MINNEAPOLIS (KMSP) - While the Vikings and Green Bay Packers faced off on Sunday, a squirrel was enjoying his 15 minutes of fame after making a run for it during the first quarter. Social media went crazy when the four-legged friend received air time on the field.
"Yep -- that's a squirrel on the loose running on the field in Minnesota," the NFL tweeted.
