Cordarrelle Patterson sets new NFL record for 100-yard TDs

No player in NFL history has as many 100-yard touchdowns as Cordarrelle Patterson of the Minnesota Vikings.

Patterson took the second half kickoff back 104 yards for a touchdown during Sunday’s win over the Arizona Cardinals, giving the Vikings’ explosive returner four touchdowns of over 100 yards during his first four NFL seasons.

According to Randall Liu of NFL Communications, Patterson now stands alone as the only player ever to score four times from over 100 yards.

Patterson has kickoff returns for touchdowns of 105, 109, 101 and 104 yards. His 109-yard return for a score during his rookie season set a new NFL record for the longest score in league history.

The new king of 100-yard scores helped the Vikings snap a four-game losing streak on Sunday.

Patterson was hardly touched on his 104-yard touchdown to open the second half, which gave the Vikings a 27-17 lead just 13 seconds into the third quarter.

“There’s no way I could have missed it. I got up to it and I just made one cut,” Patterson said, via 1500 ESPN in Minneapolis. “I seen the kicker – made the kicker miss and another dude behind me. It’s just green grass [after that].”
