Minnesota Vikings grab NFC North lead with win over Cardinals

| No Comments

Adrian Peterson ran for 153 yards and a touchdown Sunday to help the Minnesota Vikings take the division lead with a 21-14 win over the Arizona Cardinals in Minneapolis.
The Vikings defense held the Cardinals' offense to just two scores and cancelled out one of those in the second quarter when Minnesota safety Harrison Smith returned an interception for a touchdown, reported the Associated Press.
The Vikings needed every yard from Peterson today, as Christian Ponder struggled in the passing game. Ponder threw two interceptions in the game. He has turned the ball over seven times in the last three games, the Pioneer Press said.
Minnesota next faces the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Thursday night.
