But there was one Vikings player who was too shocked to even move, let alone run across the field to meet Diggs. Still, Keenum said, there are lessons to be learned from the play that can help moving forward.

The Saints have clearly improved on the drafting and free agency selections over the post-Super Bowl years that led them to four 7-9 seasons from 2012 through 2016.

"It was my first playoff experience", Keenum said. "This is a heck of an Eagles team that has an outstanding defense, I can go on and on about this team. He has gotten better and better each week". Keenum will have to use a silent snap count, which will give the Eagles' edge rushers a huge advantage as they come off the ball. Actually, they have about eight of them. Their linebackers are fast.

There was his throw on the run for a touchdown to Adam Thielen in London, a 22-yard run against Chicago, another wild throw with pressure in his face to Thielen against the Rams and on and on. The Vikes played not to lose instead of stepping on their opponent's throat and not allowing them back in the game.

"No doubt, this is a really good front", he said. "That is that I'll be here as long as they'll have me, hopefully".

Brees finished with 294 passing yards, three touchdowns, and two interceptions. But lost in the aftermath of the Saints chaotic loss to the Vikings Sunday was the fact that the Minnesota still had to kick the extra point.

"I was like, 'Holy cow, what happened?' " said Staubach, who watched the game in the Dallas area.

Toward the end of the game, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell took time to visit with her and gave her two tickets to the Super Bowl. With 10 seconds to play, from their own 39, the Vikings had one more shot.

On Sunday, they take on the Philadelphia Eagles, after beating the New Orleans Saints last weekend in a thrilling contest. "The thing went 15 yards. But we're prepared for most situations".

"That was as important a part of that [Hail Mary]". The Rashad catch was a deflection.

Yahoo Sports' Frank Schwab ranked Diggs' catch as the third-most thrilling game-winning moment in National Football League playoff history. There's a few more texts, phone calls, questions, talking to you guys, but those are good problems to have. You got one. You finally got one.

Among other second-half miscues for the Vikings: a fourth-and-10 conversion that kept the Saints' go-ahead touchdown drive alive, a 13-yard pass from Brees to Willie Sneed. Philadelphia ranked fourth in scoring defense (18.4 per game) during the regular season. The Vikings won 29 to 24.

Still the image of Morstead trotting back out on the field, combined with him playing through a rib injury, resonated with Vikings fans. The Patriots scored 31 unanswered points to post a 34-28 victory over the Falcons on February 5.

Griffen's wide-eyed look, stunned initial reaction and eventual "WTF" verbalization of what happened to end the game was an on-field display of what went on throughout U.S. Bank Stadium and during gatherings of Vikings' fans everywhere.

The Vikings had made the playoffs for the first time in franchise history.
