The Vikings were so excited after stunning Saints they barely knew how to celebrate

Minnesota had a lot to celebrate. They won a playoff game!

The Minnesota Vikings held off a ferocious New Orleans Saints comeback and won the NFC Divisional Round on a last-second 61-yard Hail Mary toss from Case Keenum to Stefon Diggs.

The Vikings hadn’t won a playoff game since they advanced to the NFC Championship in an eventual defeat against — guess who? — the Saints in 2010. Lifting their own curse, the Vikings had a lot to celebrate.

Here’s how they did in the moments after the play:

Case Keenum

Stefon Diggs


Many, many more videos will surface that capture the essence of Minnesota’s wild, wild win over New Orleans. None of them will do the moment justice.

The Vikings are one win away from breaking a Super Bowl curse
