Vikings Lose Despite Peterson's Efforts

Posted: Updated:

Adrian Peterson had an absolute monster day for the Vikings yesterday with 144 yards and two touchdowns -- and those were just his first-half numbers! -- but the Vikings' defense couldn't stop the Seahawks' running game.

Marshawn Lynch ran for 124 yards and a score as Seattle racked up almost 200 yards on the ground. The Vikings' offense couldn't produce after halftime either, failing to consistently move the ball and scoring just three points.

The Vikings will host the Detroit Lions at noon on Sunday, and they could be without their most dynamic player for that game; wide receiver and return man Percy Harvin is dealing with a severely sprained left ankle and came to the team's locker room on crutches today. Harvin injured his ankle on a run late in the third quarter of yesterday's loss.
