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.
