Vikings At Packers: Minnesota Answers With A Touchdown

The Minnesota Vikings needed to answer the Green Bay Packers' momentum with something of their own, and that's just what they did.

Starting late in the first quarter, the Vikings started a drive that featured a lot of Adrian Peterson. Peterson carried the ball seven times on the drive, and in the process went over the 8,000 yard mark for his career. Only four running backs have reached that mark faster than it took Peterson, who reached the mark in his 85th career NFL game. Congratulations to him on his achievement.

The Vikings' drive spanned 14 plays and 71 yards, taking 6:49 off of the clock in order to do so. The drive concluded with a 7-yard pass from Christian Ponder to Kyle Rudolph. Ponder went 5-for-5 on the drive, with four of those completions going to the big tight end from Notre Dame.

With just over twelve minutes remaining in the first half of play, the Minnesota Vikings trail the Green Bay Packers by a score of 10-7.
