Another “Minneapolis Miracle” Video? Sure, why not?

New, comments

This one features a few different perspectives

NFL: NFC Divisional Playoff-New Orleans Saints at Minnesota Vikings Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

We’ve seen plenty of different perspectives on the “Minneapolis Miracle” over the course of the past five months. (Yeah, it’s been almost five months.) But, since it was so awesome, what’s wrong with one more?

This one comes from the video series “How It Happened” from FaceBook Watch, which I believe is a relatively new service that they provide.

Stefon Diggs | The Minneapolis Miracle

The Minneapolis Miracle himself, Stefon Diggs describes the moment he caught the game winning touchdown for the Vikings against the Saints. It was the last catch and boy was it beautiful.

This one has three different people talking about the play and what they were thinking when it happened. One, obviously, is Minnesota Vikings’ wide receiver Stefon Diggs, who the play centered around. We also hear from tight end Kyle Rudolph, who was on the field when the play happened as well. The third voice we hear in the video is that of Diggs’ younger brother, Trevon Diggs (who won a college football title with the Alabama Crimson Tide earlier that week). The younger Diggs was in the stands at U.S. Bank Stadium that night.

I’m sure there are folks out there that think we’ve run this play into the ground at this point, but come on. . .seriously. It’s still great. And it’s nice to hear a couple of different perspectives on it as well. On top of that, I sort of dig the animation style. Personally, it’s going to be a very, very long time before I get tired of watching or hearing about this one.

So, enjoy yet another look at the Minneapolis Miracle, folks.
