Kirk Cousins just went into the Superdome and made the biggest play of his career, in overtime.

Yes.

It will be the Minnesota Vikings, and not the New Orleans Saints, moving on to the Divisional Round of the NFC playoffs.

After allowing the Saints to tie up the game late in the fourth, the Vikings were guided down the field by Cousins and stunned the home crowd with walk-off touchdown to Kyle Rudolph.

Cousins, who has been criticized throughout his entire career--including during his tenure in the nation's capital--for not being able to deliver when the team needs him most, booked the Vikings a trip to San Francisco for a date with Jimmy Garappolo and the San Francisco 49ers. 

After leaving the field and rejoining his team in the locker room, Cousins finished his speech the only way he knows how.
