Time Capsule: Jan. 24, 2010 -- New Orleans 31, Vikings 28 (OT)

After that 1999 NFC title game loss to Atlanta, this one ranks No. 2 in total unbearable Vikings pain (not counting Super Bowl losses).

Brett Favre, perhaps a few yards away from getting the Vikings into field goal range for a game-winning field goal, tosses a fourth-quarter interception. The bounty-hunting Saints would win it in OT, 31-28.

Not as bad as the 15-1 take-a-knee Falcons debacle, but still one we'll never forget...
