Case Keenum’s Minnesota Miracle wins ESPY Award

The miracle finish in the Divisional playoff win against the New Orleans Saints ran away with the Best Moment Award.

There are few plays in recent playoff memory as exciting as the Case Keenum to Stefon Diggs last minute, game-winning touchdown. So it’s no surprise that the play took home an award for the “Best Moment” at ESPN’s yearly ESPY Awards.

I remember being at a restaurant with the game on the TV and thinking (along with most of America) the New Orleans Saints had the game in the bag. Next thing I know, I look up and Stefon Diggs is running down the field for the winning score.

This was probably one of the more exciting playoff moments since Tim Tebow and Demaryius Thomas’ walk-off touchdown in the 2011 Wild Card round.

Congratulations to Keenum and the rest of the Minnesota Vikings players.

A few weeks ago, Case Keenum recalled that play in an interview and broke down what was going through his head during this amazing moment.
