‘The Minneapolis Miracle’ Sends Vikings to NFC Championship
Case Keenum connects on a miraculous 61-yard touchdown to Stefon Diggs as the game clock expires to send the Minnesota Vikings past the New Orleans Saints and into the NFC Championship Game next weekend.
The final: 29-24.
What's been dubbed 'The Minneapolis Miracle' was the cap to one heck of a game.
The Vikings built an early 17-0. Drew Brees threw three touchdown passes to rally the Saints to a 21-20 advantage in the fourth quarter.
From there,the Vikings responded with a Kai Forbath 53-yard field goal to regain the lead. The Saints answered with their own go-ahead field as Wil Lutz hit from 43 yards to make it 24-23 New Orleans with just 25 seconds to play.
Obviously, the Keenum-Diggs-connection followed and delivered a devastating knockout to New Orleans.
The Vikings visit Philadelphia in the NFC title game next Sunday.
In the AFC, the Patriots will host Jacksonville following the Jags' 45-42 stunner in Pittsburgh.
