Vikings wide receiver Jalen Regor gave the Lions bulletin board material as Minnesota looks to clinch the division on Sunday.
The Vikings head into Sunday’s game with the Lions with a chance to grab the NFC North. First, they have to beat Detroit.
Wide receiver Jalen Regor is very confident he can do it.
“We’re going to win,” Regor told Chris Thomason of the St. Paul Pioneer Press, doubling down on his remarks with a victory assurance. “I won’t say anything about whether we win. I… expect us to win… I have no doubts.”
Jalen Regor needs to shore up his guarantee against the Lions
On the one hand, this is the kind of confidence you want from a player. On the other hand, these are some very large billboard materials to offer to the opponent.
The Lions have won four of the last five. Their only loss was on a last-second field goal against the Bills. They are playing their best of the season with a 40-14 win over the Jaguars. They are not a team to be ignored.
Rigor will have to back up his words with a big performance or he’ll be the highlight of Freezing Cold Takes this weekend.
He hasn’t really done it yet this year, his first with Minnesota after two years with the Eagles. He has six catches for 87 yards and one touchdown so far. However, if there was ever a time to hack, now is the time. He caught a pass in each of his last three games, including a 38-yard gain against the Jets.
It has to become one catch and a few yards a few catches and a few yards to make the guarantee stick.
