Adrian Peterson run has Vikings leading Packers, 14-10

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on December 2, 2012 – 1:26 pm

GREEN BAY–The Minnesota Vikings held a 14-10 lead over the Packers at halftime of today’s game  at Lambeau Field, as Vikings running back Adrian Peterson continued his miraculous comeback season with an 82-yard touchdown run.

Peterson’s long run was the big play in the Vikings’ comeback from a 10-0 deficit. The Packers scored on their first possession of the game when quarterback Aaron Rodgers threw a 32-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver James Jones.

The Packers increased their lead when Mason Crosby bounced a 30-yard field goal attempt off the left upright and between the posts. An apparent Rodgers-to-Jones touchdown pass was nullified by a holding penalty on tackle T.J. Lang.

Minnesota immediately responded with a 71-yard touchdown drive that was capped by quarterback Christian Ponder’s 7-yard touchdown pass to tight end Kyle Rudolph. It was on that drive that Peterson began to assert himself.

The Packers were fortunate that a roughing-the-passer penalty nullified an interception by Jared Allen deep in Packers territory late in the second quarter.

Green Bay lost wide receiver Jordy Nelson (hamstring) and Lang (ankle) in the first half. Lang was replaced by rookie Don Barclay.

Peterson rushed 13 times for 126 yards. Rodgers completed 18 of 23 passes for 170 yards and one touchdown. Ponder was a mere five of eight for 36 yards and a score.
