Vikings RB Adrian Peterson gave the Vikings their 1s lead of the game after a 6-yard TD run through the middle of the Lions defense. Peterson recorded 28 yards on 5 carries during the drive and now has 12 carries for 54 yards and 1 TD on the day.
The scoring drive – that lasted 5:58 on 10 plays for 66 yards – was kept alive by a Lion penalty on just the 2nd play of the series. Vikings QB Brett Favre was sacked and fumbled but Lions LB Julian Peterson was flagged for unnecessary roughness resulting in a 15-yard penalty and the ball staying in the Vikings possession.
It’s 14-7 late in the 2nd quarter.
