The Minnesota Vikings pulled off one of the all-time shockers against New Orleans in their divisional round playoff game Sunday. Down 24-23 with just 25 seconds left – with just one timeout on their own 20-yard line – Case Keenum and company almost seemed resigned to the fact their season was about to end. But lightning struck in the form of an improbable 61-yard, walk-off touchdown pass to Stefon Diggs. 29-24 Vikings.
Twitter nearly broke, and the influx of athlete’s reactions to the miraculous ending was pretty cool. Here is an assortment of the best we could find.

Diggs play is right next to Joe and Jacoby’s in Denver for the greatest plays ever! (I’m biased)
