Amon-Ra St. Brown was “really shocked” that the Vikings defensive backs weren’t guarding the goal line

Article Summary:

So how surprised was St. Brown by the fact that the Vikings weren’t covering the goal line on the last play of the game?

“I was really shocked, actually,” St. Brown told PFT by phone after the 29-27 win. “The corner … I think he went like four or five yards deep into the end zone. It was perfect. I was running at him, and he actually just stayed there. He didn’t even come up. In my head I was like, ‘This is the perfect situation.’ As I broke in, there was no one in front of me. It just worked out perfect for us.”

Indeed it did. St. Brown said they’ve been running it since training camp. “It’s not too crazy of a play concept…. [W]hen we call this play at the end of the game it’s basically get one or two yards into the end zone so when I catch it, I’m in the end zone. That was the biggest thing for me on that play was it’s an ‘in’ route but making sure you catch it in the end zone because there’s no time left on the clock. If I’d caught that a yard before the end zone, game over. We have no timeouts. The biggest thing for me was just making sure I get in that end zone.”

The Vikings made that task easier by inexplicably not guarding the front of the end zone.
