Adrian Peterson explodes for 82-yard touchdown run


We thought it could get ugly in at Lambeau Field.  And it is.  For the team we didn’t think it would get ugly.

Trailing by only three points, Adrian Peterson converted a third-and-one play from his own 18 into a first down — and a touchdown.

With Packers players seemingly slowing down as Peterson stumbled toward the sideline, Peterson shed the would-be tackler and exploded down the sideline.  He then managed to hold off a Packers defensive back who closed in on Peterson near the end of the run.

Peterson wouldn’t be denied.  In the end, it was an 82-yard run, and the Vikings now lead, 14-10.

    Great run by Peterson, but Ed Hochuli needs to retire. That roughing the passer call on Kevin Williams was unbelievable. I am so sick of the NFL and this officiating. Might as well not even watch when it’s a foregone conclusion who is going to win, thanks to the officials.

    Bring back the replacement refs, at least they let the players, play.

    As a Packer fan I am very worried about their Defense. They are always hurt and too young in key spots. This team might be in trouble.

    “For the team we didn’t think it would get ugly.” Your fourth grade English teacher just gave you detention for writing that.

    Prediction: AP breaks his own single-game rushing record today. 296+ yards by the end of the game. You heard it hear first.

    Cynics: How long until the Adrian Peterson/PED rumors start? Coming off a major injury, playing the best ball of his career… Just sayin’.

    Even the Packer fans were in awe…

    Several of the green and gold faithful were reaching out to high five AP!

    Of course it has been awhile since Packer fans have had the chance to see a future HOF running back up close… 😉

    I’ve seen enough of Ponder! Put the kid in.

    Ponder gets thrown to the ground no penalty Rogers get bumped penalty “what the hell is going on here”

    Packer fan here, AP is the best player in the league by a country mile. What he continues to accomplish after such a serious injury and such an incompetent QB is nothing short of the most remarkable thing I have witnessed in all my years as a football fan.

    He gets another big run and then our fearless quarterback throws the most inexcuseable interception I’ve seen. Across is body in the red zone. Practically playing catch with Burnett. Horrible quarterback.

    Ponder, Rix, Weatherford, Manuel, FSU QBs stink royally since Weinke took us to the 1999 National Championship.

    I am a Packer fan.
    AP is a beast.
    he is the best in league by far.
