Vikings' Adam Thielen makes one-handed TD catch falling out of bounds vs. Cowboys

6:29 PM ET

MINNEAPOLIS — Adam Thielen woke the Minnesota Vikings‘ offense up from its first-half slumber on their opening drive of the second half on Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys.

Quarterback Kirk Cousins took advantage of the Cowboys’ weak pass defense three plays into the Vikings’ first series of the third quarter, hitting Thielen on a deep crossing route for a 51-yard reception.

Six plays later, Thielen once again proved why he’s Cousins’ favorite red zone threat. Thielen ran a goal line fade on the far side of the end zone, hauling in a 2-yard touchdown with one hand, his second in as many weeks.

Okay, now that’s a 1️⃣0️⃣

The touchdown and subsequent point-after attempt cut into Dallas’ 16-14 lead.

According to ESPN Stats and Information, Thielen is the only player in the last four seasons to have a one-handed receiving touchdown in consecutive games.

Surely, this one will receive a higher grade than the “9 out of 10” Thielen’s rookie teammate Justin Jefferson bestowed on Thielen’s one-handed grab against the Chicago Bears last Monday.
