Adam Thielen Ties NFL Record That Has Stood Since 1961
The Minnesota Vikings took down the New York Jets 37-17, and in the process, Adam Thielen started to re-write the NFL's record books.
In the fourth quarter, Thielen caught a pass from quarterback Kirk Cousins to get him over the 100-yard mark in the game, which made it seven straight games with at least 100 yards receiving to start the season.
Only one other player has achieved that feat, and it was Charley Hennigan of the Houston Oilers back in 1961. Thielen is also the first player to start the season with 7-straight games with 100-yards receiving in the Super Bowl era.
Once a little-known receiver, Thielen as turned into a star, making big play after big play for the Vikings. He will look to continue the streak and break Hennigan's record against the New Orleans Saints next Sunday Night at U.S Bank Stadium.
We know the Saints and the Vikings don't forget the last time the Saints came into town, thanks to the Minnesota Vikings on YouTube.
We will see if Thielen can do it again next week. If he can keep it up, he may just see his name in MVP conversation.
