Adam Thielen reached a career and franchise milestone on Thanksgiving, becoming the first Minnesota Vikings wide receiver since Sidney Rice in 2009 to surpass 1,000 yards in a season. Thielen entered the day needing 84 yards to cross the threshold. He had amassed 916 yards by Minnesota's 24-7 win over the Los Angeles Rams in Week 12, which was the first time a Minnesota receiver reached 900 yards in the first 10 games of the season since Randy Moss in 2003. He wound up with 89 yards on eight receptions in the Vikings' 30-23 victory over the Detroit Lions. Thielen is also the first Vikings receiver to amass 1,000 receiving yards by the end of November since Moss in 2003.
