Peterson, Vikings Defense Key Win Over Lions

Posted by Mike Wobschall on September 26, 2010 – 3:06 pm

A superior effort from both superstar RB Adrian Peterson and a stout Vikings defense keyed the Vikings to their 1st victory of the 2010 regular season, a 24-10 decision over the Detroit Lions at Mall of America Field on Sunday.

The Vikings went into the locker room at halftime with a 14-10 lead behind a 24-yard TD reception from WR Percy Harvin and a 6-yard TD run by Peterson. After beginning the season 0-2, though, that 4-point halftime lead didn’t feel too comfortable. But Peterson and the Vikings defense would take care of business in the 2nd half.

Led by LB Chad Greenway and CB Antoine Winfield, who both had a game-high 9 tackles, the Vikings defense kept Detroit off the board for the game’s final 2 quarters. Both LB Ben Leber and Winfield grabbed INTs late in the game to help keep the Lions off the board.

While the defense was at work grinding the Lions offense to a halt, Peterson put the offense on his back and ultimately sealed the Vikings victory with a sensational 80-yard TD run late in the 3rd quarter.

Peterson’s 80-yard scoring run was the longest of his career and the 4th-longest in team history. It gave the Vikings a 24-10 lead and it was the highlight of his 23-carry, 160-yard, 2-TD effort.

The win moves Minnesota to 1-2 on the season as they head into their bye week. Stay tuned to for more post-game coverage.

    I KNEW we could WIN with AP running the ball until Rice is back – If we would have prepare properly the first 2 games and ran AP 40 to 45 times – YES we would have won those games too !!!

    Does anyone agree with me that our secondary looks much improved this season? I felt like Abdullah did a great job today, as well as Cedrick Griffen and Chris Cook. I think we have the best defense in the NFL right now. BUT, Favre still finds ways to turn the ball over and we got lucky we played the Lions this week. The interceptions need to stop.

    Great for AP, defense, and mostly great to have the win. But Favre needs to stop giving the ball away. Better teams will take advantage.

    good win. we really needed that. im a huge favre fan. but the interceptions need to stop. but this isn’t like him. something is wrong. i dont know about you guys but by watching him i get the impression that he’s mentally tired. physically too im sure but more mentally. i think he came back for the team. but thats not enough. i honestly think that he is just so tired. he’s had a great career. but i think he should hang em up. my favorite qb of all time so im not hating on him. there’s just something about him this year that i have never seen. hopefully he picks it up and has a good year and goes out looking good.

    It’s nice to have a W on the board. But the offense made A LOT of mistakes. Interceptions, blown blocks, penalties all around, and dropped ballz just about made me sick. Almost everybody on the offense (outside of linemen)dropped the ball at least once, on way or the other, including Peterson. That needs to change in a hurry, or we are going to be hurting like mad with the tough schedule right around the corner.

    His ankle has the equivalent of crushed glass in it . This crushed glass is rubbing against the nerves and tissue in the area(example- skin, adjacent bone, etc,. ) when he moves. This is why in part he was hesitant to come back. This is why in part he was slow to come to camp. He did not want his physical limitations to hurt the team like his shoulder did down the stretch with the Jets. He knew the surgery was not 100 percent effective in smoothing out the spurs. He is in pain and that level would affect anyone’s performance. He won’t ever cry about it, he’s too tough. let’s hope the team can rally around the “gipper!” and continue to make plays. He can’ t carry us this year and should not have too, but he is still a great on field General with the heart of a champion!. receivers need to catch the ball, etc.

    Chilly actually spreaded the ball around more, for the first time I didn’t know what play they were going to run, hope he keeps it up and not get back to vanilla offense again. Oline had some problems but also did a decent job, when favre doesn’t get protection and gets hurried he throws ints. Favre needs to cleanup but I see him more comfortable.

    I think there was some good fortune that you played the lions. If it had been almost any other team in the NFL you would have lost.
    Coaching as atrocious for both teams and the caliber of play matched the coaching. This was a competition to see who did not play the worst and the best running back did the rest. You better hope allot changes during the bye week. Injuries return, and chemistry gets better or in the next 5 weeks you may not win again. To line is made up of cheer leaders it looks like and if that does not change then Favre better retire or buy a wheel chair.

