Definition of The Minneapolis Miracle

What was the "Minneapolis Miracle"? What is the definition of the term "The Minneapolis Miracle"?

The King explains the meaning of the term Minneapolis Miracle, when it comes to American football.  Dictionary entry.The "Minneapolis Miracle" took place on January 14th, 2018, in a NFC divisional playoff game between the New Orleans Saints and Minnesota Vikings.

The Vikings started the game strong, building a 17-0 lead before the Saints came storming back to take a 24-23 lead.

There were just 10 seconds left in the game, and the Vikings were in their own end with no timeouts left.

All the Saints had to do was stop the Vikings once and the game would have been over.

This is what happened next:

Diggs made a very nice catch, though Saints' safety made an enormous blunder by attempting a big hit on Diggs instead of simply wrapping up the wide receiver, which would have ended the game.

As a result of the play, the NFL instituted a new rule that eliminated the need for an extra point attempt if the game was over and the extra point or two-point attempt wouldn't impact the outcome of the game. Vikings' team and staff members rushed the field after Diggs scored his TD, and there was a great deal of confusion as the extra point still had to be kicked.

The Vikings would go on to lose the NFC Championship game to the Eagles, though the "Minneapolis Miracle" will live on forever.
