Well, the Vikes were their own worst enemy. Too many turnovers.
The weird thing is though, I still think they got boned on that last drive by the officials.
I just hate badly officiated games, specially when so much is at stake.
First the 3rd Saints TD clearly was not a TD, those kind of plays shouldn't be red flag reviewable, they should be ALWAYS reviewable, that's 6 points there, perhaps a moot point since almost surely the Saints would had scored anyway.
But on that overtime drive, first the 4th down conversion, was never conclusive that he crossed the 1st down marker. Then the catch that seems to touch the ground, crucial 10 yards there. Seemed like all the calls were going to go to the local team.
Yes the Vikings killed themselves with so many fumbles, but still I hate when the referees have so many bad calls.
