Sioux Empire Vikings Fans React to "Minneapolis Miracle" Game

Sioux Empire Vikings Fans React to

Which performance from the Minnesota Vikings outside of the top 5 players do you think deserves recognition for their play against the New Orleans Saints?

"It was an exciting game", said Saints coach Sean Payton. I wouldn't say there's nerves at that point.

And Payton said the Saints had the right call on the play - an outside zone created to protect the sidelines since a throw in the middle of the field would have ended the game. They had hoped that she would provide the team with some good luck and she might have because the Vikings were hanging by a thread until they made a miraculous comeback with a walk-off touchdown pass from Case Keenum to Stefon Diggs. "The ball was in the air, and I didn't go attack it".

A day after Diggs' dramatic touchdown, some Vikings players still had a hard time fathoming what transpired.

Next week the Vikings will head to Philadelphia to face off against the Eagles for the conference championship title.

"It's a turning point for us", Diggs said. Everybody makes mistakes. It wasn't even him. Brees threw two interceptions in the divisional round loss to the Vikings but in the second half proved why he still is among the NFL's most valuable quarterbacks, driving the Saints to what could have been the game-winning field goal in less than a minute.

"You've got to save the game", said Williams, a second-round pick from Utah.

"In the state championship game", Sandifer said, "he had a 50 yard run to set up a 25-yard field goal to win the game on the last play".

"All he's [Williams] got to do is make a play", Troy Aikman said on the Fox Sports replay as he rewatched Williams crashing into another Saints defender. "I woke up this morning and made sure it wasn't a dream".

The clock had ticked down to zero, and Minnesota fans were already deep into a celebration like no other.

All that served as a prelude to four lead changes in the last 3:01, including the final one.

Before a concussion knocked him out of the game, the safety was making some great plays and showing solid coverage skills.

All-pro cornerback Xavier Rhodes claims to have watched the play more than anyone. "You're doing everything you can to win the game".

The comeback from 17-0 would've been the second biggest comeback in playoff history behind the falcons collapse in the Super Bowl previous year.