Our defense will keep us in every game this year. It’s up to the offensive line ( which is made up of two pro bowlers and young talent) and Adrian to get us to the playoffs.

    Hope Sullivan and Shank are O.K. Nice to win a game at home. I wondered when Chili would put Cook in at center if Sullivan went down. Cook played center in college. Defense played a good game as usual. Doesn’t look like the team is going to tally 48 sacks, but position play and wins are what really matter. Hope things jell more after the bye on offense. Bernard who?

    Brett said in his post game comments that he would be here until Friday looking at film and what not and he hinted that it would be nice if the receivers would stick around and work some stuff out. IF ANY RECEIVER DOESN’T TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THIS OFFER FROM BRETT AND SPEND SOME TIME WITH HIM EVEN THOUGH IT IS NOT MANDATORY, THEN I GUESS THEY DON’T WANT TO IMPROVE THEIR GAME. I HOPE THEY DO STAY VOLUNTARILY.

    Poor protection causes tipped B A L L S which lead to interceptions. Poor route running leads to interceptions as well. I hope these receivers realize that winning a Super Bowl Ring is something special to be treasured the rest of their lives and that they put more time into watching film and seeing what the problem is and then practicing it doing it the right way.

    Hey, I saw Baby Parker Brett Favre on TV, up in the family football suite, watching his Grandpa fight the big bad Lions! I think he brought the Vikings good luck … maybe he should attend EVERY home game (heck, maybe every road game, too)!! Actually, he was pretty big for his tender age … might football be in his future?? Great job, Vikings … see you after the bye!

    Its obvious that AP is going to carry the team this year- and thats fine! Give him the ball and watch him do hs thing. He should have gotten 50 more yards if it wasn’t for those two careless penalties by Cook and BB.

    Loaddholt had a terrible first half- but did have a better 2nd half. The O line did better in the 2nd half as well. AP is ready to carry the load, Favre and the receivers are still hit and miss. Before the season started, that early bye looked like a bad thing, but given the situation, it couldn;t have come at a better time.

    We have an even better D with the secondary back. I don’t see oldschool here… are you reading up? We seemed to snach defeat from the jaws of victory in the 1st two games. We won, but the “O” mistakes made it into more of a game that it should have been. H.Abdulah. needs to take our O-tackles on his fasts with him because they seem very slow and have unlcear minds on the pass blocking. Sully going down and Shenk are quite the problem for the Jets game. I like the TE sets with Dugan and Kleinsasser in there. We really need help slowing down the speed rushers otherwise reciever play and signings are all moot. These guys can catch and block that is all we need with the great “D” and running game.

    i would sure like to see some wildcat with Joe Web going in to give Favre a break after he gets abused. It was fun to see Web in the pre-season. They should find a way to get him involved, even if as a receiver on a reverse or kick return guy.

I agree the secondary is a lot better and trust me favre will get better as the weeks pass and u will see what I mean when we play the jets. We have the old ap back and the recievers are catching a little better. A win against the jets and ppl will be talking about how we have turned things around. Godd game defense and ap. Nice game harvin. Look to see u against the jets sullivin and schonice.

    Seriously…Loadholt needs to pick up his game. That right O-Line is leaky. It caused a fumble in the end zone last week and this week could’ve done the same kind of damage, if it weren’t for the idiotic penalty on the Lions.

    O-line…yep, they need to get some fundamentals down. Otherwise Favre will continue to gunsling and get intercepted.

    God I hope Brett walks into Chilly’s office this week and gives the ball to T-Jack. There’s no shame in saying that he just doesn’t have it anymore and will do whatever it takes to help T-Jack and the rest of the team win, but from the sidelines. Let’s see here, a QB rating of 68 at home against the WORST team in the league? We don’t win this game if AP doesn’t play like the MVP of the league and the defense (once again) plays like the best in the NFL. In three games Favre’s QB rating has been 72, 44, and now 68, which is an average of 61.

    We don’t pay a player 1 MILLION A GAME to have a 61 QB rating! We’re better off having him be a consultant, off the field, to the team at $100,000 a game, so we can free up the money and get Vincent Jackson and a couple other studs this year. Unfortunately, based on Favre’s play so far, it’s obvious that we’re one player, in this case one QB, away from the Superbowl this year.

