MINNEAPOLIS – The Minnesota Vikings still have the best opening offense in football.
Kirk Cousins’ 6-yard touchdown pass to receiver Justin Jefferson was their seventh touchdown on first down in a game this season. That’s two more than any of the other 31 NFL teams, according to ESPN Stats & Information.
Jefferson caught two passes on the drive, four days after catching a total of three passes in the Vikings’ 40-3 loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday. He is approaching the NFL record for most yards in the first three seasons of a career, currently held by former Vikings receiver Randy Moss (4,163).
After his touchdown catch, Jefferson’s career reception total was 4,122 yards.
