Adam Thielen ties Sammy White for 4th on touchdown list

The Minnesota Vikings 28-24 win over the Detroit Lions was a big step for the Vikings. They figured out how to win the game when they didn’t play well enough throughout the entire game to deserve the win.

The game itself showed a lot about the Vikings and their resilience, something that we didn’t see under former head coach Mike Zimmer over the last few seasons.

Within the game, there were a few stats that showed out over the rest. One that was glossed over during the game was seeing Adam Thielen tie Sammy White for fourth on the Vikings all-time list for receiving touchdowns.

Thielen has a remarkable story that you’ve heard a thousand times. From a $500 scholarship to a $16 million/year salary, Thielen is the poster child for what hard work and determination can get you. He will likely pass Anthony Carter this season to move into third place in team history but Thielen will need a few more seasons to get up to Randy Moss in second place.
