It wasn’t immediately apparent, but the first touchdown at the Vikings’ brand new U.S. Bank Stadium was a tribute to the late Prince.
Well, sort of.
Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers found Jordy Nelson in the end zone late in the fourth quarter for the first score in the Vikings’ new house. Rodgers to Nelson...Prince’s full name was Prince Rogers Nelson. Got that?
Well, one Twitter user did, and we found it to be a pretty great coincidence. I’m sure Prince, who is from Minnesota in case you didn’t know, would have appreciated it.
