Minnesota Vikings superstar Justin Jefferson shut the doubters up with his performance in Week 4 against Marshon Lattimore. Following two down weeks, some experts thought Jefferson would struggle against another top cornerback, but he popped off for 150 yards from scrimmage instead and helped Minnesota earn a big 28-25 win.

Following their hyped-up showdown, Jefferson trolled Lattimore with a post on Instagram.

Jefferson channeled Allen Iverson's famous step-over by sharing a picture of him looking down at the Saints' top cornerback. The stud wideout captioned the photo, "Ain't no question, i'm the answer!" to drive home the callback. He also added a picture of AI during the 2001 NBA Finals, which looks strikingly similar to his moment with Lattimore.

After lighting up another premier CB talent, Jefferson has certainly earned a victory lap. He hauled in 10 of 13 targets on Sunday for 147 yards, and added a 3-yard rushing touchdown as well. It's clear he got the better of Lattimore, who struggled to keep up with the star in man-to-man coverage.

This explosion should quiet any narratives about Jefferson struggling against physical coverage. He'll look to keep things going in Week 5 against the Chicago Bears. NFL odds on FanDuel Sportsbook project the Vikings as 7-point favorites.
