The stage was set for more agonizingly predictable, Vikings-induced heartache. Down 23-24 and stuck at their own 39-yard line, the Vikes had 10 seconds to beat the New Orleans Saints in the NFC divisional playoff game at U.S. Bank Stadium. A desperate field goal attempt seemed most likely, but that’d require at least 20 yards and a convincing prayer. Case Keenum and Stefon Diggs had other plans. Keenum calmly dropped back and launched the ball to Diggs, who snatched it from the sky and jetted his way to a walk-off touchdown. “IT’S A MINNEAPOLIS MIRACLE!!!” bellowed radio announcer Paul Allen, sorta hijacking the branding of the 2000 Music City Miracle, but we’ll forgive him—the euphoria of the moment was downright dizzying. Miracles were in short supply during the NFC Championship Game, however, when the Philadelphia Eagles dismantled the Vikings. Still, for a fleeting, transcendent blip in time, nothing topped being a Minnesota sports fan.
