New Orleans Saints fans have fallen to pieces after seeing the Minnesota Vikings beat them on a last second touchdown pass from Case Keenum to Stefon Diggs.
Things are not going well in The Big Easy, or Saints Twitter at the moment. The New Orleans Saints were merely seconds away from advancing to the 2017 NFC Championship over the snake-bitten Minnesota Vikings.
Then venom struck Who Dat Nation in the form of a 61-yard touchdown bomb from Vikings quarterback Case Keenum to wide receiver Stefon Diggs. Instead, it would be the hometown Vikings who would advance to the NFC Championship versus the Philadelphia Eagles instead of the Saints.
That was one of the worst collapses to end a game on a single play you will ever see. New Orleans had done a remarkable job of fixing its defense under defensive coordinator Dennis Allen during the regular, but what on Planet Earth was that?
Diggs should not have been able to scamper like 40 yards to game-winning pay dirt like that. It was a surreal and strange moment in what has already been a weird NFL playoffs so far. To think we have three more games where literally anything can happen.
Get your head around this. At least one of these three quarterbacks will be in Super Bowl LII: Keenum, Nick Foles or Blake Bortles. The only proven commodity at quarterback this season is the G.O.A.T. that is Tom Brady of the New England Patriots.
Saints fans have to be besides themselves, but this loss is going to sting for a very, very long time. These fans have made Twitter erupt into a fiery blaze of madness that you’re just going to have to see for yourself. While the Twin Cities celebrate, NOLA is completely broken after this heartbreaking loss.
While Vikings fans will rejoice most magnificent in the freezing cold, Saints fans will not be enjoying themselves this evening down on the Gulf Coast. What a crazy ending to one of the craziest playoff games you will ever see.
