That isn't what I saw.

Culpepper was scrambling, nobody was open, he pump faked to try to losen up coverage, nobody bit, so he lowered the shoulder and charged ahead. He was a hair's breath away from a TD (if is didn't already break the plane) while being spun by a hit. Wayne made a great strip to save the TD.

That wasn't the turning point. Vikes were still right in the game at that point. It was a pivotal play certainly, but what put the game down was when Culpepper's SECOND TD run was called back by a questionable holding call and Anderson missed the subsequent FG.
