There was a play last week where Thielen lined up in the slot on the right side, used a deke to get inside leverage on Cincinnati's Mike Hilton, then took a short pass and sprinted 20 yards for a touchdown. I'm not sure what was more impressive - the deke or the sprint. Probably the sprint, since Thielen is a relatively old man at age 31. He actually looked speedy. Thielen had a big day, catching 9 of 10 targets for 92 yards and a touchdown. His matchup with Robert Alford this week is no cakewalk.
