In the Vikings final game of the season Patterson took a toss in the backfield, reversed field and ran 50 yards for a touchdown. Patterson also scored on an eight-yard reception that gave the Vikings a 14-13 victory.
Patterson finished his rookie season with nine total touchdowns and scored them in a variety of ways; he scored four on receptions, three on runs and added another two TDs via kickoff returns, including a NFL-record 109 yard. Despite the Vikings losing record, Patterson’s offensive versatility made Minnesota trading away Percy Harvin an afterthought and gives them an explosive weapon for years to come.
