5. Minnesota has scored a touchdown in 55 straight games
This one is rather unique as only three teams currently have longer active streaks. The New England Patriots have scored a touchdown in 71 consecutive games, the Los Angeles Chargers in 70, and the Houston Texans with at least one touchdown in 63 straight contests.
Ironically, Minnesota’s last game without a touchdown was the aforementioned and hideous showdown with the Colts in 2016. You know, the very reason that Mike Zimmer has yet to beat Indianapolis.
Therefore, the Vikings have built and maintained this nifty streak for over four seasons, and this includes playoff games. It’s also the third-longest such streak in Vikings history. The most lengthy span of games in which the team scored one touchdown or more in every single game took place from 1995 to 2001. This was a period of seven seasons that Minnesota played hot-potato at the quarterback position, so this streak is especially applaudable. All told, the streak lasted 96 games.
The predominant playmakers of this era that had the most to do with keeping the streak alive were none other than Cris Carter and Robert Smith — and Randy Moss for the last half. These men were the common denominators of the 96-game streak.
