Karma? Vikings fans erupt in joy as Saints lose NFC Championship Game in overtime to Rams

Vikings fans love celebrating the Saints' heartbreak.

The next best thing to winning a Super Bowl might be watching the New Orleans Saints be victimized by a bad call and then lose the NFC Championship Game in overtime. 

Sound familiar? It's exactly what happened to the Vikings against the Saints in the 2009 NFC title game, when BountyGate was born and the Saints walked into the Super Bowl on a game-winning field goal by Garrett Hartley. 

This time around, the Saints were hit by a non-call with less than 90 seconds to play that would've sealed a victory and send them to Super Bowl 53, but instead the flags didn't fly and the Rams broke their hearts with a 57-yard field goal to win it in overtime. 

How sweet it is, Vikings fans .... especially since the Vikings put a miracle on them to end their season last year.
