The Vikings are expected to use the same offensive line configuration in Sunday's NFC championship game at Philadelphia.

"I think everybody kind of blacked out", safety Harrison Smith said. I could have done a whole lot of things better.

"Like I said, if you want to talk about the game", Bradford said.

But Sunday's Minnesota Vikings-New Orleans Saints game was every bit the roller coaster for the betting community, as well.

Receiver Stefon Diggs' leaping grab turned into a 61-yard touchdown in the closing seconds, immediately cementing Sunday's game as an all-timer.

"Nobody thinks we could do it", Diggs said.

"You've got to save the game", said Williams, a second-round pick from Utah.

Minnesota forced a 3-and-out to start the game and marched 55 yards for the first touchdown.

The spread for the NFC divisional playoff game fluctuated throughout the week between 4.5 and 5.5 points with the Vikings as the favorites. "I don't know how many, but an very bad lot of people that were really happy, Minnesotans that were really, really happy about how this thing went down". The Vikings ran a few plays on the ensuing drive but in the end, found themselves on their own 39-yard line with 10 seconds to play. "But I'm gonna take it upon myself to do all that I can to make sure nothing like this happens again to me".

The Saints rallied back after the Vikings commanded a 17-0 lead in the first half.

On the next play, Rhodes lined up right on Thomas, who beat him off the line of scrimmage on a crossing route.

Saints defensive end Cameron Jordan made similar comments, saying he blamed himself for not getting enough pressure on quarterback Case Keenum, who was able to deliver the deep throw. "He's going to make more great plays than mistakes, and I'm just excited for the kid". They quickly racked up 21 points against one of the best defenses in recent memory in one half to give the Saints the lead. He returned to Philadelphia for an October 23, 2016, game, completing 24 of 41 passes for 224 yards with one touchdown and an interception in the Vikings' 21-10 loss. They went on to win the game 28-20. Wagering on the National Football League is up again this year, and most bookies say they expect a record Super Bowl handle, no matter which teams make it to the big game.
