Five members of the Minnesota Vikings were on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" on Wednesday – but not by choice.

Fallon cracked jokes about Vikings and Seahawks players in his weekly edition of Superlatives, where he puts high school yearbook-style labels on celebrities. He picked out Vikings punter Jeff Locke, offensive lineman Austin Shepherd, defensive tackle Linval Joseph, linebacker Jason Trusnik and kicker Blair Walsh.

Jeff Locke: "Most likely to have sneezed himself into puberty."

Austin Shepherd: "Most likely to have just felt the Chipotle kick in."

Linval Joseph: "Most likely to open his mouth and have a canary fly out."

Jason Trusnik: "Most likely to wear a Pringles can as a helmet."

Blair Walsh: "Most likely to look like every member of One Direction combined."

The Vikings' official website responded by saying Walsh got the last laugh because he led the NFL with 34 field goals and is heading the playoffs.
