Throwback Thursday: Minnesota Vikings Vs. Washington Redskins, 1987 NFC Championship

Today’s Throwback Thursday video is footage of another near-miss game, the Vikings 1987 NFC Championship match against the Washington Redskins, the game made infamous for “The Drop,” Darrin Nelson‘s alleged drop of a touchdown pass that would’ve sent the game into overtime. Unfortunately, you’ll need to skip through the Redskins 1987 season highlights to get to the game. Also, check out my post on my Twin Cities Minnesota Blog from 2007 that makes the case that the broken up pass was not Darrin Nelson’s fault. Found at Hulu.
