Minnesota Vikings receiver Adam Thielen’s cleats feature Alex Trebek tribute

All eyes will be on red-hot Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook during "Monday Night Football," but teammate Adam Thielen grabbed the attention during pregame warmups.

The Vikings wide receiver wore a tribute to late "Jeopardy!" host Alex Trebek on his cleats before the divisional game against the Chicago Bears.

Trebek, 80, died of pancreatic cancer on Nov. 8. 

The cleats featured a drawing of Trebek with a halo and the words, "We will miss you, Alex." The $19,000 was a reference to the show's prize winnings and Thielen's jersey number, 19.

"No matter where you were from, I feel like Jeopardy was a part of all of our lives in some way," tweeted artist Dan Gamache, who designs custom footwear for NFL, MLB and NBA players.

For #MNF pregame tonight my guy @athielen19 will be honoring the legend Alex Trebek who passed last week. I feel like no matter where you were from I feel like Jeopardy was a part of all of our lives in some way. 🙏 #skolpic.twitter.com/1itrgOM4M8
