Sean Payton prematurely trolled Vikings fans with ‘SKOL’ clap
Someone forgot to tell Saints head coach Sean Payton that it’s not over until Case Keenum says it’s over.
With :25 seconds remaining and the Saints holding a 24-23 lead after Drew Brees led them downfield to set up a field goal, Payton decided to do the Vikings’ SKOL chant. Payton’s hands rhythmically clapped above his head, KFAN in Minneapolis first reported. Photos corroborated the report.

Asked why he did the Skol chant, Payton responded, “There was just a group of fans; it was good playoff fun.”
Of course moments later Keenum hit Stefon Diggs for a 61-yard winning touchdown as time expired.
