NEW ORLEANS -- Percy Harvin of the Minnesota Vikings and Jeremy Shockey of the New Orleans Saints are active for Sunday's NFC Championship game.
Harvin missed three practices with migraine headaches this week, a problem that has plagued him all season. But the Offensive Rookie of the Year is ready for Minnesota's first conference title game in nine seasons.

ESPN.com's Kevin Seifert writes about all things NFC North in his division blog.
New Orleans tight end Shockey missed practices this week with a sore right knee, but is going to play. So is wideout Robert Meachem, who has been dealing with a sprained right ankle.
Saints CB Malcolm Jenkins is out with a hamstring problem.
Vikings DLs Kevin Williams and Ray Edwards were both questionable with knee injuries, but are active.
The third quarterbacks are Sage Rosenfels for Minnesota and Chase Daniel for New Orleans.
Meanwhile, Brett Favre said that he believes that crowd noise in New Orleans will be a huge factor. He will wear all of the Vikings plays on a wristband for the first time this season.
