The Minnesota Vikings’ Adrian Peterson had another huge day at the office, but it wasn’t enough to lead the team to victory as the Green Bay Packers improved to 8-4 on the season with a 23-14 win.

Peterson ran for 210 yards and a TD on 21 carries, but quarterback Christian Ponder didn’t complete a pass to a wide receiver until late in the 4th quarter, completed just 12 passes for 119 yards on the afternoon and threw two crucial interceptions as the Vikings evened their record at 6-6.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers led his team to scores on the first two drives of the game, capped by a 32 yard TD pass to James Jones (pictured) and a 30 yard field goal.

Peterson took over for the Vikings from there setting up a Ponder to Kyle Rudolph TD and taking advantage of poor tackling for an 82 yard TD run as Minnesota led at the half 14-10.

But numerous mistakes by Ponder and strong second half running by the Packers, who scored their first rushing TD in seven games when James Starks went in from 22 yards out in the 3rd to put the Vikings away.

With the Bears overtime loss to Seattle, Green Bay gains a share of the division lead while the Vikings fell two games off the pace. Minnesota hosts Chicago next Sunday at noon while the Packers host the Lions on Sunday Night football.
