Cordarrelle Patterson Does Cordarrelle Patterson Things

Michael Thomas

Yes, I had originally done this story as a FanShot, but for some reason the GIF stopped animating, so I'm going this route with it instead.

The biggest highlight of this game from the offensive side of the ball was the big 67-yard touchdown run by receiver Cordarrelle Patterson near the end of the third quarter. I said in the recap that accompanied the Fourth Quarter Open Thread that I really couldn't do it justice. And now, I don't have to, because we have the visual form of it right here.


This run by Patterson put him into the Vikings' record book for a couple of things.

-He became the first Vikings receiver to run for 100 yards in a game (he had 102)
-He tied Percy Harvin with four rushing touchdowns from the wide receiver position
-He's only the second non-Adrian Peterson member of the Vikings to rush for 100 yards in a game that AD played in (joining Toby Gerhart)

All in all, a pretty good day at the office for Patterson. Honestly, there isn't anybody in the NFL that's better than he is in the open field. And I don't think we ever have to worry about him acting like a gigantic cry baby, milking injuries and throwing weights at coaches, which is a nice bonus.
