Twitter Reaction: Marcus Williams is a Vikings hero

Watch as Case Keenum sends the Minnesota Vikings to the NFC Championship game by connecting with Stefon Diggs on the final play of the game.

Playoff football is never short of drama. That was the case again on Sunday when the Minnesota Vikings faced the New Orleans Saints.

Down 24-23 with seconds remaining, the Vikings needed to get into field-goal range for a shot at winning their NFC divisional-round matchup.

Then an incredible moment occurred. Vikings quarterback Case Keenum threw to receiver Stefon Diggs, but Saints safety Marcus Williams missed Diggs, who turned around and ran untouched into the endzone as time expired. Minnesota won 29-24.

That dramatic play sent social media into a frenzy, and left everyone miffed as to why Williams didn’t just try to tackle Diggs inbounds and kill off the game.

Here are the best tweets in response to the final play.
