Minnesota Vikings rookie wide receiver Jordan Addison sent his team into the half with a nine-point lead over the San Francisco 49ers after his second touchdown of the night.
After the San Francisco 49ers cut their lead to three points, the Minnesota Vikings had one final chance to put more points on the board before halftime of their Week 7 matchup on Monday night.
On 3rd-and-6 from their own 40-yard line, Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins fired a pass down the field toward rookie wide receiver Jordan Addison.
At first, it looked like 49ers cornerback Charvarius Ward was going to pick up his second interception of the game. But then Addison had a different idea.
Second touchdown of the night for Minnesota Vikings WR Jordan Addison is one that needs to be seen by everyone
Instead of Ward coming up with the interception, Addison snatched the ball away from the San Francisco cornerback, and ran another 30 yards to score his second touchdown of the contest.
Just an amazing play by Addison, who could have given up on the play, but he kept fighting, and his effort was paid off by scoring his sixth touchdown of his rookie season.
Unfortunately, Minnesota kicker Greg Joseph missed the extra point after the score, so the touchdown only increased their lead over the 49ers to nine points.
Either way, it was still just a very impressive play by Addison, and Vikings fans have to be ecstatic about that touchdown and just how well the rookie wide receiver has played so far this year. It seems like he's on his way to having a very bright future in purple and gold.
