Adrian Peterson ran for 210 yards, but it was not enough, as the Green Bay Packers beat the Minnesota Vikings at Lambeau Field Sunday 23-14, said Dan Wiederer of the Star Tribune.
Despite a great effort on the ground, Christian Ponder threw two costly interceptions that ended up costing the Vikings the game, Wiederer said.
The Vikings playoff hopes took a big hit, as they fell to 6-6 with the loss, said Jack Cassidy of SBNation.com.
The victory was Green Bay's tenth straight over a NFC North opponent, and put them into first place in the division, Kevin Seifert of ESPN.com said.
The Chicago Bears lost at home to the Seattle Seahawks to allow the Packers to move into first place, Seifert said.
The Vikings will try to get back into the win column next week with a home game against the Bears, and will play the Packers once more in week 17.
