The Vikings Celebrate A Shocking Wild Card Win At New Orleans | Video

Kirk Cousins Celebrates The Biggest Win Of His NFL CareerIn what was easily the most unexpected outcome of Wild Card Weekend, the Minnesota Vikings shocked the New Orleans Saints, 26-20, in an overtime thriller at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in downtown New Orleans.

The games two signature storylines first involved the stellar performance of the often-maligned Kirk Cousins, who threw for 242 yards and 1 TD. The second big talking point centered around Cousins’ lone TD throw, when veteran TE Kyle Rudolph caught the overtime game-winner, on a play in which some observers believed the 6-6 pass receiver should have been called for offensive pass interference.

The Vikings will now head to Santa Clara, California, for a Saturday afternoon matchup with the top seeded 49ers.

Here is a look at Minnesota’s postgame locker-room celebration, which included animated speeches from head coach Mike Zimmer and the aforementioned Cousins. The clip concludes with Rudolph leading his teammates in a cheer.
