Ford led the group, with five receptions for 43 yards. Wright had 31 yards on two catches. Simpson gained 29 yards on three receptions. Ellison had one catch for 13 yards.
Wright might have been more involved if the Vikings passing game wasn't completely stiffled, with quarterback Matt Cassel completing just 13 of 27 passes for 114 yards, but then again, he had only two targets on the day. Cordarrelle Patterson had seven, Greg Jennings had six, and Jerome Simpson had five.
For most of this season, Wright has played just a peripheral role in the passing game, and that will likely be the case again Week 17 against the Lions.
Wright caught just four passes, but made them count, gaining 95 yards. Wright had two big plays, catching a 26 yard pass in the first quarter. In the third quarter, he caught a 42 yard pass. Wright will take on the Bengals Week 16.
