ANIMATION: Percy Harvin's 105-Yard Kick Return For A Touchdown

Percy Harvin holds the Vikings' franchise record for kick returns for touchdowns, and he added to that total on the opening kickoff of today's game between the Minnesota Vikings and the Detroit Lions. Our friends at the SB Nation mothership have given us a look at the play in GIF form. Enjoy!

Percy Harvin is just ridiculously fast, isn't he? All it takes for #12 is just that one move in order to get himself going, and there are few special teams units in the National Football League that are going to be able to catch up with him when he gets that much open space.

Surprisingly, this is the first time that Percy Harvin has found the end zone for the Vikings this season.

Minnesota's second drive has just stalled, and Chris Kluwe has put the Lions inside the 20-yard line for the Lions' second drive of the afternoon.

A little more than nine minutes remaining in the first quarter of play, and the Minnesota Vikings lead the Detroit Lions by a score of 7-3.
