A thing of beauty. One for the history books. Glad I was watching as it happened. If you didn't:

The utterly impossible has unfolded in Minnesota.

A seemingly lost Vikings season turned to gold with Case Keenum's incredible, heaven-touched, last-second, 61-yard touchdown strike to Stefon Diggs to seal a 29-24 victory for Minnesota.

Facing a desperate third-and-10 scenario with seven seconds left and his team trailing 24-23, Keenum unfurled a rope that found a leaping Diggs along the sideline. The star wideout snagged the ball at the New Orleans 34-yard line, avoiding a diving tackle attempt by safety Marcus Williams to race untouched to pay dirt as U.S. Bank Stadium melted into joy.

"I don't have words. I really don't," a beside-himself Keenum told NFL Network's Stacey Dales after the game. "Just tried to throw it up and I can't believe Diggs stayed on his feet. I can't believe he caught it. I can't believe he stayed on his feet. This is awesome."

The Keenum-to-Diggs magic becomes an instant classic in playoff lore, capping a frenzied fourth quarter that saw four lead changes in the final three minutes of play

Miracle, no. Amazing, yes. What I noticed about that play was when Williams missed he took out his cornerback Crawly who, if he wasn't taken out, would have had a good chance of catching Diggs and tackling him.

I saw that too. That was the strange part of it all. The cornerback certainly misjudged by an unusually wide margin. Part of the miracle? :rw) :rw) :rw)

I think the Vikings will call that play over the Saints "Miracle Whip." :)
