MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Minnesota Vikings fans are feeling a bit miffed after an NFL playoff video failed to feature the Vikings – at all.
On Monday, the NFL tweeted a “#WeReady” video promoting the playoffs and fans immediately noticed a glaring omission. Actually, there were two glaring omissions.READ MORE: Suspect Arrested After Woman Found Stabbed To Death On Shakopee Sidewalk

Both the Vikings and Eagles teams did not get even a second of screen time.
One of the most liked replies to the video is a GIF showing wide receiver Stefon Diggs throwing his helmet after the “Minneapolis Miracle” playoff win against the New Orleans Saints in 2018.

“The most iconic helmet throw in NFL history probably should have been in this commercial,” one person responded.
Ironically, Saints’ quarterback Drew Brees is the first NFL athlete featured in the video.
