Record-Seekers vs. Cardinals
GAME NOTES vs. CARDINALS
Brad Johnson's 271 yards passing move him into 37th place in NFL history, surpassing Ron Jaworski's 28,190. He becomes only the 38th quarterback in NFL history to reach 28,000 yards.
Chester Taylor's 27 rushing attempts give him a season total of nine games in which he has had 20 or more carries, a team record. He broke Chuck Foreman's mark of eight from 1975.
Taylor's 100-yard rushing game set a team record for most 100-yard games by a player in his first season with the Vikings, giving him four. That bettered Foreman's three 100-yard games in 1975.
Taylor's 66 yards rushing in the first quarter is a team record for most rushing yards in the first quarter of any Vikings game. Ted Brown (1983) held the previous record of 60 yards.
Jermaine Wiggins' six receptions moved him into a second-place tie for most career receptions by a Vikings tight end. He and Stu Voigt each have 177 catches, but Steve Jordan holds that record with 498 catches from 1982 to 1994.
The Vikings' 30 first downs rank tied for seventh-most in team history.
