Good question DWhite. I'm not sure but I do remember watching that game that night. It was at the very end of the season and the first year the Vikings played in what was then the brand new MetroDome.
I remember having mixed feelings about the game because while I wanted us to win like always, winning also would mean we'd have to play the Vikings again the following week in the wildcard. But if we lost we would still host the wildcard but it'd be against Tampa Bay.
But when Dorsett broke off that 99 yard run I didn't care if it meant a rematch with the Vikings, I just wanted us to win that game and in my excitement I jumped up and accidentally knocked over the ficus tree in our living room. Thankfully it didn't knock any limbs off, but boy was I redfaced.
