Watch: Stefon Diggs, Adam Thielen make big catches on Vikings' first drive

EAGAN, Minn. -- Stefon Diggs scoring touchdowns in the east end zone at U.S. Bank Stadium has become a welcomed occurrence for the Minnesota Vikings in games against the New Orleans Saints.

The Minnesota receiver capped off his team's first drive by catching a 1-yard pass from Kirk Cousins to help the Vikings tie their NFC rival, 7-7 in the first quarter.

The Vikings would have scored one play before on a pass that was ruled incomplete to tight end Kyle Rudolph in the back of the end zone, but Rudolph's foot went out of bounds and he was the first player to touch the ball upon coming back in.

On a drive that spanned 13 plays for 91 yards, Cousins regularly targeted Saints cornerback P.J. Williams, who gave Diggs' plenty of room to maneuver on his TD and allowed Adam Thielen to catch a 14-yard pass that pushed the Vikings into New Orleans territory simply because he failed to flip his head around while tracking the Pro Bowler's route.
