The Vikings miracle game-winning touchdown to beat the Saints was one of the most dramatic moments in playoff history, but for degenerate gamblers it was a distant second to the commotion over the meaningless extra-point that would decide if the Vikings would cover the -5.5 point point spread.
After clearing the field to comply with the NFL rule requiring teams to go through with the point-after, the Vikings opted for a kneel-down which cemented the 29-24 final score, and gave the win to those holding Saints tickets.
A room full of people who care more about the cover than an all-time historic play is our kind of room.
It’s not hard to figure out who has the winning tickets when you watch here:
