Stat No. 4

"Adam Thielen has scored a touchdown in 38 percent of all games since becoming a starter."

This metric is intriguing because it displays the thumbprint the player has on each game. For instance, if a player was stacking multiple touchdowns into single games and then incurring droughts of touchdowns in games thereafter, the player’s consistency could be called into question. Thielen is not like that.

Why? Because the aforementioned 38 percent figure has prestigious company. Stefon Diggs has scored a touchdown in 34 percent of his games and Percy Harvin scored a touchdown in 33 percent of his games with the Vikings.

The only notable top-tier Minnesota wide receivers to score more consistently and frequently are the easily-identifiable Randy Moss (59 percent) and Cris Carter (44 percent).

Comprehensively, the Vikings are 16-6-1 (.717) when Thielen scores. In the span of a 16-game season, this percentage equates to nearly a 12-4 win-loss record.
