Jordan Addison, meet the end zone.
The former USC and Pitt wide receiver scored an early touchdown for the Minnesota Vikings, giving his squad a 7-0 lead over the San Francisco 49ers.

The above touchdown is the rookie’s 5th on the season thus far.
Addison has hauled in over 22 receptions for over 300 yards so far this year after being selected 23rd overall in the 2023 NFL draft.
And Addison very nearly had a 2nd touchdown in the 2nd quarter. He was wide open for a score, but Cousins was unable to find him and the Vikings had to take a field goal.
The Vikings lead San Francisco 10-0 with under 2 minutes remaining in the first half.
