sports

For the second week in a row, fan confidence is at an all-time high for the New Orleans Saints. Saints fans were one of two fanbases to exhibit 100% confidence in the current status of their team - the other being the AFC’s #1 seed, the Baltimore Ravens.

Of note, the opponent for the New Orleans Saints this Sunday, the Minnesota Vikings, do not have a fanbase with similar confidence. Vikings fans only had 37% fan confidence entering the Wild Card round, down 29% from Week 16.

In addition to the usual FanPulse questions surveyed by SB Nation, another question was posed: which Wild Card game are you most excited to see this weekend?

- Titans vs. Patriots 34%

- Bills vs. Texans 14%

- Vikings vs. Saints 31%

- Seahawks vs. Eagles 21%

The Saints and Vikings were the second-most anticipated game of Wild Card weekend, and significantly more so than their Sunday afternoon counterpart, the other NFC playoff game between the Seattle Seahawks and the Philadelphia Eagles.
