Vikings bursting bubbles on screen pass to Harvin

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) — The "bubble" screen pass to the elusive, powerful Percy Harvin is a favorite way for the Minnesota Vikings to use their most versatile player.

It also creates other opportunities for the offense, forcing opponents to brace for the "bubble" at the risk of ignoring another player. It's another example, too, of how an effective passing game in today's NFL doesn't necessarily mean a steady stream of long downfield throws to tall, traditional-size wide receivers.

According to research by STATS, Harvin leads the NFL with 329 yards after the catch, more than 80 percent of his receiving total of 407.
