The New Orleans Saints, after failing the past two weeks, were able to clinch their fourth-straight NFC South title by beating - and eliminating from postseason contention - the Minnesota Vikings on Christmas Day.
With the #1 seed in the NFC still a technical possibility, the Saints players, coaches, media, and fans all have their eyes set on a bigger prize than simply the division, but that didn’t stop Saints Twitter from having a field day to celebrate.
A Saints win? A division clinch? Beating and eliminating a team that has knocked you out of the playoffs two of the past three seasons? And that’s not even mentioning Alvin Kamara’s six-touchdown performance.
Here are the best social media reactions from the game:
