The last time the Vikings came close to the Super Bowl, the team needed the “Minneapolis Miracle” to make it to the NFC North title.

K.J. Osborn paid homage to that moment after he scored the game-winning touchdown reception in overtime against the Panthers this week.

Just like Stefon Diggs before him, Osborn threw off his helmet in celebration of the Vikings’ victory. That wasn’t a coincidence, either.

Osborn told Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk that he planned to remove his helmet and throw it, as a specific nod to Diggs and the moment that lives in Vikings history. Osborn finished with six catches for 78 yards.

Osborn’s rise from a possible offseason roster cut to thriving as the team’s third-best wide receiver has certainly been fun for Vikings fans to watch.

With the Week 6 win, Minnesota moves to 3-3. After an 0-2 start, the Vikings salvaged their season before the bye week. For this team, it might take a few miracles to win the Super Bowl this year, but at least it got back on track.
