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:
- Adam Thielen (46 TDs)
- Dalvin Cook (42 TDs)
- Stefon Diggs (24 TDs)
- Kyle Rudolph (20 TDs)
- Justin Jefferson (17 TDs)
- Latavius Murray (14 TDs)
- 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.
And the Vikings will set the NFL-finest active streak on the line with a new mentor in September. Kevin O’Connell took about the staff in February following a protection-initial coach, Mike Zimmer, place collectively the nifty streak.
First up? The Environmentally friendly Bay Packers at U.S. Bank Stadium on September 11th. Minnesota will host Eco-friendly Bay for the initial time ever in a 7 days 1 game with followers in attendance. The Packers are early two-point favorites.
