Top 10 Tweets from Vikings Historic Comeback Win Over Colts

MINNEAPOLIS – It's safe to say Vikings fans' emotions ran the gamut Saturday.

From being down 33-nothing at halftime to a walk-off win in the overtime, Minnesota's division-clinching win made history.

Fans took to social media throughout the afternoon to complain, vent, celebrate and more – and we've got the best ones here for you.

1. That aged poorly

David Lombardi, who covers the 49ers for The Athletic, felt pretty confident in the Vikings loss at halftime. But @paritosh_bhide found the perfect GIF to come back with.

2. Split decision

Two Minnesota State Representatives, Dan Wolgamott and Zack Stephenson, attended Saturday's game. One of them decided to leave at halftime, and it's safe to say he probably regretted his decision. Whoops.

3. No meteor but a Minnesota win

Gregg Swedberg didn't quite share "Voice of the Vikings" Paul Allen's optimism when the Vikings fell behind 33-0.

Lucky for all of us, the comeback happened instead of the continental meteor strike.

4. Game # 1,000

We know Saturday's win wasn't a postseason victory, but Allen compared the atmosphere to that following the Minneapolis Miracle.

It's not fair to compare, but both are pretty special.

5. Reusse speaks the truth

Longtime Minnesota sports columnist Patrick Reusse told it like it was after Minnesota notched the biggest comeback effort in NFL history.

The Vikings are not short on exciting wins this season.

6. That's a throwback

Patrick Peterson's still got it, there's no doubt.

But the veteran cornerback did show his age by referencing a 14-year-old Buffalo Wild Wings commercial.

7. Kirk got his Gatorade

Don't ever count out a well-hydrated Captain Kirk, who threw for a career-high 460 yards.

8. Don't sleep on the Vikings

Michelle really didn't know what had hit her after waking up from a snooze.

9. Early predictions

UK Vikings fan Jess predicted prior to the season that K.J. Osborn would have a big impact.

10. Day brightener

Earlier this week, Vikings fan Brian Marette's 9-year-old son suffered significant injuries at the hands of school bullies.

Brian had already planned to bring Dylan to his first Vikings game, and the organization upped the experience with Adam Thielen jerseys, sideline passes and a meet-and-greet with Thielen and Christian Darrisaw before the game.

Not to mention, a pretty epic win. Thanks for hanging with us, Dylan. The Vikings have your back!

Bonus: Pawsome SKOL Chant

I mean, did you really think I wasn't going to include my own dog? I'm power hungry, OK?

(Thanks to Vikings Senior Editor Craig Peters for challenging us on this trick idea and to my roommate Bethany for executing the training months ago.)
