VIKINGS ANNOUNCER GOES CRAZY DURING OT WIN

Written by Tony Ghaul

Last Sunday’s Vikings vs Bills game was absolutely nuts. From Vikings WR Justin Jefferson making the most insane catch to the Buffalo Bills blowing a 27-10 lead and Bills QB Josh Allen’s goal-line fumble, the game provided everything you could ask for.

The overtime thriller sent everyone watching on one heck of an emotional ride. Especially Vikings radio play-by-play announcer Paul Allen.

Allen’s excitement built as the Vikings marched down the field only to be stopped by a great Bills goal line stand. “You lucky suckers,” Allen said when the Bills kept Kirk Cousins from driving into the end zone on 4th and 1.

Allen come back to life after the Bills bungled a snap in their own end zone, giving the Vikings a go-ahead touchdown. Then right back down when Bills kicker Tyler Bass booted the tying field goal.

Allen ran through the full gamut of emotions, from despair when it looked like the Vikings were going to lose in regulation, to jubilation when they took the lead on a fumbled snap, to pure joy when Patrick Peterson sealed the victory in overtime.
