Jefferson had already topped 100 yards receiving on the day for the Vikings; however, this explosive play has now made it a day to remember for the rookie.
The Vikings had a notable void to fill in their receiving corps following the departure of Stefon Diggs this offseason. As a result, they used the No. 22 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft to have Jefferson potentially serve as a complementary option to wide receiver Adam Thielen in the passing game for Cousins.
Jefferson struggled to find his footing with a mere five receptions for 70 yards through the first two games. Fortunately, but is safe to say that he is finding his footing with the Vikings.
