The Minnesota Vikings have Stefon Diggs and that’s a good thing. It’s Diggs’ world and we are just living in it.

The history book on the Minnesota Vikings is an interesting book. From Super Bowl losses to NFC Championship Game collapses to literal roof collapses to Brett Favre basically lying dead on the frozen turf at TCF Bank Stadium, well, simply, there are a lot of stories. One of the most common threads for the Vikings has been some very solid wide receivers. From Randy Moss to Sidney Rice to now Stefon Diggs. It’s a real good thing the Vikings have Diggs.

The first game the Vikings had Case Keenum as the quarterback, it did not go well against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Game two of the Keenum era was much more enjoyable against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Keenum went 25-33 for 369 yards and a touchdown in the Vikings 34-17 victory. Most importantly he was finding Diggs.

In the ball game, Diggs, naturally, was the best receiver on the field. Diggs had eight catches on 11 targets for 173 yards and two touchdowns. That is what Diggs’ stat line should commonly look like and for good reason.

What’s that reason? Diggs is officially a big time wide receiver. He’s one of the best in the league.

Did anyone question it? I’d hope not, but I think its official after Sunday.

It is one thing for Diggs to go crazy to be with Sam Bradford at the helm as QB. Bradford has a great skillset to get receivers the ball. Keenum doesn’t have those same skills and Diggs still went off.

Diggs makes highlight reel catches and that makes not only the Vikings offense better, but the Vikings better as a team as a whole. Vikings fans are currently watching something really, really special.
