Minnesota Vikings React to 'Unbelievable' Win Over New Orleans Saints

It would be a bit hard to pray for another season-saving play if you don't at least show up and say thank you for the first one.

"Hundreds", he said. "People are tweeting at you and on Instagram and Facebook. This isn't a case of that".

The Vikings held a comfortable lead throughout most of the game.

Minnesota Vikings-New Orleans Saints was a game for the ages.

"You know, up to the final play I just analyzed where everybody was and then Stefon Diggs caught it".

Diggs waited for contact that never came.

"I went home and watched it on ESPN and I kept rewinding it about a thousand times, like it was insane", he said. The running game wasn't spectacular, with the Vikings gaining 95 yards on 29 carries for an average of 3.3 yards a carry. They have to do that by controlling the line of scrimmage, making plays they've made all season, and keeping the pedal to the metal for the full-time. The only questions remaining were whether Diggs went out of bounds and whether his knee touched the ground when he balanced himself with his hand.

"I figured the play was dead or something's going to happen because that don't happen to us", Barr said.

Someone asked Diggs, 24, if he knew who Drew Pearson was. I don't stop playing till the clock hit zero. "I haven't thought that far ahead yet". He returned to Philadelphia for an October 23, 2016, game, completing 24 of 41 passes for 224 yards with one touchdown and an interception in the Vikings' 21-10 loss. "Obviously he'd like to have that back, but he's been a good player for us all year". "We'll work to correct those and minimize the mistakes in the next game". Why can't we have nice things? Each led to Saints touchdowns.

It's hard to not feel bad for Brees, who now drops to 1-5 in road playoff games and claims the National Football League record for go-ahead touchdowns in the fourth quarter of a playoff loss with three. A 13-yard Brees pass to Willie Sneed extended the game just enough for another Vikings' collapse.

Zimmer did not actually see Diggs cross the goal line.

If the Vikings defeat the Eagles in the NFC Championship game, they will become the first team to earn a bid to the Super Bowl in their home stadium.

The release was palpable. There was the 41-donut two years later in the NFC Championship loss to the New York Giants. Pearson, Gary Anderson, Blair Walsh. gone.

"He's going to have so many opportunities, and he's going to make so many great plays in the future", Te'o said, according to The Times-Picayune.
