Rapid Reaction: Saints 31, Vikings 28

NEW ORLEANS -- Brace yourself because you’re about to see words that never have been written before.

The New Orleans Saints are going to the Super Bowl. Seriously.

In one of the most entertaining postseason games in history, the Saints defeated the Minnesota Vikings in overtime in the NFC Championship Game. Garrett Hartley made a 40-yard field goal to send the Saints to the Super Bowl for the first time in franchise history.

They’ll face the Indianapolis Colts in Miami.

To get there, they had to survive the legend of Brett Favre, who threw a costly interception just before the end of regulation.

I’m heading down to the locker room right now and will be back with more after the post-game interviews.
