    99 Eddie Payton kickoff return Sept. 14, 1981 vs. Oakland
    98 Charlie West punt return Nov. 3, 1968 vs. Washington

    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


    Go Vikings!

    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.

    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.
