Current Broncos quarterback Case Keenum explains his miraculous NFC Divisional Round win against the New Orleans Saints to Broncos fans.
For the second straight season, the Denver Broncos missed the playoffs. They did get to see their future quarterback, Case Keenum, in action. He would perform one of the biggest miracles the NFL has ever seen.
By now, we have all seen the “Minnesota Miracle.” It was a 61-yard touchdown pass from Keenum to Stefon Diggs. From first glance, all thought Diggs would be tackled short of the sideline. However, Saints safety Marcus Williams completely whiffs on the tackle. Taking out his own teammate in the process, Diggs had no one in front of him provided he stayed on his feet. He was able to and the play sent the Minnesota Vikings to the NFC Championship Game.
In case you have been living under a rock and did not see the play, the video of the play is below.
Case Keenum met with some Broncos fans on Wednesday night. During that time, he was able to discuss the play that was run during the Minnesota Miracle. Gun Buffalo Right Key Left Seven Heaven was the call.
Keenum details exactly what happened during the play and afterwards. He explains it as the third best moment of his life behind finding Christ and marrying his wife.
Case Keenum had quite the season with the Minnesota Vikings. He led a team not expect to do a whole lot. The leadership propelled them just one game short of a Super Bowl appearance in their home town.
Hopefully, he can bring that competitive spirit to the Denver Broncos in 2018. By the way things looked during OTA’s and minicamp, it is looking like a promising season in Denver.
