From the sidelines, just the stadium audio. Listen to the fans go from "not this shit again", to "at least he got the ball off", to "hey, it's going to someone", to "he caught it, maybe we have 1 second for a super long sketchy field goal attempt", to "HOLY SHIT WE'RE WINNING THIS RIGHT NOW!!!"

How the hell did this happen? Why was there not an extra defender deep? To start, the Saints put 4 defensive lineman in instead of the typical 3 in this situation. Possibly worried about Case's ability to buy extra time. They also ran a "fence" defensive play where the defenders primarily protect the sidelines so the Vikings can't catch a ball and run out of bounds. This requires 3 defenders on each sideline and 1 in the middle of the field to prevent a fluke play up the middle. Because of the extra defensive linemen, there was one less defender deep.
