Eric Kendricks’ mom wrote "Get me a sac" in a text message conversation with her son before the Vikings season opener last Sunday in Tennessee.

The second-year linebacker responded "I want an interception!"

Inspired by her son's response, Yvonne Thagon declared “Let’s make it a pick 6 while you’re at it then.”

Well, “My mom gets what she wants,” Kendricks posted Monday on Instagram with a photo of the conversation they had just hours before game time.

The second-year linebacker picked off Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota late in the third quarter and returned it 77 yards for a touchdown to help lead the Vikings to a 25-16 victory.

Kendricks found his phone flooded with messages after the game, including one from his mom proclaiming "You did it."
