Patterson became the first player in 30-years to finish a single month with three rushing touchdowns and three receiving touchdowns. The last player to do so was former Vikings and 49ers running back Roger Craig, according to Pro Football Talk.

Patterson still getting a lot of love in Tennessee, where he played one season of college football before being drafted by the Vikings. 79 percent of voters on a poll at think Patterson should be named the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year. As we noted earlier this week, Patterson is up against some stiff competition. notes that Adrian Peterson, Percy Harvin and Randy Moss are the only other Vikings to win the award.

Patterson also joins five Vikings on the All-NFC North team for the 2013 season, which was released today, according to ESPN.

Patterson made the team as a return specialist. He led the NFL averaging 32.4 yards per kick return. Running back Adrian Peterson, left tackle Matt Kalil, right tackle Phil Loadholt and defensive end Brian Robison also made the team.

NFL Network's Dave Dameshek had nine Vikings on the All-NFC North team in his summer of 2013 predictions.
