Saints fans, start digging your graves. That was as bad as it gets, and it's going down in HISTORY as one of the craziest/best/coolest/insane plays in all of football.
Vikings WR Stefon Diggs took a 61-yard touchdown to the house as time expired to give Minnesota a 29-24 win over the Saints and send the team to the NFC Championship Game. What a historic moment for Vikings fans, and pretty much every other fan except those who root for the Saints, Packers, Bears and Lions.
But, without a doubt, the Saints have it the absolute worst. This team is going to get butchered for the foreseeable future after choking that game away in the manner they did.
Twitter is already all over it.
Let's just watch that final highlight with some special music in the background:
Stefon!! HOW DID YOU DO THAT?!
Well, according to him, he was right all along:
Let's see what Trebek has to say about it:
The Saints were ONE PLAY away from advancing to the NFC Championship Game, and surely thought they had it. All they had to do was not give up a touchdown. That's when Diggs decided to step in and let them know the outcome would be much, much different.

As for the man that missed the tackle, Saints safety Marcus Williams, let's just say New Orleans will have a tough time welcoming him back home:

But first, he's gotta face his teammates in the locker room:

That long walk to his locker is going to be a stressful one.
If he was thinking ahead, he'd be getting there before all of his teammates in a bull rush to avoid facing anyone.
I mean, HOW MUCH CLEARER DID SEAN PAYTON HAVE TO BE?!

Well, after blowing among the easiest assignments ever, the Saints will be having a touch time for years to come:

However, the tweet of the night undoubtedly comes from a former Saints player himself.
Congratulations to the Vikings. I'm so in shock I can't move.— Steve Gleason (@TeamGleason) January 15, 2018
Now THAT is a true sense of humor in a time of deep, deep depression.
