The Vikings pulled off a miracle win over the Saints with a last-second 61-yard touchdown pass

  • Case Keenum connected with Stefon Diggs to give the Minnesota Vikings a miracle 29-24 win over the New Orleans Saints.
  • The miraculous score came after Drew Brees had pulled off a two-minute drill of his own to set the Saints up for the go-ahead field goal with just 29 seconds left in the game.
  • With the win, the Vikings secure their spot in the NFC Championship next weekend, when they will face off against the Eagles in Philadelphia.

Stefon Diggs ran into the end zone as the clock expired on Sunday night, pulling off a Minnesota miracle and sending the Vikings to the NFC Championship.

The Vikings opened up their game in dominant fashion, taking a 17-0 lead into halftime with their ticket to the next round looking all but secured. But the Saints would come back in the second half, culminating in a stunning drive from Drew Brees in the final minute that earned New Orleans the go-ahead field goal with just 29 seconds left on the clock.

All hope looked lost for the Vikings, but Case Keenum was able to push Minnesota to their own 40-yard line with nine seconds remaning on the clock, needing a miracle to win.

The prayer was answered.

Stefon Diggs found an overthrown ball from Keenum on the sideline, a Saints defender inexplicably whiffed on the tackle, and Diggs stayed in bounds to make his improbable run to the end zone.

You can watch the unbelievable play below.

The play is just a miraculous from different angles.

With the win the Vikings secure a spot in the NFC Championship in Philadelphia next weekend. With a win there, the Vikings could return to Minneapolis to become the first team to ever play in a home Super Bowl.

Luck seems to be on their side.
