Just when you thought the game-winning touchdown to send the Vikings to the NFC Championship game couldn’t get any sweeter for Minnesota fans, you have this.
According to a report from someone inside U.S. Bank Stadium, Saints head coach Sean Payton was mocking Vikings fans behind his bench with their ‘Skol chant’ prior to the unthinkable final play.
According to @nacholeber on KFAN, apparently Sean Payton was mocking fans behind the Saints’ bench with the Skol chant prior to the final play.
You know, just in case you thought you couldn’t squeeze any more enjoyment out of what happened last night.

It happened. I was in the 10th row right behind him. He turned around, looked at us, and did a mocking Skol Chant with 0:25 left after the field goal. Then he got what he deserved.
