Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen tied an NFL record today during the team's 37-17 against the New York Jets. With 110 receiving yards on the day, he is the second player in NFL history to have at least 100 yards in seven-straight games -- Demaryius Thomas was the only other player to do so. 

It's been a magical season for Thielen, who now has 58 receptions on 79 targets for 712 receiving yards and four touchdowns. 

Being lined up in the slot has worked wonders for Thielen, as it's much harder to shut down a receiver from that part of the field. He'll have a great chance to make it eight games in a row with over 100 yards against a weak New Orleans Saints secondary next week.
