Vikings At Packers: Adrian Peterson Is Not Human

The Minnesota Vikings have taken the lead against the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field, and they got it in the way we've become accustomed to seeing. . .on the legs of Adrian Peterson.

After a punt on Green Bay's latest possession, the Vikings took over on their own 8-yard line. After a Christian Ponder scramble on first down made it second-and-1, Adrian Peterson was stopped for no gain on second down.

On third down, Peterson took a handoff around the right side and broke numerous Green Bay tackles, eventually turning on the speed and blasting down the right sideline for an 82-yard touchdown run. My words can't do it justice. . .you're going to have to see the highlights. The Blair Walsh extra point made it 14-10 in favor of Minnesota, who has a lead over the Packers for the first time since. . .well, it's been a really, really long time.

The run by Peterson gives him 126 yards on 13 carries on the afternoon. This is Peterson's sixth consecutive game with over 100 yards, giving him sole possession of the Vikings' franchise record. He came into this game tied with Robert Smith in that category.

With 3:34 remaining in the first half at Lambeau Field, the Vikings lead the Packers by a score of 14-10.
