Oh for sure, there's luck involved in those situations and plenty of other plays as well. Just like Snead just overthrowing Kamara for a TD/big gain. But as you said, those are uncommon plays but they do happen enough.

 

I would say the only 2 freak plays in that game were the tip and the walk off TD. The ability/luck to have his hand right in the ball's flightpath while having his back turned to Brees was pretty crazy and game changing seeing as the Saints were in the redzone. In a game between 2 great teams that I would say are fairly even, that's all it takes to get the win. Which is why I think games like this one really magnifies how big the little things become in a highly contested matchup. It's a cliche, but football is really a game of inches at times. If that makes sense.

Thomas Moorestead (Saints Punter) is becoming a Vikings fan favorite. He played through that game with some torn rib cartilage and chose to came back onto the field after that crazy final play... and lined up as a DT on the XP attempt. 

Viking fans have donated $80k so far to his charity.. Moorestead has turned around and said he will donate all of that money to a hospital in Minnesota which helps kids be kids as they go through various treatments and medical procedures. He also promised to fly up to Minnesota during the SB to personally deliver the check if it reaches $100k.

So very cool. Great story and stuff the NFL needs to focus on.

Can you imagine trying to punt a football, go through the actual correct punting motion with a broken rib (full extension of ball in your hand, drop at lowest point, kick low to the ground, kick through the ball to head height?

Jesus Christ what a warrior.

Was looking at him myself after rewatching that play a billion times. All the respect in the world for Morstead.
