The big plays and highlights kept coming for the Minnesota Vikings in the second half of their Week 17 game against the Chicago Bears as the game was still competitive at 16-7 in the 3rd quarter.
A big play involved the Vikings offense. In particular, it involved quarterback Case Keenum and wide receiver Stefon Diggs late in the 3rd quarter after the two teams exchanged punts several times.
Check out the scoring play for the Minnesota Vikings as shared on the official Twitter account of the team:

Diggs was open, but the window was small. The velocity of the catch allowed the ball to arrive just where it needed to be, but the ball bounced off the outside arm of Diggs, making the catch more difficult.
However, the wide receiver adjusted well and used his other arm to corral the catch and establish himself inbounds with the football before falling to the ground.
The touchdown and extra point from kicker Kai Forbath gave the Vikings a 23-7 lead in the closing seconds of the third quarter and put the Vikings hold on the second seed in the NFC a little bit tighter.
Even more fun was the celebration, which featured some fancy dance moves and was also shared by the Vikings on Twitter:
Congratulations to Keenum, Diggs, and the rest of the Minnesota Vikings on executing a fantastic play to put the team in a better position to win their Week 17 contest against the Chicago Bears at U.S Bank Stadium.
