2 minute warning and it all comes down to the Jags defense. Let's see if they can hold on one more time.

I'd be happy for Vikings fans if that happened! You guys deserve a nice year. And I'd root for any NFC team over the Steelers.

 

To be frank it's a little hard to root for the Pats sometimes, but it's also impossible not to respect all that they've accomplished. However awful some of those people may be, they're good at this game, for whatever that is worth.

I hope the time is now for the Vikings. I've waited 57 yrs for a Super Bowl win. Don't have another 57 to wait. 

 

SKOL VIKINGS !!!!

Skol or "skal" comes from the Dutch/Swedes/Norwegians and basically means cup of beer and used as a "cheers".

 

 

I might have passed away during the game last night.

To piggy-back off what MH said, it's also believed to be derived from the tradition Scandinavians (Vikings) had of drinking from the decapitated skulls (skolls) of their latest opponent.

Got a question.

 

At the end of this play, the WR takes his helmet off and throws it.  The ref throws a flag.

 

What the hell does the ref think he's throwing the flag for?  The game is over.  Is this guy going to be punished in the next game?  Is there a league rule against this type of celebration...after the game is over?

^^^^ @BigRedBuster  We were laughing about that after we all calmed down last night. My guess is it would of been enforced on the kickoff, but the game was over so it was a meaningless flag. 

 

Good on the ref though, for maintaining the law amidst chaos :facepalm:

I never saw the kick, but I believe it would have been on the extra point that the vikings chose to just kneel for.

 

Glad Diggs didnt drill someone with the helmet... but ya, that penalty doesnt carryover or anything.

There was a play for an extra point after this?  The report I saw said time ran out during this play.

They still have o play it out. It happened like 10 minutes after the game had ended and the saints just ran out a bunch of random dudes and the vikings took a knee.

Must be an NFL rule.  I'm almost positive that I've watched college and HS games where it was won on the last play with time running out and they didn't make them line up for the extra point.

I believe it is sort of a gambling driven thing... but the NFL wont admit to that.

I'm 90% sure this injury is 100% faked. Because this is the kind of stuff the Patriots do.

 

I was gonna say something about how stupid his hat looks. I read a response to one of those tweets from a Husker fan:

"More importantly, what species of small mammal is he housing in his beanie?"

Word is he cut a finger on a teammate's helmet and has stitches.  Probably not going to affect him much.

Lol, it was Rex Burkhead! Even though he joined the Patriots, Rex still finds ways to endear himself to the world.
