Minnesota Vikings Justin Jefferson criticized his team’s play following the Viking’s 30-23 loss to the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday.

The wide receiver said he was displeased with Minnesota’s play calling in the red zone and inability to take advantage of takeaways by the defense.

“I feel we should be more aggressive,” said Jefferson on the Vikings getting in the red zone and not scoring. “We definitely let them down. … We gotta find a way to get in the end zone.”

Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer responded to Jefferson’s comment.

“I addressed the energy level pregame,” he said, trying to defuse the situation. “We just didn’t start well but we came back and the energy level got up. Justin is a great kid I’m sure he’s just frustrated by not scoring TDs in the red zone. I don’t worry too much about Justin.”

Jefferson had all the right to be disappointed, as he had a good game. He even broke Odell Beckham Jr’s record while playing against him in the game. He now holds the record for the most receiving yards with 2,758 yards and counting. Beckham had 2,755 yards.

“I’m blessed, honored to God,” Jefferson said about the record. “Being in this situation, breaking the record with him in the building, I mean there was no other perfect situation for me. But you know a ‘W’ would definitely be better with that record but move on.”
