Thielen, Diggs have helped Vikings stay on track

EAGAN, Minn. (AP) Thanks to Adam Thielen, Minnesota's record book has already needed several revisions this year.

Just past the midpoint of the schedule for the Vikings, Thielen leads the NFL in receptions (78) at a pace that would fall four short of the all-time single-season mark (143). He leads the league with 947 yards. Kirk Cousins, the new prize quarterback with the annual $28 million salary cap hit, without prompting recently called Thielen the best player on this standout-laden team.

The accolades of this magnitude might not exist for Thielen, though, without Stefon Diggs.
