Wow what a game. One of the most exciting finishes I have seen. Saints down 17 come all the way back to take the lead. Team's trade the lead many times in the last few minutes only to see Vikings win with a miracle finish on the last play of the game.

I was in a sportsbook and the crowd was going nuts. Lots of screaming right until the clock ran out. Your team was winning.....then losing....then winning....etc. Unbelievable.

Worst missed tackle to end a game in history!

Yes it sure was a missed tackle. All he had to do was stop him and they win the game. That will stay with him the rest of his career.

What do you mean? He freed up that receiver to just trot it in with that brilliant block on the cornerback! Lol

I was about to ask. Anyone here get completely screwed with a Saints +4/+4.5 ticket? It seemed that +5 was available today.

I had the Saints teased, so I just enjoyed the show (woulda liked to see Brees win though).

I think the Vikings made the usually fatal mistake of celebrating at halftime.

The guy that mis-defended the last play was so scared of pass interference penalty he just wanted to force Diggs to stay in bounds. He did achieve his objectives.

Oops.

SKOL!

That was exhilarating. I thought they'd blown it for sure. I was hollering like a crazy woman. Can't believe both defenders just went by him on the reception and there was nobody deep to stop the run.

However, if he gets out of bounds, or they get a penalty, they have the clock stopped and a couple seconds to get the field goal kicked, well in range and an indoor stadium, home field. So I think they win anyway.

This was much more fun.

They configured for a 2 PT conversion and knelt. Didn't want to chance a blocked PAT runback. Or any kind of cough-up on the conversion.

Took them about 10 minutes, maybe more, to clear the field. Saints had already left and had to come back out. Very anticlimactic. Except it was hysterical when Keenum led the crowd in the Skol chant FROM THE OFFENSIVE LINE while they were waiting for the Saints to come back. Nobody had left, either. Full stands hollering the whole time.
