The Minnesota Vikings shut down the Metrodome on a high note. More accurately, a rookie wide receiver turned the Metrodome into the Cordarrelle Patterson show.
Patterson scored both of the Vikings' touchdowns. He scored on a 50-yard run in the first quarter and caught an eight-yard touchdown pass in the fourth to give the Vikings a 14-13 win over the Detroit Lions.
The win closed out a tough season that could possibly be the last game with the Vikings for several players, as well the head coach. It also helped the Vikings finish with a 4-3-1 record over the second half of the season.
Here are some takeaways from the final game played in the Metrodome.
