He had a wide open field in front of him, and all he had to do was run for five yards and then side-step out of bounds.
The kicker would have won the game with a long field goal and the Vikings would have been headed to the Super Bowl.
But no. Instead, he throws a bad pass across his body, which was of course intercepted. The Saints won the coin toss in overtime and marched right down the field to score the game-winning field goal.
Disappointing to say the least. That could have been Brett Favre's last shot at the big one.
