The Minnesota Vikings only scored one touchdown in week 2 of the preseason against the Seattle Seahawks, but it was an impressive Bucky Hodges TD catch!
The big plays kept rolling in during the Minnesota Vikings week 2 preseason game. Their matchup with the Seahawks in Seattle had several big plays, adding some great excitement to the August 18, 2017 game.
One such play happened in the 4th quarter of the contest when the Minnesota Vikings had their backs against the wall and were down two scores to Seattle. Quarterback Taylor Heinicke had a specific target in mind.
Here is the video of the play as shared on the official Twitter account of the Minnesota Vikings:
From the opponent’s 21 yard line, Heinicke took the snap and dropped back. The running back looked for a block, then went out as a receiver. However, the quarterback had a different target in mind.
Looking down the field, Heinicke loaded his pass and rifled a dart toward rookie tight end Bucky Hodges, who was covered and some Seahawks defenders all around him.
Fighting off the defenders, Hodges made a leap into the air, snatching the ball and brining it down in the end zone. Getting up and celebrating, he tossed the ball to the referee before celebrating with his teammates.
This scoring play from Taylor Heinicke to Bucky Hodges was the only touchdown scored by the Minnesota Vikings during week 2 of the preseason, but at least it was a fun and exciting play and it got a rookie involved who had been relatively quiet before that drive.
