The Minnesota Vikings offense has not much made happen against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday. Adrian Peterson has been bottled up all afternoon as the Titans have dared Shaun Hill to beat them through the air and he has unsurprisingly proven not exactly capable of doing so.
Lucky for the Vikes, they have got themselves some playmakers on defense. One of those playmakers is middle linebacker Eric Kendricks, who made himself a play on this attempted play-action pass from Marcus Mariota.
Yikes. Mariota definitely wishes he could have that one back.
Mariota had been having an excellent game to that point, completing 18 of 26 passes from 197 yards and a touchdown to DeMarco Murray. A word of advice to the 2015 No. 2 overall pick: don’t try to sneak passes by Eric Kendricks in coverage, even if he did struggle in coverage last year. Dude is pretty quick.