    Great game AP! Was that really Chuck Foreman on here? If it was, that is awesome! Well, Favre was mediocre at best today which is an improvement over the first two games. Hopefully he will continue to get better. Hey London: Last time I checked Trent Dilfer has the same number of Superbowl rings as Favre. The Jets looked pretty good tonight vs the Dolphins. (At least their offense did anyway) Should be a good game. Go Vikes!

    Just Win, are you sure you not a Packer fan posing as a Viking fan?

    I agree with Soldier1986, if the OL doesn’t allow Favre to get hit in the arm via the blindside while throwing the ball, the second interception never occurs, overall, I thought it was a well managed game. One good thing to come out of this game is Favre and Percy seem to have gotten back in sync.

  52. By gottarush on Sep 27, 2010 | Reply

    No one wanted to dump Peterson last year when he fumbled in overtime against Chicago and cost us home field advantage. No one said he was washed up because he wasn’t gaining as many yards as in the past years. And no one wanted to get rid of him because he fumbled …how many times in the NFC finals? And no one is suggesting to take him out on third downs because he dropped and easy one today on the first drive.

    I was packer (small p, now) fan for over forty years – I bailed when I found out how “small” packer fans were, and what liars the management are. I doubt if I will ever go back. It has been great rooting for the Vikes, until now, hearing some of the fans who want to point the simple finger of blame at one guy. This team has some continuing problems, and they started with the failure to improve the O-line, and continued with Rice and Harvin’s injuries.

    1. The o-line is poor, especially at both tackle. This is the same line that got Favre trounced in the NFC game last year, and the same team that failed to open many holes for Peterson this year. In fact, Peterson is doing great this year despite it. Look at the replays; you’ll notice he made his biggest gains after getting hit behind or at the line. It’s all adrian. Mckinnie is responsible for an interception today, and a touchdown last week. Loadholt gets beat like a drum.

    The other interception occurred because the backup center didn’t hold his block on Williams long enough on the screen. Did anyone notice on a screen play in the second half Favre getting hit after almost immediately getting the snap?
    This is the same line that game him all day against the Pack both games last year; but they aren’t getting it done this year.

    2. The receivers aren’t getting separation. The only time I have seen one of our wide receivers wide open this year has resulted in two touchdowns – Harvin today, and Shank last week. Look at the highlights of other games and other teams, and you will see receivers with separation making the big plays.

    What I saw in Favre’s face today was frustration. I have never seen him look over at the sidelines with the look he had on his face today. I am sure he wishes he didn’t come back; he’s an easy target to blame; and unlike Rivers, Manning, and Brady that whine and yell at their receivers, Favre never has. He would rather take the blame publicly that point the finger at his teammates.

    You know, Brett was “right-on” with his throws to Berrian/Basket and neither one of them could catch the ball.!!! Yes, he did throw some interceptions but if your WR’s arent going to make the attempt to catch the ball and be more aggressive what is one to do.. Clearly frustration was evident in Brett’s face I agree. Hopefully, this bye week has come at the right time for the Vikes. It’ll give us 2 weeks to try and get some rythm between Brett and his receivers. Why not utilize Joe Webb as a receiver. He is tall/fast and I think he could clearly be an asset as a WR. We will need to spread the field wide-open when we face the Jets in 2 weeks. Same goes for Green Bay. If we cant get the throwing game in sync it is going to be very tough to win against these teams. AP was really super yesterday but we cant expect him to play on every down. I liked the “mixing-up” yesterday. It was like a breath of fresh air. It would be great if we could put a couple of wild-cat plays in. To all the people who think T-Jack is the answer to our QB dilemma? He probably could be more agile/moveable out of the pocket but with the receivers not in sync and not knowing their routes I doubt very seriously that it would make that much of an impact at all. GO VIKES!!!!!

