Vikings beat Packers – Make Play-offs

Posted on December 31, 2012 in Professional Sports News.

Adrian Peterson finished 9 yards shy of breaking Eric Dickerson’s single-season record, but he still powered the Vikings past the Packers 37-34 Sunday with 199 yards rushing.

The division champion Packers (11-5) dropped to the NFC’s No. 3  seed.

The Packers five-game win streak against the Vikings ended as well.

The two teams will meet in the wild-card playoffs on Saturday at 8:00pm.

Aaron Rogers completed 28 of 40 passes for 365 yards and four touchdowns and no interceptions, connecting with Jordy Nelson from 2 yards to tie the game with 2:54 remaining.

But Christian Ponder threw for three scores,  including one to Peterson.

Ponder went 16 for 28 passing for 234 yards, including a 65 yard zinger in stride to Jarius Wright midway through the fourth quarter.
