After the Minnesota Vikings beat the New Orleans Saints in a last second play, Twitter immediately went nuclear in the 29-24 win that ended in a last second touchdown pass by Case Keenum.
The Vikings led the game 17-0 going into the half, but Drew Brees and the Saints were able to claw their way back to the lead in the final minute of the game with a field goal, but the game shockingly ended in a Vikings 61-yard touchdown right as the last seconds ticked off the clock. The crazy finish pits the Vikings against the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC Championship Game.
Below are a few of Twitter’s best reactions to the thrilling touchdown:

This mistake by Marcus WILLIAMS — missing that play on Stefon Diggs — May be the absolute WORST MISTAKE I’ve ever seen in NFL Post-Season History. If it’s not THE worst it’s certainly up there. All the man had to do is make a tackle and the game is over. Horrible, Horrible Error.

That’s the worst play I’ve ever seen a safety make. At any level of football.