    @gottarush i totally agree with you man. and im a former packer fan myself. lol i know i know. dont bash me too much. one thing i have noticed though is the fans here are great. il never forget when brett broke dan marino’s 421st td pass in minnesota, and all the fans were on there feet clapping and cheering. now thats class. i could never see packer fans doing that for another teams player. even if he is a legend. haha they proved that by booing there own last year. but favre to me is not only the best qb to ever play the game….but the best person as well. and your right. brady and manning are always yelling at there recievers but i have NEVER seen favre yell at his receievers. he always takes the blame on himself. now i know the packer fans are going to bash me on here but i dont care. the fans make me sick. boo your own legend? did you not realize the packers made favre retire in the first place? then when he changed his mind and wanted to come back, they tried to offer him 20 million dollars to keep his mouth shut and stay retired. real classy. but they can say what they want. until i see rodgers break just about every passing record in the book, and has 300 consecuative starts, playing through injuries we couldn’t even imagine. favre is the best. thats all i have to say

    Yes gottarush agree also. Anyone who expects Favre to have the year he did last year is being unrealistic (to put it mildly) Favre has done what no QB has done for this Franchise for a long, long time- Give us a chance to win week in week out. What else can you ask for? AP has been a monster at RB, our D is playing well, the passing game will get better. I really don’t think Favre cares if he has 20 TD’s and 20 INT’s
    as long as theres a win at the end of the day thats all that matters. Favre CARRIED the team last year, this year its time for everyone to carry him-to the finish line. SuperBowl of bust….SKOL VIKINGS!!!!

  59. By Just Win on Sep 27, 2010 | Reply

    gottarush, Vegas Viking, and Viking-ology,
    Thank you for supporting my point of view! You’re giving all these reasons why Favre has a QB rating of 61, which is proof why he’s NOT worth 16 million this year. He’s suppose to elevate the rest of the team, particularly the wide receiving core, which he’s obviously not doing.

    AS A MATTER OF FACT, HE’S PLAYING EXACTLY LIKE T-JACK! Before T-Jack was benched in 2008, his QB rating against the Packers and Colts was 59 and 72 (an average of 66, which is still slightly better than Favre). If Shiancoe doesn’t cut off his route in overtime against the Packers then T-Jack doesn’t throw the Int. Likewise, if Shiancoe doesn’t drop the 10 yard wide open pass in the end zone against the Colts, the Vikings win that game. These facts don’t matter, because the only thing that matters is the Vikes LOSING both games, which is why he got benched!

    You’re essentially saying that Favre needs everyone on the team to play a perfect game in order for him to justify his 16 million salary and allow the Vikings to win. In other words, it needs to be the other way around. He’s getting paid 16 million so if the rest of the team doesn’t play a perfect game, we should still win. Otherwise, then he should retire, and let T-Jack play, who’s only getting paid 1 milion this year, NOT 1 million a game.

    True Vikings fans only want the team to win, regardless of who’s at QB. It’s a statistical fact in nearly every NFL game played since the QB rating calculation came out; a team who’s QB has an average rating of 61 is going to lose almost all its games, unless of course you’re playing the Lions.

    Do you really blame the 2nd interception on Favre, rewatch the tape, tell me if you don’t see the line folding and Favre getting hit in the arm as he’s throwing the ball? Take away that interception and the rating is much higher. I’d be the first to say something if he threw a careless interception, but the fact is, you can’t place the blame on him for that second one.

    I watched the Packers vs the Bears tonight. Wow, what a game. It was fun watching two QB’s who can move out of the pocket and make plays with their legs. They had pressure all night but still made plays by scrambling and finding open receivers. They did not move around slowly like an old man and then blame the offensive line like Vikings fans do. That’s what a QB who is an “athlete” is supposed to do…avoid pressure, get out of the pocket and wait for a receiver to get open or run the ball or throw it away. Give us Rodgers or Cutler over Favre any day of the week. Soldier: I know, you are right…Dilfer has nowhere near as many INT’s as Favre does. That record will always belong to Brett. Soldier, when are you going to get it through your freakin’ head…Yes, Favre had a pretty good career but he is too old now. Why is that so hard for you to understand? Let it go already.

    and if you look at stats. favre has one of the best interception/touchdown ratios. better than marino, montanna, tarkenton. and when you play as long as he has, yes there will be alot of bad throws too. lol why out of all the things he has acomplished you just look at interceptions. lol wow. i dont get why you have this huge hatred for him. lol
