Cordarrelle Patterson With First Career TD Catch (Video)


Cordarrelle Patterson has wowed fans of the Minnesota Vikings (and fans of the NFL in general) with his electric kick return skills this season.

Patterson, a first round draft pick of the Vikings, has returned two kickoffs for a touchdown so far this year.

Despite Patterson’s incredible skills with the ball in his hands, the Vikings have been a little hesitant to get him heavily involved in the offense.

Patterson has been considered “raw” due to his lack of experience playing at a major level (he played at Tennessee for only one season).

The rookie from Rock Hill, SC had only 16 catches for 146 yards going into the Vikings game against the Washington Redskins on Thursday night.

Midway through the second quarter, Patterson added his first career TD reception to his resume, catching a two-yard pass from Christian Ponder in the end zone.

The Vikings need to continue to find ways to feed Patterson the ball.

You’d be hard pressed to find someone more electric with the ball in their hands.
