Minnesota Vikings Detroit Lions Game Results
By Vikings Tickets Staff Writer R. Murray
Vikings Lions Game Results:
YESS Vikings fans, they did it again! Adrian Peterson and Christian Ponder led the Vikings to a 34-24 victory over the Lions on Sunday at the Mall of America Field.
Adrian Peterson Highlights:
Adrian Peterson, RB, Minnesota - Peterson rocked it in the second half of a week 10 game against the Lions. He finished with 171 yards rushing, one touchdown and 24 fantasy points for all you fantasy football players.
Christian Ponder Highlights:
If you watched the game, all you saw on the field or the screen was Christian Ponder blowing up! Ponder threw for 221 yards and two touchdowns.
the Vikings defense forced two key turnovers and Blair Walsh kicked four more field goals to deliver a much-needed victory after two straight losses had cast some doubt around the team’s surprising 5-2 start. And Ponder needed this bounce back more than anyone on the team.
Twice in the past three weeks Ponder managed to get fewer than 65 yards passing, and impatient Vikings fans were starting to call for his benching because, obviously, they want to see some winning action on the field! But he completed 24 of 32 passes on Sunday, with a 1-yard touchdown to rookie Jarius Wright and a 20-yarder to Kyle Rudolph in the fourth quarter that helped Minnesota hold off the Lions.
Percy Howard Still Out:
Vikings star receiver Percy Howard is still out with a sprianed left ankle.
Bye Week is this Week:
We at Vikings Tickets hope everyone catched the game because this week is a bye week. No Vikings Sunday this weekend.
