Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Percy Harvin set a team record with his performance against the Tennessee Titans Sunday

With his receiving and rushing touchdowns Sunday, Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Percy Harvin became the first player in team history to record a receiving touchdown, rushing touchdown and kick-return touchdown in three consecutive seasons.

Harvin has compiled 407 yards and one touchdown on 38 receptions as well as 62 yards and one touchdown on 13 rushes so far this season. In the kick return game, Harvin has averaged more than 38 yards per return. He returned a kick 105 yards for a touchdown in Minnesota's 20-13 Week 4 victory over the Detroit Lions.

Teammate Jared Allen had high praise for Harvin following his performance Sunday, according to Ben Goessling of the Pioneer Press.

"He's probably the best player, if not the best player, in the NFL for what he does," defensive end Jared Allen said. "He's like watching 'Top Gun' out there. He hits the brakes and watches 'em fly right by."

Harvin's name has rightfully been mentioned in MVP discussions early on this season, but the Vikings wide receiver says he has more important things to worry about.

"It's humbling," Harvin said when asked what it means to have teammates calling him the league MVP. "It's a great honor, being (with) some of the names...But at the same time I'm just worried about doing my job at a high level. So I'm not worried about all the talk. I'm just trying to do what I always do."

After a surprising 4-1 start, Percy Harvin and the Minnesota Vikings find themselves in first place in the NFC North. Their next contest comes next Sunday against the Washington Redskins.
