The second half kickoff went very well for the Minnesota Vikings, as Cordarrelle Patterson was able to return it to the house for a touchdown in week 11.
Cordarrelle Patterson is always a threat to score any time the ball is in his hands. His unique blend of speed, athleticism, and elusiveness has made him a unique weapon on offense or when used on kick returns.
Last week, Patterson broke the Vikings franchise record for kick return yards. That was one heck of an accomplishment during his short time with the team. Fans in Minnesota had more to celebrate in regards for Patterson, thanks to a big play in the second half.
Here is that play as shared by the official NFL Twitter account:
In standard fashion, the Cardinals kicked off to start the second half. Cordarrelle Patterson was back to receive the ball, and decided to take it out of the end zone.
With some solid blocking in front of him, Patterson was able to gain some momentum. Weaving his way through the hole, he was left with two men in front of him, the kicker and a coverage man. With one weave, the kicker ended up on the ground and the other man was left with a horrible angle where he had no hopes of catching up.
After that, Patterson turned on the afterburners and looked to find nobody behind him. He continued into the end zone, giving Minnesota a 27-17 lead early in the 3rd quarter.
Congratulations to Cordarrelle Patterson on the 104 yard kickoff return touchdown. He continues to prove he can be a major asset to the team and always be a threat whenever his number is called.
