Adrian Peterson has done it again. And it’s only halftime.
The best RB in the NFL took a handoff and ran off right tackle. It looked as if he’d be ushered out of bounds for a non-descript 8-yard gain. But Peterson didn’t stop running, and he wound up ripping off a career-best 82-yard TD run to give his team a 14-10 lead. Through 2 quarters, Peterson has 126 yards and the TD on 13 carries. It’s the 5th consecutive 100-yard outing for Peterson and the 7th of the season.
Green Bay got off to a fast start, taking an early 10-0 lead. But Christian Ponder found Kyle Rudolph for a TD late in the 1st quarter and then Peterson stunned the stadium with his incredible 82-yard jaunt to give the Vikings their 4-point lead at intermission.
Ponder is 5 of 8 for 36 yards with 1 TD on the day; he also has 4 carries for 14 yards. Packers QB Aaron Rodgers has been sharp, connecting on 18 of 23 passes already for 170 yards with 1 TD.
