WATCH: Cordarrelle Patterson Slices Through Cowboys Coverage With Ease For 107-Yard Touchdown

WATCH: Teddy Bridgewater Hits Mike Wallace Deep For a Big Gain Against Dallas

There has never been any doubt as to whether Minnesota Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater could throw the deep ball.

Jerry Rice: Adrian Peterson still number one pick in fantasy

We don’t know if Hall of Fame wide receiver Jerry Rice actually plays fantasy football. However, his advice to pick Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson at No. 1 is solid. Despite the fact that the league contains many pass-heavy NFL teams and that Peterson is coming off of a one-year suspension, Rice apparently has no reservations about endorsing the 30-year old running...

There isn’t a ‘LeBron James of football,’ and there never will be

Jamaal Charles and Adrian Peterson both think they’re the “LeBron James of Football.” Both are wrong, and here’s why. 1. A running back can’t be a LeBron — The last two seasons were the most pass-heavy campaigns in NFL history. The face of almost every team is the quarterback. If being the LeBron of the league means being the face of the league, there’s no way Charles...

Minnesota Vikings WR Cordarelle Patterson Owes Rookie Stefon Diggs Big For Saving His Nuts

If the Minnesota Vikings have not given wide receiver Stefon Diggs the rookie treatment yet, Cordarelle Patterson better step up to protect him if they try. Why?
