Vikings running Jerick McKinnon said all week that he’d need to put on a special show for his friends and family from Atlanta when the Vikings faced Atlanta on Sunday.

McKinnon, from nearby Sprayberry, Ga., definitely had something special in mind — and broke it out the minute he squirted out for a 2-yard touchdown catch against the Falcons, the only touchdown by either team in the first half.

McKinnon caught three balls for 18 yards in the first half. The touchdown was set up by a 30-yard romp by Latavius Murray.

The Vikings kept Atlanta out of the end zone, but only cracked the goal line once themselves.

But once was all it took for McKinnon to do his best Jamal Anderson impersonation.
