Down 21-6, the Minnesota Vikings were in desperation mode at Lambeau Field Saturday. Adam Thielen delivered in a huge way with a 71-yard touchdown catch against the Green Bay Packers to breathe new life into his suffocating team.

Getting a bit of assistance from the Packers, as defenders collided on the play, Thielen was all alone as he hauled in this deep pass from Sam Bradford.

Seventy-one yards later, Thielen was all alone in the end zone.

This touchdown cut the lead to one score, as Green Bay led 21-13 after Kai Forbath drilled the extra point through the uprights.
