The Vikings came out victorious following a 75-yard game-winning drive in overtime led by quarterback Kirk Cousins.
Social media was on fire following Minnesota's first-ever overtime win in franchise playoff history.
Lets view some of the top tweets from the Vikings 26-20 win over New Orleans.
Spotted amidst #Vikings celebration: Harrison Smith, telling everyone to calm down. Vets remember what happened after last emotional playoff win over #Saints. Adam Thielen told me it’s already been mentioned in locker room: prep for #49ers begins on plane ride home.— Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) January 5, 2020

At Fellowship last night at the team hotel Kirk’s dad Don, a pastor for many decades, coyly and eloquently shared a David v. Goliath theme. I can’t stop thinking about last night and, of course, today. What euphoria. VIKINGS FANS WE R TWO WINS FROM A SUPER BOWL BERTH! #GoGetIt— Paul Allen (@PAOnTheMic) January 5, 2020

"We were trying to find a way to get [Everson Griffen & Danielle Hunter] on their guards. It changed Brees' demeanor in the course of the game. He likes to step up but seeing 97 & 99 inside made him stay high & that helped us."
All the credit in the world to the Vikings for what they accomplished today. I couldn’t have been more wrong about that game. I thought New Orleans would blow the doors off of them.— nick wright (@getnickwright) January 5, 2020
And Cousins’ throw in OT was everything that everyone is saying it was: Just sensational.
This was the 3rd time a Vikings-Saints playoff game was decided on the final play, and all 3 of those games have come in their previous 3 meetings (2019, 2017 & 2009).— ESPN Stats & Info (@ESPNStatsInfo) January 5, 2020
