The final time the Minnesota Vikings unsuccessful to score a landing in a game, Barack Obama was president.

Including playoff video games, Minnesota has scored a landing in 87 consecutive video games, the longest active streak in the NFL. And excluding postseason video games, for people who want common season-only studies, the streak is 83 online games.

Without a doubt, the last time the Vikings took the area and didn’t get into the endzone was December 18, 2016, at residence compared to the Andrew Luck-led Colts. That sport was marred by futility for Minnesota — and it evidently acquired from the catastrophe.

Due to the fact then, the Vikings — led by head coach Mike Zimmer and quarterbacks Sam Bradford, Scenario Keenum, Kirk Cousins, and Sean Mannion — have hit paydirt in just about every contest.

Touchdowns in 87 straight games is the 12th-longest streak in NFL background (including playoffs), and the 83 standard-season touchdowns is the 10th-longest streak in standard-season record.

Inside of the streak, these are the touchdown leaders:

  1. Adam Thielen (46 TDs)
  2. Dalvin Cook (42 TDs)
  3. Stefon Diggs (24 TDs)
  4. Kyle Rudolph (20 TDs)
  5. Justin Jefferson (17 TDs)
  6. Latavius Murray (14 TDs)
  7. Alexander Mattison (8 TDs)

The New Orleans Saints maintain the all-time file for most touchdowns scored in consecutive online games with 165, from 2005 to 2015. So, Minnesota has virtually a further decade to go if it desires to conquer the all-time streak. However, if Kirk Cousins and buddies score in each individual sport during 2022’s initially 13 matchups, they’ll inhabit sixth position all-time in December.

Apparently, teams from a distinct Vikings era scored in more consecutive online games than the batch of latest document-holders. From 1995 to 2000, the Vikings trotted into the endzone in 96 consecutive games, the eighth-longest streak at any time.
