The Minnesota Vikings had a nice team win on Sunday in St. Louis, but some players stood out more than others, and I want to know which Vikings player impressed you the most. Here are your candidates for our Week One “Player of the Game” award. Cast your vote at the bottom.
CORDARRELLE PATTERSON: “Flash” made a huge impact as the game’s leading rusher (3 carries, 102 yards, 1 TD) and caught three of his five targets in the passing came (3 catches for 26 yards). He also averaged 24 yards on his two kick return attempts. His 67 yard touchdown run in the third quarter was pretty much when the Rams began to look defeated and withdrawn.
GREG JENNINGS: Jennings led the Vikings pass catchers in the statistical categories of targets (7), catches (6), and yards (58). He scored the first Vikings touchdown of 2014 on an eight yard pass from Matt Cassel.
