Randy Moss gets inducted into Minnesota Vikings Ring of Honor

Randy Moss gets inducted into Minnesota Vikings Ring of Honor

"One of the greatest players in Vikings history", Zygi called Moss. A 32-yard rush from scrimmage in the fourth quarter set up a touchdown three plays later by Kyle Rudolph.

On a night that the Minnesota Vikings inducted Randy Moss into their Ring of Honor, Stefon Diggs put together a performance that would've made the All-Pro wideout proud.

To make matters even better, Diggs wasn't even done there in the first half, as he would pull in another score right before halftime hit.

Diggs and Adam Thielen, who recorded his fourth game of 100 yards receiving, allowed Minnesota to open up its offense by taking consistent deep shots down the field.

Quarterback Sam Bradford outdueled Drew Brees' usual prolific passing attack by switching up his M.O. entirely. It must have been the shoes because Diggs completely took over the first 30-plus minutes of the Vikings' game against the Saints.

In his return to Minnesota to face the team he played with for 10 seasons, Adrian Peterson didn't achieve his ultimate goal of "walking away with a W". He's been a big part of CenturyLink's local television campaign - "They have some more confidence in me now", Diggs said of his expanding acting roles in the commercials. "I think that obviously could fall on me, I need to know who's out there, personnel, so I'll take that responsibility". His six carries matched a career low and his 18 yards were the third-fewest of his career.

He went on to play eight of his 14 National Football League seasons with the Vikings, finishing behind only Cris Carter on the franchise's all-time record list in receiving yards (9,316), touchdowns (92), and receptions (587). I thought the tempo was great tonight.
