Stepping up to help out
It’s crazy how much attention Justin Jefferson and Dalvin Cook can draw from defenses. If someone else can step up for the Minnesota Vikings, their offense can move the chains much easier.
This week, K.J. Osborn put on a show. He caught ten passes on Saturday for a total of 157 yards and a touchdown. He tied with Justin Jefferson for most targets in the game since Kirk Cousins threw the ball his way 16 times.
