The New Orleans Saints needed star wide receiver Michael Thomas to show up on Sunday in the NFC Wild Card Game against the Minnesota Vikings following the two teams’ “Minneapolis Miracle” game from January of 2018.

Michael Thomas, the 26-year-old three-time Pro-Bowler, made a memorable catch at the beginning of the second quarter, toe-tapping along the sidelines to haul in a 15-yard reception (via NFL).

Thomas led the league in receptions in 2019, bringing in a new record of 149 catches, besting former Indianapolis Colts receiver Marvin Harrison for the single-season record. Thomas also led the NFL in receiving yards, totaling over 1,700 in the air while being thrown to by Drew Brees and mid-season sub Teddy Bridgewater.

Thomas’ sideline catch wasn’t enough on that drive by the Saints, by the home team later scored a touchdown on an Alvin Kamara goal line rush to take the lead in the first half against the Vikings.
