Today the Vikings and Seahawks had an interesting playoff game. As the clock ticked down on the Vikings last drive we all knew what to expect — one last try to get at least a single point.
Sure, there was a bogus pass interference call against us on that drive, but that’s water under the bridge now. Once they got to within field goal range we knew the drill. We were up by one and out opponent was marching down the field.
With less than half a minute on the clock the Minnesota offense wasn’t able to get a touchdown. A field goal would be the answer. From well inside the 10-yard line… it was the closest thing to a sure thing.
Then they missed.
Especially as a Cleveland fan, we know how to snatch defeat out of the jaws of victory. I feel for them. Now, sure I want Seattle to win. Winning is better than losing of course. In this case it was more a case of not losing.
