Bleacher Report

The Minnesota Vikings' Cordarrelle Patterson continues to show just how explosive he can be on the field.

On Sunday against the Detroit Lions, the receiver took a pitch in the backfield. He then decided to reverse course and use his speed to burst through the Detroit defense to get into the end zone.

Summing up the rookie's versatility is Jon Ekstrom of the Vikings' public relations team:
