More On Winfield’s Night vs. Eagles

Posted by Mike Wobschall on December 29, 2010 – 10:02 am

We’ve already written about the huge night Antoine Winfield had against the Philadelphia Eagles on Tuesday. But here’s a little historical perspective on where Winfield ranks in Vikings history coming off that sensational performance against Mike Vick and Co.

Winfield’s fumble return TD in the 2nd quarter marks the 5th career return TD for the former Ohio State Buckeye. He has 2 career INT returns, 2 career fumble returns and a blocked FG return for TD. His 5 return TDs rank behind only Ed Sharockman in team history. Sharockman had 6 – 3 on INTs, 2 on blocked punts and 1 on a fumble recovery.

Also, Tuesday night’s fumble return TD for Winfield gives him 4 defensive TDs, which ties him for a team record in that category.

    it’s great to see the Vikings not packing it in for the rest of the season with nothing really to play for. this was clearly the best effort of this season. not too many teams have been able to contain vick this year, but this defensive unit literally battered him on this nite. cutos go out to joe webb for his first start. he performed like a seasoned pro. this game was the most pleasurable viking game to watch this year, finally something to cheer about!!

    @jim tutino … well said, and this game really was fun to watch … I think our defense removed Vick from MVP talk and our team owned a good playoff team

    That game was so much fun to watch. I am very proud of our Vikings. They could have easily packed it in and given a poor effort but they didn’t. Great job team!
