The Minnesota Vikings made a late drive to put themselves in position to beat the Seattle Seahawks in the final minute of Sunday's Wild Card Game, but stunningly, a chip-shot field-goal attempt never came close to going through the uprights.

Minnesota got into field-goal range and then worked the clock. Trailing 10-9 with 26 seconds left, the Vikings sent out kicker Blair Walsh to try to get the team to Arizona with a 27-yard field goal. What happened next was nothing short of unbelievable.

Just like that, Minnesota's season was over. The reactions said it all:

Walsh doesn't typically miss under such circumstances, per ESPN and ESPN Stats & Info:

Seattle will play against the top-seeded Carolina Panthers next weekend for a spot in the NFC Championship Game.
