Two great Kirk Cousins passes in overtime propel the Vikes to San Francisco and the NFC divisional round.
You may have been among those who were confident that the Vikings could find a way to win against the favored Saints.
I was not. Yeah, I thought they had an outside chance but I most definitely wasn’t brimming over with confidence.
And, I confess to an encroaching sense of dread during the fourth quarter of Sunday’s game. They were seemingly giving that wily old veteran, Drew Brees, too many opportunities to complete the comeback.
But, in the end, the Saints went marching in…..to their off season.
Yes, the Vikings and Brett Favre lost the 2009 NFC championship game to the Drew Brees led Saints. But, we’ve now beaten the boys from “the big easy” 4 out of 5 times in the playoffs.
Who dat? Those are The Minnesota Vikings leaving The Crescent City with a victory.
“If you’re going to San Francisco………Be sure to wear……….some purple in your hair.”
