EDIT: I can't believe I didn't think of this on my own, but since Grime brought it up, here's a link to the second half Game Thread from this contest. Man, what a fun read. -Chris
Well, we've been doing these highlight videos for the past few days now, but this one is actually being sponsored by the good folks from Samsung. So, in light of that, I'm going to put another highly requested play up here.
But, since we always strive to provide more, we're not just going to give you the one play. Oh, no. . .we're going to give you the entire drive that led up to it as well.
For those of us that were a bit skeptical about the idea of the Brett Favre Era in Minnesota, I'm pretty sure that this is the point where everybody started buying in. When the Vikings got the ball for their final possession, there was 1:29 left on the clock, Minnesota had no time outs, and they were starting from their own 20-yard line after a touchback on a punt by the 49ers, trailing by a score of 24-20.
The video is about eight and a half minutes long. . .and, yes, if you'd like to skip right to the portion where KFAN announcer and supreme Vikings' homer (not that there's a darn thing wrong with that) Paul Allen loses his mind, it's at the end of the clip.
Enjoy the highlights, ladies and gentlemen!
