Case Keenum rightfully gets a lot of credit for guiding the Vikings to the NFC’s second-best record, but the receiving tandem of Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen have proven prolific the last two seasons regardless of who’s taking the snaps. Sports Illustrated takes us inside the relationship between the best Vikings duo since Randy Moss and Cris Carter. Diggs and Thielen have identical football minds, visualizing routes with the same mnemonic rhythms. They both surpassed 900 receiving yards this season, and have 19 80+ yard performances between them since the start of the 2016 season. If the Vikings earn a spot in a hometown Super Bowl, the duo of Diggs and Thielen will be a leading cause.
