High No. 3

Three TDs to three different players

This Vikings’ group of pass-catchers can no longer be considered a one-trick pony operation spearheaded by Adam Thielen. Kirk Cousins indeed trusts Thielen the most out of all of his pass-catchers, but the Titans game proved that Minnesota has a hodgepodge of astute playmakers.

It’s more likely that Cousins’ tunnel vision versus the Colts was a one-week outlier than it is that the quarterback is incapable of getting other pass-catchers involved. Heck, it only took one week to fix the situation and prove otherwise.

Justin Jefferson dynamically arrived on the NFL scene in Week 3, Thielen notched a few receptions and a touchdown, and Cousins found old faithful, Kyle Rudolph, for a top-10 catch of the year. That’s not a Vikings top ten — that’s an NFL top-ten. It was that marvelous.
