The Saints lose to the Vikings, and with that Saints loss, it’s Vikings-Eagles in the Conference Championship

New Orleans drops a game they had with mere seconds left, losing to the Vikings in what must be a crushing defeat.

The New Orleans Saints looked like they’d beat the Minnesota Vikings, but in case you didn’t notice, the New Orleans Saints ultimately lost on a Stefon Diggs touchdown as time expired. The New Orleans Saints had to come back on the field after already losing for an extra point, which I’m sure was very sad for them after those same New Orleans Saints had already lost the game.

With the New Orleans Saints loss, the stage is set for a defense-heavy Minnesota Vikings-Philadelphia Eagles NFC Conference Championship Game next Sunday. It should be a great game, but sadly, the New Orleans Saints will not be involved in it, due to their loss.

Of course, Falcons fans and players alike were moved to share their sympathies with their rivals, who definitely did not spend nearly a full calendar year reveling in a Falcons loss they had no involvement in. Look at these heartwarming messages.

We wish the New Orleans Saints and their fans, who will join the Atlanta Falcons in watching the rest of the playoffs due to their loss, which we mentioned above, the best as they deal with this crushing defeat.
