Peterson Notches 3rd TD, 51st Career

Posted by cjsiewert on December 5, 2010 – 2:32 pm

Even after being held out of practice for most of the week with an ankle injury, Vikings RB Adrian Peterson has proven his standing as the best RB in the league. Peterson dashed off the right side for a 43-yard TD – his 3rd of the game and 51st career rushing TD – on the 1st play of the 4th quarter.

Peterson now has 16 carries for 107 yards and 3 TDs – his first 3 TD performance since last season’s NFC Championship game and his fourth 100+ yard game of the season.

The Vikings lead the Bills 38-7 early in the 4th quarter.

    Yep, way to go AP. This game is over. Vikings are sending in the victory package by handing it off to Young every play up until a 4th down shows up.

    Who starts at QB next week?

    It looks like Frazier is testing out backups all over the field now too.

    I’m going to guess that Favre starts at QB, just because he has an ego the size of an inflated metrodome. Hopefully for only a series or two though before Jackson takes back over.

    It was fun to see TJack, but certainly Favre would have also won this game. Offense sells the tickets, DEFENSE wins games!!!

    It would be nice if TJack could play part of the games.

    If I had to bet, I’d bet on Favre starting. I’m not saying that’s right. But Favre is still a good qb.

    Favre should still start. TJack’s perfofmance was a tale of two halves.

    If Favre had an ego Purp, we would have seen him arguing with Frazier to put him back in. I think Favre will accept Frazier’s decision, whatever it is.

    Did Webb get to play any?

    I’ve sang TJacks praises a lot. I worked today and was able to see the last couple of plays of the 3rd and all of the 4th. TJacks mechanics looked horrible. His deep pick in the 4th he threw off of his back foot. I really like this guy, I know he doesn’t get much in the way of reps with the 1st unit, but when you get in and have time, step up and throw the ball.

  16. By PurpleParody on Dec 5, 2010 | Reply

    Conner – we had a huge lead in the 3rd and 4th quarters, and TJack was trying to spread his wings more with that extra lattitude. He was playing smarter in the first 2 quarters while building the lead.

  17. By NovaScotiaVike on Dec 5, 2010 | Reply

    He also helped Buffalo build a 7-0 lead.

  18. By Frederick Jones on Dec 5, 2010 | Reply

    Webb had a nice kickoff return, and played in a few offensive sets. No one threw to Webb. You didn’t miss much there. Jackson to Rice was pretty exciting, and the d-line had some sacks/hurries.

    Who started in place of Madieu Williams.? Great move! Man, I love Leslie Frazier.

  20. By NovaScotiaVike on Dec 5, 2010 | Reply

    Honestly, Buffalo handed that game to us . We would have won with Ryan Leaf at QB.

  21. By NovaScotiaVike on Dec 5, 2010 | Reply

    Credit our defence,also.

  22. By Stephanie on Dec 5, 2010 | Reply

    Favre’s and Tjacks stats were almost identical from this week and last week. Favre last week: 15/23 for 170. Tjack today: 15/22 for 187. last week Brett had 0 TDs and 0 ints, today Tjack had 2 Tds and 3 ints. one int was not his fault (bounced off the receiver), but two of them were. and the first TD to Rice was ALL Rice. it sure is nice to have Rice back. we’ve missed the receivers making plays on the ball all year long. I’m not saying that Tjack played bad, he just was up and down. I’m sure those that hate Favre will say Tjack is awesome and Favre sucks, but Adrian Peterson and the defense played great too. the defense only gave up 7 points and caused 5 turnovers. That’s huge. AP had 3 Tds and the Vikings had over 200 yards rushing. so let’s wait before hailing Tjack as “THE ANSWER.”

    I’d prefer Terry Bradshaw!

    Stephanie, I hope you took AP in your fantasy team like I suggested!

  25. By Frederick Jones on Dec 5, 2010 | Reply

    The Buffalo Bills are now 2-10. We play 3 straight games against current 8 win teams. The right decisions need to be made. But the Vikings could win with Favre, Jackson, or Terry Bradshaw at the QB if the o-line blocks well, and the d-line stops the run, and puts pressure on the QB.

    Football is played in the trenches.

  26. By NovaScotiaVike on Dec 5, 2010 | Reply

    TJack is not the answer unless the question is “Who can just not read defences?”

