VIDEO: Vikings Star WR Adam Thielen Makes Absurd Sliding Catch on the Sidelines Against the Saints

Kirk Cousins first season in Minnesota was mired in disappointment, as the Vikings failed to live up to the high expectations that come with a contract of that size. On Friday, however, they got a fresh start, with Cousins leading the starting unit down the field for an early touchdown on what's likely to be his only series of the game against the Saints. The score was set up on a sliding catch by the only and only Adam Thielen.

Thielen is a Pro Bowler for a reason, as he's established himself as one of the best wideouts in the NFC. Cousins finding Thielen and Stefon Diggs early this season will be a recipe for success in Minneapolis.
