MINNEAPOLIS – Jermichael Finley, meet world. World, meet Jermichael Finley.
The Green Bay tight end, who many of us have touted as the second coming of Kellen Winslow, has finally emerged to make a huge impact in the first quarter of this game.
On his 62-yard touchdown reception, Finley ran past Vikings cornerback Antoine Winfield. Then he juked safety Tyrell Johnson. Finally, he lunged into the end zone with cornerback Cedric Griffin hanging onto his legs. That play was the modern-day definition of what a big-time tight end can bring.
Overall, Finley has three receptions for 82 yards here in the first quarter.
