For the first time in the eighty-six year history of the National Football League, a team had an interception return for a touchdown, a kick return for a touchdown and a punt return for a touchdown in the same game…and it was the Vikings who did it. Not only that, but they did it on the road, against the New York Giants–the Vikings’ Lex Luther for the last four years–and won the game 24-21 on a last-second Paul Edinger field goal. And I know I wrote the Vikings’ season off after the debacle in Carolina…but since then they’ve won two in a row, they’ve got a few winnable games coming up (vs. Cleveland, at Detroit) and their defense is finally showing signs of life. Am I back on board? Not quite–but this might change again next week.
Oh So Special
