Saints' Payton on using 'Skol' clap: 'Good playoff fun'

Saints' Payton on using 'Skol' clap: 'Good playoff fun'

Talk about sweet, sweet revenge for the Vikings and their fan base after the 2009 NFC title game loss to Payton's Saints and the Bountygate fiasco.

By the time Robinson walked back inside, his friends were eagerly awaiting to tell him what he missed.

After a 19-yard grab by Diggs and two incomplete passes, the Vikings faced a third down with 10 seconds on the clock and no timeouts. Blocks by Adam Thielen, David Morgan and Riley Reiff kept a lane open for McKinnon, who made a smooth landing into the end zone. The Eagles' defensive front generates more pressure than anybody. "So keeping him off the field was a big-time point of what to do, and I thought we executed that well".

Now, there's just one element missing.their good luck charm needs to be with the team when they play the Eagles. "That might be like one of the worst plays I've ever seen". Do I feel like this team has what it takes? But, I mean, I don't know, man. In order to move the needle when covering Gronk - unless you have a special safety - you need a cornerback. "Today was when all that work paid off. God put me in a position and I just try to take advantage of my opportunity". They are 6-1 in one-possession games in that span and boast a defense that allowed only 17 points in the 14 quarters prior to the second half vs. the Saints.

"It's plays like this that you dream about your whole life", he said, "and it finally happens". It's quite possible that the team will turn to LB Myles Jack to handle the assignment, but the best player on their defense for the job is cornerback Jalen Ramsey. There were two choices.

Besides Stefon's catch, the Diggs family already had a reason to celebrate this year, Stefon's brother, Trevon, plays cornerback for the University of Alabama, which just won the college football championship. "It's a tough situation for that guy". Schwartz didn't want to lose any kind of tactical advantage; the playoffs are stressful times.

Diggs wouldn't say how many messages he has received since the play.

Having been a defensive assistant in Tennessee during the 1999 season, Schwartz was at Adelphia Coliseum on January 8, 2000, when the Titans pulled off the Music City Miracle.

Payton was asked about the gesture at a press conference on Tuesday and said it was directed toward "a group of fans" and was "good playoff fun". "They've proven it all year long", Slater said.

"I wish I would have kept my legs turning a little more", Ham said.
