It was a wild day for Minnesota Vikings tight end Antworten

Kyle Rudolph. He not only had himself a career-high 137 receiving yards Dan Bailey Jersey , but also reeled in two touchdowns to help the Vikings secure a 27-9 win over the Detroit Lions. Minnesota could have went into halftime down 9-7 if it wasn’t for a tremendous throw by Kirk Cousins in a full-out Hail Marry to find Rudolph jumping well over his defenders to grab the ball in the end zone to help lift Minnesota 14-9 at the half. Rudolph joins some impressive company after Sunday’s performance. That was his third game with over 100+ receiving yards in his career. The only other tight end to achieve that was Joe Senser with four. He had three games that were over 100 receiving yards in 1981 and one during the ‘82 season. The last time Rudolph had himself a 100+ yard game was when Minnesota played Chicago two years ago on New Years Day. He had 11 catches for 117 yards and one touchdown in a 38-10 win. Rudolphs’ 122-yard game is the most receiving yards by a Minnesota tight end since Visanthe Shiancoe’s 136-yard performance against the Atlanta Falcons almost ten years to the day on Dec. 21 2008.The two touchdowns that Rudolph caught tied his career-high for most touchdowns in a game. The last time he’s done that was when Minnesota faced the Lions (funny) on Nov. 23 2017. Rudolph hasn't seen many targets over the past few weeks. His trend was definitely on the downslope in terms of production in the passing game, and with only a couple years left on his contract, he needs to start proving that he wants to stick around. A factor contributing to Rudolph’s performance could have been the healthy scratch of Laquon Treadwell. A decision that was made shortly before the start of the game. Chad Bebe was Treadwell’s replacement, but didn’t record a catch (not sure if he had many , if any offensive snaps). All of this Walter Payton Man of the Year talk must be getting him all hyped up or something. I liked the way he played, and hope to see that performance continue against Chicago next week and potentially into the playoffs. Even if Rudolph didn’t catch that 44-yard Hail Mary touchdown then he’d still have a season-high 78-yards. The Minnesota Vikings have signed kicker Dan Bailey, owner of the second-best field goal percentage in NFL history and replacement for rookie Daniel Carlson.Bailey’s deal was done on Tuesday, after the Vikings waived Carlson fresh from his 0-for-3 game at Green Bay.The fifth-round draft pick from Auburn missed field goals of 48 Womens Ameer Abdullah Jersey , 49 and 35 yards, with the last two failed tries coming in overtime and forcing the Vikings to settle for a 29-29 tie with the rival Packers.“It’s hard to figure out. You think you’ve got a guy for a while, and then he goes out and misses three in a big game,” coach Mike Zimmer said on Monday in discussing what he said was an “easy” decision to cut Carlson. “But things happen Marcus Epps Minnesota Vikings Jerseys , I guess.”The Vikings drafted Blair Walsh in the sixth round in 2012 and watched him become an All-Pro as a rookie, so general manager Rick Spielman sent two sixth-round picks to the New York Jets just to move up in the fifth round for Carlson in search of similar returns.Four days after Carlson was formally awarded the job upon the release of incumbent and seventh-year veteran Kai Forbath, he missed two 42-yard field-goal tries in a preseason game. Zimmer was peeved enough that night to order a 2-point conversion try after a touchdown to send a message to Carlson about his lack of room for error on a team with sights set on the Super Bowl.Carlson made a 48-yard attempt plus three extra points in the opener on Sept. 9 against San Francisco and he sent nine of 10 kickoffs over two games into the end zone for touchbacks, but leg strength can’t cover up inconsistency from shorter distances. Carlson acknowledged afterward a decreased self-confidence when he lined up for the 35-yarder on the last play of the game Minnesota Vikings Jerseys 2019 , a red flag for his ability to smooth out a rough start.Bailey has made 186 of 211 field-goal attempts, an accuracy greater than 88 percent that trails only Baltimore’s Justin Tucker. The 30-year-old Bailey slumped last season after a groin injury that kept him out for four games, missing five of 13 field goals upon his return and producing the first two failed extra points of his NFL career to foreshadow his release by Dallas on Sept. 1. He has the track record, though Trae Waynes Jersey , to give the Vikings faith they’ll get three points when they drive close enough to earn it.To make room for Bailey, the Vikings waived second-year wide receiver Stacy Coley. He became expendable when wide receiver Aldrick Robinson was signed on Monday. Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen have formed one of the league’s most potent wide receiver duos, but they could use more depth behind them.___
