Unlike pretty much the rest of his Minnesota Vikings team, rookie wide receiver Justin Jefferson is having himself a heck of a season.
One of the top NFL Rookie of the Year candidates, Jefferson entered Sunday’s Week 15 NFL action against the Chicago Bears having caught 65 passes for 1,067 yards and seven touchdowns in 13 games. He’s pretty much put up the best rookie season for a Vikings receiver since Randy Moss back in 1998.
With his Vikings battling for their playoff lives at 6-7 on Sunday, they continued to struggle against the Chicago Bears. That included embattled quarterback Kirk Cousins missing an open Justin Jefferson in the end zone by holding on to the ball too long. The LSU product was none too happy.

This is a kid-friendly website, so we’re not going to lay out exactly what Justin Jefferson said to his quarterback. We will say it included a certain four-letter word. Obviously, he was not happy.
The Vikings were ultimately held to a field goal on that drive to end the second quarter. They also found themselves down double digits in the fourth quarter.
Minnesota entered Sunday’s action at 6-7 on the season and one game behind the Arizona Cardinals for the final playoff spot in the NFC. The team is also tied with Chicago, but ahead in the standings due to holding the tiebreaker heading into this game. Obviously, a loss would change things dramatically.
As for the Justin Jefferson incident, it is similar to what we saw from Stefon Diggs and Kirk Cousins a season ago. Diggs was ultimately traded to the Buffalo Bills during the spring.
