Hopefully everyone reading this blog on a regular basis is enjoying the fact that we, as followers of the NFL with primary concern for the Vikings, are still talking about football games and on-field action.
There are 24 other NFL teams, however, who aren’t playing any more games this season and instead have their primary focus on off-field activities, such as postseason awards.
But even though there are bigger things at stake, such as this weekend’s Divisional Round playoff matchup against the Dallas Cowboys, it’s still fun to point out the awards being handed out to the club and its players/coaches.
Earlier on Tuesday we pointed out that 3 Vikings were named to the Sporting News All-Pro Offensive team. Now a play from earlier in the season is up for another award.
In perhaps the signature moment of the season, QB Brett Favre heaved a 32-yard pass to the back of the endzone that found WR Greg Lewis with just 2 seconds to play in the game. Lewis found a way to catch the ball and tip-toe in the back of the endzone for the score, which gave the Vikings a dramatic and improbable come-from-behind 27-24 victory.
That particular play has been nominated for the 2009 Spring Can’t Miss Play of the Year. There are 4 other plays that have been nominated along with the Favre/Lewis play for the award, none of which were of the “can’t miss” caliber of the one that defeated the 49ers in Week 3 (we’re not biased or anything).
So, click the link in the paragraph before this one and vote for the Favre/Lewis play.
