It was one of the greatest plays in NFL history. FNL fans all over the U.S. watched as Vikings wide receiver Stefon Diggs brought it home for the Vikings in the final ten seconds of the game.

Diggs’ game-winning 61-yard touchdown from Case Keenum to beat the Saints, 29-24. At U.S. Bank Stadium, Diggs made one of the best plays you’ll ever see. That touchdown also means Diggs is leading his team to the NFC Championship game.

But Diggs isn't taking the credit for himself. In an interview with CCN, he could have been boastful; after all, he probably deserved it. Instead, he gave all of the credit to his Heavenly Father.

“I ran a route, my qb [quarterback] gave me a great throw. God took care of the rest; you watch the play and a guy ran into another guy,” Diggs told ESPN. “ I give all the glory to God. I give Him the praise on this great Sunday.

"I still don’t know what happened. All I can say is give it to God. Without Him nothing is possible, and I wouldn't be here."

"God put me in a position, and I just try to take advantage of my opportunities," added Diggs before breaking into tears.

Diggs hasn't been shy about his faith on Twitter. After he made the incredible touchdown, he tweeted his refrain: "Give all glory to God."

He's also known to tweet out verses of the Bible or inspiring quotes that remind people to turn to God.

Diggs finished his third season with 848 receiving yards and eight touchdowns. This one in the playoffs was the biggest touchdown of his career. 

What an inspiring young man! Best of luck to him and his team in the NFC Championship game. In other news, fellow Vikings player Keenum also gave glory to God. See his testimony
