Lost in the coverage of Adrian Peterson’s 180-yard, 3-TD outing in Cleveland, and Brett Favre’s efficient and successful 2-0 debut as QB, and Chad Greenway’s 3-turnover effort against the Lions, is the fact that Vikings 1st round pick Percy Harvin is off to a great start as well.
Through his first 2 regular season games in the NFL, Harvin has 291 all-purpose yards on 18 touches. He also has a receiving TD in each of the Vikings first 2 games. If the explosive rookie can find his way into the endzone on Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers, he’ll set a team record for most consecutive games with a TD at the start of a rookie season.
The record is currently 2 and was set by Sammy White in 1976.
Here is a breakdown of Harvin’s touches so far in 2009:
8 receptions, 77 yards and 2 TDs
6 kickoff returns for 178 yards (29.7-yd. average)
4 rushes for 36 yards (9.0-yd. average)
