I've watched a lot of football over the years, and tonight's finish was a miracle. A lifetime of Vikings bad endings almost seemed totally wiped away in one magical play.

The radio call was perfect pandemonium:

Then, as my heartbeat returned to normal, I soon realized it was only the NFC Divisional playoff. The past can only be wiped out by two more wins, including a win in the biggest game in football three weeks from today. However, this was a helluva start. Stefon Diggs even seemed to know it was a miracle.

It also quickly reminded me of being on the miracle side some 13 years ago. I bet you remember this miracle play that begins at the 2-minute mark of the video below. It's great to be a Hawkeye and it's great to be a Viking. Two wins to go. Two more.
