The Minnesota Vikings beat the New Orleans Saints 29-24 this evening at U.S. Bank Stadium, advancing to the NFC Championship game next Sunday in Philadelphia -- taking another step closer to becoming the first team to play in a Super Bowl at their home stadium.

 

The Vikings scored on an improbable 61 yard pass from Kennum to Diggs as time expired for the win.

The Vikings will face the Eagles next Sunday at 5:40 PM CT in the NFC Championship game between the top two teams in the conference playing for the right to advance to Super Bowl 52 at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.
