of the New Orleans-Minnesota game in which the Vikings scored a touchdown, went up 5, went bonkers, came back out, and took a knee for the extra point. Minnesota closed -5.5 and won 29-24.
“That play balanced us out,” Kornegay told USA TODAY Sports. “(That) type of last-second play has been going against us, but this time it was exactly what we needed. It was a good thing for us. It would have been better had the Vikings made the extra point.”
“We needed that extra point,” Nick Bogdanovich, director of trading at William Hill, told USA TODAY Sports. “The Vikings’ touchdown did save us when it came to those who bet the Saints on the money line.”
