Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Justin Jefferson and offensive coordinator Klint Kubiak met with the media on Thursday at TCO Performance Center in Eagan.


Jefferson spoke about him winning the NFC offensive player of the month for November, how he prepares for when he is going to throw the ball on a play, what is going through his mind at the line of scrimmage when those plays are called, if he gets critiqued for his throwing, what his reads are when he is about to pass, what it is like to be a triple threat on offense, how he deals with outsiders commenting on his on-field body language, and what he sees in facing the Detroit Lions for a second time this season.

Kubiak talked about playing the Lions on Sunday, play-calling changes without running back Dalvin Cook, running back Kene Nwangwu’s role against Detroit, fullback CJ Ham’s season thus far, what he sees in Jefferson allowing him to throw the ball on some plays, what allowing Jefferson to throw adds to the offense, offensive lineman Ezra Cleveland’s impact, and what it means to be aggressive on offense.
