Vikings stay up late to watch replays of Diggs' miraculous catch

The Minnesota Vikings did not want to talk too much about the Eagles early Monday afternoon and you really could not blame them. The Vikings moved Bradford into the No. 2 spot on the quarterback depth chart Sunday and deactivated Teddy Bridgewater against New Orleans. An airborne Diggs made the catch and avoided the hit, and Williams crashed into teammate Ken Crawley as Minnesota's miracle quickly became reality. Perhaps he gets tackled in bounds.

Diggs waited for contact that never came. When Saints safety Marcus Williams missed Diggs, the third-year receiver was allowed to race untouched to the end zone. In the first quarter, Brees threw six passes, completing one to his team and one to the Vikings. Brees found Michael Thomas for a 14-yard scoring strike with 1:18 left, cutting the margin to 17-7.

The game capped a weekend that for the most part was spectacular for sports books, which won big on Jacksonville's, win over Pittsburgh and also cashed in on Philadelphia's home underdog win over Atlanta.

"I think they did a wonderful job", Wall said, according to Fox 9.


"We tried to get into field goal range, but I don't even know what just happened", Keenum said. "I can't explain it. People were sending me social media stuff of the play from all these different angles".

Sean Payton made a couple of curious challenges in the second half, explaining that the Saints' replay monitor was down "for a handful of plays", meaning coaches had to take a risk when advising their head coach. "Just what this organization has been through, what we as a group have been through if you think back to the last time we were in the playoffs, and then just rewind over the last two years of all the injuries and all the adversity we faced". Why can't we have nice things?

"I can't even explain it", Keenum said. Each led to Saints touchdowns. She suffered through four Super Bowl losses in the 1970s, and agonized when Dallas' Drew Pearson seemed to push off Vikings defender Nate Wright to catch a Hail Mary touchdown pass in a 1975 playoff game to give the Cowboys a shocking victory. A 13-yard Brees pass to Willie Sneed extended the game just enough for another Vikings' collapse.

Zimmer did not actually see Diggs cross the goal line. It would be a bit hard to pray for another season-saving play if you don't at least show up and say thank you for the first one.
