Highlight videos are fun, aren’t they?

Since the last highlight video we did was pretty well-received. . .and since it’s the part of the offseason that’s too early to go whole hog into the draft. . .we’ve got another one that you’ll probably enjoy.

The artist known as “funkydunkleman” has put together a video featuring the first Minnesota Vikings’ touchdown of every player on the current roster that has one. It’s a little less than six minutes long, but there are still a lot of fun plays to remember as it features both offensive and defensive players.

Check out the video, and at its conclusion we’ll document each individual play by year.
