Cordarrelle Patterson keeps getting better with each passing week. He had several big plays Sunday against Baltimore, none bigger than his 79-yard TD on a bubble screen late in the fourth to momentarily give the Vikings the lead against Baltimore.
No lead was safe late in that game and the Vikes would soon cough it back up. Actually one lead was safe, the final lead the Ravens got with four seconds left.
But despite the loss, the Vikings have plenty of positive stuff to take from what happened Sunday. The biggest positive was the performance of Patterson who has become a big-play weapon in the Vikes’ offense.
Patterson will be giving defensive coordinators nightmares for years to come. And he’s a much more easy-going, team-oriented guy than Percy Harvin, which is a plus.
