Vikes Play Bucs, Peterson POW 25 Oct 12

The Thursday night spotlight shines on Minneapolis this week as the Vikings host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Vikings are 5-and-2 on the season after a 21-14 win over Arizona last week. Minnesota is now 4-and-0 at home, but has lost five-straight meetings with Tampa. The Bucs are 2-and-4 and have dropped nine in-a-row on the road dating back to last season. Coverage begins at 6pm on SAM 107.3.

Vikings running back Adrian Peterson was named the NFC Offensive Player of the Week for Week Seven yesterday. Peterson rushed for a season-high 153 yards and one touchdown in Minnesota’s 21-14 win over the Cardinals last Sunday. It marked Peterson’s 29th 100-yard game, tying Robert Smith for the most in Vikings history. He leads the NFL in yards from scrimmage with 787 this season.
