That's the 3rd time I've witnessed history at a Vikings game this season.
3 NFL records and now 1 Vikings all-time record (in numerous categories!)

Very cool.

We haven't had a cornerback take an interception from endzone to endzone yet. Hey Antoine Winfield, hey Cedric Griffin, you have a chance to make history

Surprised there were no long returns for the great D of the 70's.

There was. It was just returned the wrong way.

Cool! The Vikings is the only team to have a kickoff return, punt return, and inception for touchdowns in the same game, I don't think that will be broken for a very long time!

I thought of big Jim, but I think that was in the 60's. Love it when he tosses the ball in the stands.
;D

It was in 1964, but Marshall was part of that great D of the 70's as well. Marshall played for the vikings for 19 seasons, 1961-1979.

I don't think you will ever see a D-lineman have that long of a career with the Vikings ever again.
