The New Orleans Saints suffered a heartbreaking, last-second loss to the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday night to abruptly end their impressive 2017-18 campaign.
It was a hard loss to handle after Stefon Diggs broke free following a whiffed tackle from Saints defensive back Marcus Williams and one local paper had the perfect headline to sum up the game.
The Times-Picayune headline was simple, but there was no better way to show how the people of New Orleans are feeling.

The Saints must now regroup as they prepare for next season. Minnesota, meanwhile, has a date set with the Philadelphia Eagles next weekend at Lincoln Financial Field.
If the Vikings can come away with another big win, they will return home to U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis where they will get to play Super Bowl 52 on their home field.
Kickoff between the Vikings and Eagles is set for 6:40 p.m. ET. The winner will play either the New England Patriots or Jacksonville Jaguars.
