Not only is it one of the greatest moments in Minnesota sports history, but the Minneapolis Miracle is a godsend for internet jokesters.

In the wake of Stefon Diggs' touchdown that shocked the world, social media was flooded with memes and gifs extolling the Vikings and mocking the Saints.

We're not ones to have schadenfreude when it comes to losing football games – especially not given the Vikings' past – but since it's the Saints we're happy to make the exception.
