Addison took accountability, recognizing the importance of staying within the boundaries on the field. Despite currently holding the third position among rookie receivers in yards gained and leading in touchdown receptions, Addison voiced dissatisfaction with his recent performances, emphasizing the critical need to elevate his overall game.
The primary pass-catching force for the Vikings, 27-year-old tight end T.J. Hockenson, echoed similar frustrations regarding the team’s failure to execute during the Monday night game. Leading all tight ends in both receptions and yards, Hockenson emphasized the importance of establishing a consistent rhythm and concluding games on their own terms.
As the Vikings approach an upcoming bye week, there is an anticipation that it will serve as a period for reflection and adjustment, especially for rookies like Addison, who may still be acclimating to the demands of an extended NFL season.
