Twitter reactions to the Saints loss to the Vikings

Sunday’s loss was nothing like the last two playoff exits.

The New Orleans Saints season was ended Sunday in another emotional exit. Unlike in previous years however, they were simply outplayed and even with a glimmer of controversy there was no question of who played the better game leaving the Mercedes Benz Superdome.

After an opening drive Minnesota turnover it looked as if NOLA could be on their way to a decisive start. But Minnesota controlled the line of scrimmage on both sides early on.

New Orleans were silent for much of the first half offensively. Taysom Hill however was any point.

The Saints however committed a couple of crucial turnovers, and missed out on another.

After a game tying kick to take the game into overtime, the final nail in the New Orleans Saints season was put in. Several questions were raised, some showed humility, others had already come to grips with defeat and looking forward.
