Watching Patterson score this return touchdown was special because it was something the young receiver failed to accomplish in 2014. Patterson entered the 2014 season extremely over-hyped and finished the year as a severe disappointment, recording only one receiving touchdown on 469 yards along with zero return scores.
At least from the looks of this touchdown, it would appear that Patterson has found the groove that excited fans during his rookie year. While it’s only the preseason, it was still great to see that maybe there’s some hope for Patterson—at least as a returner for the Vikings this season.
As for fantasy football enthusiasts who got burned by Patterson last year, let’s not let one snazzy play cloud our vision when it comes to the third-year receiver.
