On Sunday night the Minnesota Vikings pulled off a miraculous comeback over the New Orleans Saints in the final seconds that will not soon be forgotten.

The victory came on the last play of the game, with Vikings quarterback Case Keenum connecting with Stefon Diggs, who was able to scamper into the end zone thanks to a bit of blown coverage on the part of the Saints defense. It was the first walk-off touchdown in regulation in NFL postseason history.

In Minnesota and Louisiana, newspapers worked fast to make sure that local fans could read about the astounding finish, resulting in plenty of front pages that will be likely be framed in Minneapolis and quickly disposed of in greater New Orleans.

Take a look below at how various papers memorialized the night.