  27. By PurpleParody on Dec 5, 2010 | Reply

    Fred – It’s tough to believe that the O-line will block well. Both Guards are 2nd-stringers (unless Hutchinson returns next week). With that, the mobility of Jackson gives us the better chance, so long as he continues to play with the intelligence he was showing early on.

  28. By PurpleParody on Dec 5, 2010 | Reply

    But overall, I support the choices that Frazier makes. He seems to be pushing this team back into the right direction.

    good game but the season is over so we should really see some of our players for next year…both green bay and chicago only need one more win and we cannot catch them… no chance at playoffs at all

    nice to see a quarterback that can run and hand off the ball instead of waiting on Peterson to get to him. Seems like it helped him today

  31. By NovaScotiaVike on Dec 5, 2010 | Reply

    But there are hundreds of QB’s that can run and hand the ball off!

  32. By Stephanie on Dec 5, 2010 | Reply

    If only Childress would have been fired earlier in the season. we might be in a better position. oh well. I like Leslie Frazier. I like how he deals with all the players, I like how he handles himself during a game and just how he coaches overall so far. I know it’s only been a couple games, but I like him as a person too. he reminds me of Tony Dungy. hopefully the Vikings can continue playing strong even if they don’t make the playoffs.

  33. By Stephanie on Dec 5, 2010 | Reply

    David, you think it helped how the ball was handed off to Peterson? like Tjack was responsible for how well Peterson ran? Peterson has been GREAT pretty much all season, regardless of how it was handed off. I’ve also heard that Peterson shouldn’t stand so far back, that he should start closer to the line of scrimmage.. Neither of those things are as important as the offensive line blocking and AP making something out of nothing when a hole’s not there.

  34. By Frederick Jones on Dec 5, 2010 | Reply

    Actually, I think we are going to get a chance to see if we still have a shot at the playoffs. 9-7 could still win our division. Sure we will need ALOT of help but big upsets have happened before.

    The litmus test is the “ebars.” They visit the dome next Sunday. Tune in or attend the game in person. You’ll find out.

    Peyton Manning looks like he’s going to start crying.

  36. By Frederick Jones on Dec 5, 2010 | Reply

    Nova, Peyton Manning is the best QB in the NFL. Unfortunately his stats will suffer because his team is hurting. Favre or Jackson, they are both good. It doesn’t matter who the Vikings play. (Most of the time it doesn’t matter, and I am not drinking Koolaid!)

  37. By mr smiff on Dec 5, 2010 | Reply

    Stephanie, TJack’s second pick WAS his fault. He threw it too high and too late.

    Fred, I didn’t say Manning isn’t good. I simply said he looks like he is going to start crying.

    Jackson doesn’t belong in the same paragraph as Favre or Manning, Fred.

  42. By Frederick Jones on Dec 5, 2010 | Reply

    NOVA, I am not sure what you mean when you say Manning, Favre, and Jackson do not belong in the same paragraph. Unless you mean that you cannot compare the CFL with the NFL.

    I mean Favre and Manning are good. Maybe Jackson is destined for the CFL.

    Maybe.

    Farve has been throwing multi picks a game ALLLLL frickin year- this is Jackson’s FIRST start basiclly in over 2 years. cut him some slack-he did the best he could against a NFL team. our o-line sure did look a lot better the second he came in! on that play where he got that 13yd scramble and the late hit. I guarantee you that farve would have got stripped on that play because the bills player was like 2 feet away from him but jacksons speed was just to much. also that int he threw toward sidney was just a “F it” throw. we were up by 4TD’s. i believe he gives us the best chance to win!

  47. By Conner on Dec 5, 2010 | Reply

    Settle the QB issue. Let’s implement a wishbone offense. Favre is the first one to take on Peppers, then T-Jack, and Webb. By the time the game is over, we’ll all be screaming for Steve Dils to be our QB again!

    What a difference having Sidney Rice back makes! Why the heck didn’t the Vikings make him have his surgery earlier???? We would be going to the Super Bowl!!! Adrian is doing great, no fumbles! Brett, the Vikings team, all of us fans would all be happier if Sidney didn’t sit out most of the year! Why doesn’t the oline protect Brett? He has never been clobbered like he has this year. It is soooo important to protect your quarterback. Brett, I hope you are ok. You are Ironman but you can take only so much. Great win!

    Hey NovaScotiaVike-T-Jack can’t read defenses and you can’t spell defenses.
