Something had to give, unless the game ended in a tie.No such luck.Adrian Peterson never could get going, as he rushed for only 80 yards. Ryan Succop kicked five field goals for KC, and tied the team record for the longest field goal, at 54 yards. A 22-17 loss.The Vikings are 0-4 for the first time since 2002.There are now only two undefeated teams left in the NFL, and naturally they are both in the NFC North: Green Bay and Detroit.A long year continues to get even longer.

The first four years of Adrian Peterson's career are similar to Barry Sanders' start in Detroit. Can the Vikings build around Peterson better than the Lions did around Sanders to promote winning?
This Sunday features a matchup of two teams in free fall, as the 1-3 Arizona Cardinals head to Minnesota to take on the 0-4 Vikings. Sure the game will feature Larry Fitzgerald and Adrian Peterson, two of the biggest stars in the NFL, but other than that, this game has the makings of a real stinker.

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. Adrian Peterson knows which team will win when the 0-3 Minnesota Vikings travel to face the 0-3 Kansas City Chiefs this weekend.

Running the ball and stopping the run are two of the principles under which the Vikings of late have been built, and they have been successful in those areas. From 2006-09, they were the first- or second-ranked run defense in the league and they are still ranked...
The bad news for the Vikings is that they’re finally trailing at the half. The good news for the Vikings is that they’re finally trailing at the half. In the first round of the Andrew Luck Elimination Series, the Chiefs hold a 9-7 lead over Minnesota after two quarters. For the Chiefs, kicker Ryan Succop…
It was a fight on and off the field on Sunday. The Chiefs were fired up and ready to go. You could tell that they really wanted this one and their emotions showed that.
They started by forcing a three and out on the Vikings’ first possession and from there the defense stepped up big. When Ryan Succop knocked down his first of five field goals it was the first time the Chiefs...

The Minnesota Vikings were still holding postseason hopes this past week even though they started the season 0-3 and had lost double-digit halftime leads in each game.
Minnesota will have a tough time talking about playoffs -- or anything other than a rebuilding season -- after Sunday's 22-17 loss at previously winless Kansas City. Only one...
Matt Cassel hit Dwayne Bowe for a 52-yard, fourth-quarter touchdown pass, and Ryan Succop was perfect on five field-goal attempts as the Kansas City Chiefs held on Sunday for a 22-17 victory over the Minnesota Vikings.
