Everything is magnified on the road to the Super Bowl.

Neither one was a Week 1 starter, but here we are. Wide receiver Stefon Diggs caught a 61-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Case Keenum on the final play of the game. I have no idea who to give the credit, so I just want you to know this observation doesn't belong to me.

Saints punter Thomas Morstead was the first Saints player to come back to the field for the point after touchdown, even though he was in extreme pain from tearing cartilage on his rib cage from an earlier tackle on Vikings return man Marcus Sherels after his first punt of the game. Keenum proved everyone wrong, impressively leading the Vikings offense to a NFC North division title. Minnesota ranks first at defending running backs in the passing game and second in defending tight ends (per Football Outsiders' DVOA), which could lead to some ill-advised throws by Nick Foles, who won't have any security blankets to rely on. "I think we'll go out and dominate". I know it sounds ridiculous, like we're nearly talking about gangs here, but it's no joke down in Philly. Malcom Jenkins went to Ohio State and is not dead to me, but get back to me Sunday night for an update on that.

"The only thing I'd say is, don't let the team going into the locker room", Payton said. It's unbelievable to be up here.

Kamu Grugier-Hill (ankle), the Eagles' top special teams tackler, landed on the injury report Thursday but said he was "all good" for the game. I know they've got a great defense. Jeffery, of course, will be hoping to provide a reminder to the Vikings' top-rated defense on Sunday about just how big of pain he can be. If Keenum can get the Vikings to the Super Bowl, even if they lose it, he'll command starting quarterback money next year and could very likely get a long-term deal in Minnesota. The Vikings running game ranked seventh during the regular season despite the loss of rookie Dalvin Cook. That will be Keenum with the outcome being the Vikings emerging with a close 23-17 grind-it-out victory and playing Super Bowl LII (52) in their own backyard. As long as Case Keenum takes care of the ball - he has just three interceptions in his last eight games - Minnesota should be able to get a win and head home to host the Super Bowl. The all-time series is tied 13-13, but Philadelphia has won every single postseason matchup and is 3-0.

An act of sportsmanship in the moment of victory was not lost upon Vikings fans during Sunday's match-up with the Saints. Games are now worth 30 multiplied points a game. Andrew Sendejo's 80 tackles and Smith's 78 tackles were second and third on the Vikings roster behind only Eric Kendricks. Any great play - even an incredible Stefon Diggs' walkoff touchdown to save the Vikings' season and end the Saints' playoff run - is diminished by the fans' need to wait for a league official in NY to confirm that the play actually happened as witnessed.

"It meant so much to me to see my quarterback believe in me the last play of the game", said Diggs, who began crying hard enough to cut short and turn away from one of his on-field TV interviews after the winning touchdown. "There's always good and always bad in some of the games, but we made some critical errors in that game that could have gotten us beat".
