Let’s Watch Teddy Bridgewater’s Gorgeous Bomb to Adam Thielen

Hey! Happy New Year! In 2015, the Vikings have neither won nor lost a game, so, basically, we’re the best ever. More than likely we are all super hung over to bring in the new year, which is just great news. Because of that, we’re going to take a little hiatus, a little holiday break, to start the year today. Instead of an article laughing at Christian Ponder, we are just going...

Vikings player's fiancee catches his first TD ball after random toss into stands (PHOTO)

After Vikings rookie wide receiver Adam Thielen caught the first NFL touchdown pass of his career, he randomly tossed the ball into the stands. A typical celebration but, little did he expect it to be caught by someone he knew. Adding to Thielen's surprise, the showcase souvenir was caught by his fiancee Caitlin Graboski. You might call this football's version of catching a wedding...

Local product Thielen shines in breakthrough game for Vikings

MINNEAPOLIS -- For a moment, it looked like Bears cornerback Kyle Fuller had jumped Adam Thielen and absconded with a prized piece of jewelry. After Thielen hauled in his first NFL touchdown reception, an aggravated Fuller popped the ball out of the Vikings wideout's hands as he sprinted across TCF Bank Stadium's east end zone. Indignant, Thielen mean-mugged Fuller, retrieved his...

Vikings deliver two crucial blocked punts for TDs against Panthers

MINNEAPOLIS -- Vikings defensive end Everson Griffen was on the sideline Sunday when reserve wide receiver Adam Thielen broke through the Carolina Panthers' offensive line with a clear path to the punter. What Thielen did next -- becoming the first Minnesota Vikings' player to do so since 1986 -- was enough to send the excitable Griffen into a frenzy. "Oh my gosh, it was unbelievable...

Adam Thielen Is a Big Bad Wolf For Halloween

For most people in America, Halloween is almost here. October 31st is a Friday this year, and for many it’s a one day event to celebrate the Day of the Dead, dress up in slutty costumes, and drink with excuses (as if they’re needed). For Vikings fans, we just call that frightful holiday “the NFL season.” But we all move on, eventually. Adam Thielen, Vikings wide receiver...

Versatile Thielen trying to stick with Vikings

MANKATO, Minn. (AP) Adam Thielen has delighted the crowd at training camp several times with difficult, diving catches. In the first preseason game for the Minnesota Vikings, the second-year wide receiver showed some elusiveness with three punt returns for a total of 52 yards. The moment that might have solidified his spot on this team, though, came during a punt at the end of the...

Minnesota Vikings: Winners and losers from training camp

With the first week of the preseason officially over, the Minnesota Vikings’ coaching staff now has a better idea of the kind of players that they are working with and what their strengths and weaknesses are. There are a few players so far that have really jumped out at me over the course of training camp: Adam Thielen, Kurt Coleman, and Teddy Bridgewater. There are also a few...
