Minnesota Vikings Advance to NFC Championship on Dramatic Game-Ending Touchdown Pass

There was just ten seconds remaining in the NFC Divisional Playoff game on Jan. 14. On a 3rd down-and-ten play, the Minnesota Vikings — down 24-23 to the New Orleans Saints — were on their own 39-yard line and looking to get into at least field goal range.

But time was running out.

But then Vikings quarterback Case Keenum found wide receiver Stefon Diggs on the sideline. Diggs caught the pass and ran it into the endzone for a 61-yard touchdown to win it for the Vikings 29-24.

It is the first-ever “walk-off” touchdown (with no time remaining) in NFL postseason history.

Fox Sports play-by-play Joe Buck called: “Keenum steps into it. Pass is CAUGHT! DIGGS! SIDELINE! TOUCHDOWN! UNBELIEVABLE! VIKINGS WIN IT!
