On Sunday, it took him all of 12 seconds to change that.
The Vikings won the coin toss of their Week 4 match-up against the Detroit Lions, and elected to receive. Jason Hanson kicked it deep, and Percy Harvin took the ball in the left-hand side of the end zone. Harvin started moving to his right, found a seam, made one cut up the field, and that was all it took. Harvin outran the Detroit special teams for what they're calling a 105-yard kickoff return for a touchdown to start the afternoon off.
The return was Harvin's fifth return for a touchdown as a member of the Minnesota Vikings, which is a Minnesota Vikings record.
With 14:40 remaining in the first quarter of play, the Minnesota Vikings lead the Detroit Lions by a score of 7-0, but a big pass interference penalty on Jamarca Sanford has given the Lions the ball deep in Minnesota territory on their first possession.
