No. 1 – 2017 NFC Divisional Round Playoff Game versus New Orleans Saints
Wideout Stefon Diggs hauls in sideline catch from quarterback Case Keenum and scampers 61 yards to a walk-off touchdown.
Foremost, it is unlikely this moment will ever be topped in a Vikings home game, ever. It’s not to say future moments will not be influential, but this game-ending play was the exclamation point to a stomach-churning day.
A 17-0 halftime by the Vikings was coughed away. It evaporated in, what felt like, a prophetic and inevitable manner. Miscues and familiar playoff follies by Minnesota started prodding at the belly of the box score.
An intelligible argument can be made that the “Miracle” reputation of the game was not that Diggs serendipitous broke through for the touchdown. Instead, the “Miracle” aspect was that the Vikings somehow avoided an all-too-customary snakebitten turn of events.
