In one of the most entertaining games in the history of Thursday Night Football, Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen stepped up with the latest big play.

Late in the third quarter with the Vikings down by 11 points, Thielen broke free over the middle then slipped out of a tackle and took it in for the touchdown.

Thielen’s 45-yard touchdown catch not only helped pull the game within three. It also marked the star receiver’s third consecutive game with 100-plus receiving yards.

The arrival of Kirk Cousins has turned this into one of the best offenses in the NFL, which means big numbers are going to be a weekly tradition for Thielen and Stefon Diggs.
