Vikings fans react to four-year anniversary of the Minneapolis Miracle

By Jordy McElroy

Where were you when the Minnesota Vikings completed one of the most improbable plays in postseason history against the New Orleans Saints to punch their ticket to the 2017 NFC Championship game?

It’s hard to believe that it’s been four years to the day since then quarterback Case Keenum threw a 27-yard pass to receiver Stefon Diggs, who leapfrogged Saints defensive back Marcus Williams to make the grab, before turning upfield and taking it to the house for a 61-yard touchdown.

I remember watching as my brother, a devout Saints fan, was literally brought to his knees as the Vikings ripped the heart out of the chest of every Saints fan.

The excitement from a deserving Minnesota fan base that had patiently waited for their opportunity to get back to the NFC title game is something I’ll never forget about that moment.

It’s something Vikings fans are taking the time to celebrate on this day in particular.
