Many Vikings fans were unsure how Adam Thielen's next chapter of his career would go with the Carolina Panthers.

Now, after a near career-best showing in Week 3 for the Panthers, it appears Thielen's next career move may turn up aces after all.

Thielen and the Panthers fell to 0-3 with a loss to the Seahawks, but it was a dominant day for the former Minnesota-Mankato star.

Thielen hauled in 11 catches on 14 targets for 145 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 37-27 loss to Seattle.

It was Thielen's second consecutive game with a score.

All told for his career, it was Thielen's fourth-best receiving yardage output of his career, trailing games of 202 (2016), 157 and 166 (2017).

It might be a struggle this season for the Carolina Panthers in general, who after the 0-3 start take on the 0-3 Vikings this weekend, but Thielen may be a bright spot in an otherwise disappointing offense in Charlotte.

The Panthers and Vikings kick things off at noon on Sunday from Bank of America stadium in Charlotte.
