EAGAN, Minn. (AP) — Justin Jefferson is not used to losing, coming from college powerhouse LSU.

His first two professional games with the Minnesota Vikings have been about as defeating as a player could experience in the sport.

Jefferson went 34-7 with the Tigers, including winning the national championship in 2019. The Vikings still have plenty of their schedule left to play, but they’ve been soundly beaten by Green Bay and Indianapolis over the first two weeks of this strange pandemic season.

LSU never had a losing streak while Jefferson was with the program.
