Vikings WR Stefon Diggs makes amazing game-winning TD catch, gives God the glory

The Minneapolis Miracle saw the entire world go crazy when Vikings QB Case Keenum threw a 61-yard touchdown pass to Stefon Diggs to give Minnesota an amazing last-second win and a trip to the NFC championship game next Sunday in Philadelphia against the Eagles.

Diggs caught the winning touchdown and was mobbed by teammates. After the game, he was interviewed by ESPN’s Josina Anderson in a moment where Stefon was shocked and overcome with emotion.

“I ran a route, my QB gave me a great throw, God took care of the rest,” Diggs told Anderson. “I give all the glory to God. I give Him the praise on this great Sunday. I still don’t know what just happened. I really don’t. All I can say is I give it to God because without Him, nothing is impossible and I wouldn’t be here.”

Diggs would break down in tears and walk away after finishing the 75-second interview with Anderson.

After the game, he tweeted another reminder of who he is praising after the incredible win.

The Vikings play Philadelphia in the NFC championship game Sunday night. If Minnesota wins, it’ll be the first team to ever play a Super Bowl in its home stadium.
