About the Labor: A Minnesota Vikings Podcast — Episode 38
When it comes to people I’ve been lucky enough to interact with over the years I’ve been doing this whole Vikings Territory thing, I’m hard pressed to think of anyone with the same combination of talent and kindness as Daniel House of Vikings Corner.
So, of course, Daniel was kind enough to take a break from his own Vikings coverage (and Gophers football coverage at 247) to stop by and drop some knowledge on us in what is our latest installment of our “Three Questions” series.

We are setting a steady pace now with our “Three Questions” series and next up is none other than Christopher Gates, someone I have a great deal of respect for as the leading man over at Daily Norseman. He was kind enough to stop by and answer three questions I had waiting for him today.

Patterson becomes two-time, AP All-Pro kick returner
Minnesota Vikings wide receiver and kick return extraordinaire Cordarrelle Patterson has been named to the Associated Press (AP) NFL All-Pro Team. Patterson is the only Vikings representative on the list and his inclusion on this year’s team is his second since entering the league in 2013.
Patterson averaged an NFL-best 31.7 yards per kick return this season, finishing the year with four returns for at least 40 yards and a lone, 104-yard touchdown against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 11. His ranking among returners helped Patterson set a record, as he’s the only player in NFL history to lead the league in kickoff return average three times (2013, 2015, 2016).
