Patterson NFL Off. Rookie of the Month

Green Bay Packers v Minnesota Vikings

Congrats to rookie Cordarrelle Patterson who earned NFL offensive rookie of the month honors after an outstanding December for the Vikings. 

Patterson had three rushing TDs and three receiving TDs making him the first rookie to have three rushing and receiving touchdowns in the same month since San Francisco's Roger Craig, 30 years ago. 

His six touchdowns in December were the third most in the NFL during the final month of the regular season.

Patterson also averaged 27.7 yards per kick return and set the Minnesota team record with 1,393 kick return yards in a single-season. 

In his first NFL season Patterson became to record four receiving TDs, three rushing TDs and 2 kick return TDs in a single-season. He also became the first player in NFL history with a 100-yard kick return TD,  75-yard receiving TD and 50-yard rushing TD in the same season.
