Stefon Diggs scores game-winning TD in the last second - NFL fans go crazy

What just happened!? In the craziest ending to an NFL Playoff game in years, nay decades, the Minnesota Vikings won that football game. 

With the game on the line, 61-yards from the end-zone with less than 10 seconds left to play - the New Orleans Saints managed to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory - leaving the Vikings to advance to the NFC Title game. 

Stefon Diggs will never have to buy a beer in Minnesota ever again. Neither will Saints safety Marcus Williams, whose completely awful attempt at a tackle will write his name down in infamy as being the man that gifted the Vikes the chance to play for a place in the Super Bowl.

Here's how it all went down. New Orleans kicked a 43-yard field goal with just 29 seconds left on the clock - a kick that sucked the life out of the Minnesota fans in attendance.

But one big pass from Case Keenum - and an embarrassing whiff from Williams, who completely missed his tackle attempt on Diggs, changed everything.

At first it seemed like Diggs would just gain enough yardage to set up a long field goal attempt. A split second later, it was clear he’d walk untouched into the end zone, the consequence of the biggest blown coverage of 2018. 

The Vikings strolled into the NFC Championship game, the crowd went wild, so did literally every Vikings player, and so did the entirety of social media. 

There were so many reactions to the play that it is impossible and fruitless to post individual tweets - so here are screenshots of the entire Twitter feed. It was madness, with everyone from Johnny Manziel to Marquette King expressing their incredulation.




And then came the hate for Marcus Williams, who may not want to check any of his social media pages for the next few days or weeks...


But ignore that. What really matters is that we all just saw a moment that will go down in NFL history. The Miracle in Minneosta. 14/01/2018. We were witnesses.
