Adrian Peterson came just nine yards short of breaking Eric Dickerson's single-season rushing record. Dickerson expressed his joy on Twitter.
A 9-6 record and a shot at the playoffs shows good signs for the future of the Minnesota Vikings, meaning hopeful improvement to win the NFC North.The dominance of running back Adrian Peterson and a mediocre defense has been the crutch of Minnesota this season, but what are some things or who are some players that can help the Vikings wear the crown of their division?Keep in mind...
MINNEAPOLIS -- The man who ought to be the NFL's Most Valuable Player was still on the field, doing a postgame interview. The Minnesota Vikings' much-maligned owner was whooping it up as he scampered out of the locker room, ebullient that his team had won 10 games, seven more than last season. Players were singing and clapping about being the league's most surprising...
Two weeks ago, Eric Dickerson stated his case that he does not want Adrian Peterson to break his single-season rushing yards record.
On Friday he stood his ground yet again when speaking with the NFL “I do not want him to break my record,” Dickerson reiterated.”
“I’m not going to tell that lie, but he’s such a great player, and I’ll say it: If a record that is meant...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Packers coach Mike McCarthy wanted a first-round bye in the playoffs. But 13 hours after losing Sunday to the Minnesota Vikings and missing out on the right to bypass the postseason's opening weekend, McCarthy wasn't dwelling on his team's demotion to the NFC's No. 3 seed.
"There's nothing but positives right now," McCarthy said Monday...
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. Antoine Winfield's absence for much of Sunday's game didn't end up costing the Minnesota Vikings in their 37-34 playoff-clinching win against the Green Bay Packers.
Not having Winfield for Saturday's postseason rematch against Green Bay would likely do more lasting damage.

Adrian Peterson didn’t set the NFL’s single-season rushing record, but there were plenty of other marks he broke in NFL and Vikings history. So did Blair Walsh and Christian Ponder.
Back and forth they went, Adrian Peterson and Aaron Rodgers going at each other with so much on the line. The emotional pendulum swung wildly in one of the most memorable games of this long and bitter rivalry.
It was a game so good that it deserves a rematch. And that's just what it will get.
Peterson rushed for 199 yards to become the seventh player to surpass 2,000 in a season...
Adrian Peterson ran right past everyone this season. Past all those running backs before him who couldn't make it to 2,000 yards in a season. Past every doubter who dared to think he wouldn't make it back from a devastating knee injury.
Past everyone except Eric Dickerson.
Peterson became the seventh player to rush for 2,000 yards in a season, plowing through the Green...
(Eds: Adds quotes, details. With AP Photos.) As disappointing as their loss to the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday had been - especially since it cost them the NFC's No. 2 seed and a first-round playoff bye - the Green Bay Packers had no time to feel sorry for themselves.
With those same Vikings coming to Lambeau Field on Saturday night for an NFC wild card game, the work week is...
The Green Bay Packers and Minnesota Vikings each have something to play for when the long-time NFC North rivals meet up at 4:25 p.m. ET this...
