Vikings' Harvin the real deal


MINNEAPOLIS (WXOW) - The Vikings show no signs of slowing down, neither does wide receiver Percy Harvin.

The fourth year player out of Florida accounted for nearly half of Minnesota's 30 points Sunday. That's an exclamation mark on the type of year Harvin's having.

With a kick return touchdown to accompany Sunday's rushing and receiving scores, he's averaging more than seven yards a catch and five yards a carry. His teammates definitely realize Harvin's triple threat potential.

"[He's] one of the best players in the NFL right now," said QB Christian Ponder. "Very dynamic. I saw someone call him a beast. That's probably a good way to describe it. He's so athletic. That touchdown catch that he had, to make all those guys miss was unbelievable."

RB Adrian Peterson added, "Man, he's extremely talented. I said this last week. He's the best player I ever played with. He's just so explosive. We just need to continue to get the ball in his hands. He'll make something happen sooner or later."

The Vikings take to the road next Sunday against the Washington Redskins.
