The Minnesota Vikings give their fans a win they deserve

Minnesota Vikings' superfan Millie Wall, 99, went to her first playoff game Sunday to watch her team beat the New Orleans Saints in a 29-24 victory.

Here, courtesy of TecmoBowlers, is yesterday's cathartic finish to the New Orleans Saints-Minnesota Vikings divisional playoff contest. "Just didn't get the tackle this time". I was proud of our players, though.

"You just had to bear it", Wall said reluctantly. You see it on people's posts. Why can't we have nice things? "I'm going to take it upon myself to do all I can to never let that happen again".

"Oh yeah ... in our game, if you play it long enough you have some wins like that and some losses", he said.

"I went home and watched it on ESPN and I kept rewinding it about a thousand times, like it was insane", he said. The Eagles, who defeated Atlanta 15-10 on Saturday, have had an extra day of rest.

The Saints had come back from a 17-0 deficit, and the Vikings hadn't lost when leading by 10 or more since the start of the 2015 season (28-0). Still, the Vikings are 1-4 in NFC championship games on the road, losing the past four.

Diggs was dumbfounded. He said thank God for the win and then "damn that was incredible hahah". He didn't speak to the media Monday with the exception of saying about his celebrating, "I'm over that".

Coach Mike Zimmer said Bradford's impeccable play in the season opener against the Saints, during which he threw for 346 yards and three touchdowns, was a factor in making him the backup after seeing him in six practices after his latest knee surgery.

"They need to change that rule", Bogdanovich said.

But the second half was far from comfortable for the hosts.

"It was just my play to make", Williams said.

Still, that recess style isn't always good. "I'm not going to say he's not feeling bad about the play, but we've got his back". It wasn't Marcus. Marcus is a great player, he's a young player and has a bight future ahead of him.

"Nobody thought we could do it", Diggs said. "I woke up this morning and made sure it wasn't a dream". The highlight of the night came in the final moments of the game when he caught a pass from Case Keenum and managed to stay inbounds while sprinting for the walk-off touchdown. The celebrating is over.

It's for that reason that more than 24 hours later fans are still trying to wrap their heads around the "Minneapolis Miracle". We saw the timeout, and we knew there was still a possibility.
