Pack Wins Border Battle 03 Dec 12

The Minnesota Vikings got 210 rushing yards from star running back Adrian Peterson, but still couldn’t win Sunday’s game in Green Bay. Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers rallied his team with 13 straight points in the second half to win 23-14. Rodgers fired for 286 yards and a touchdown. Meanwhile, Peterson averaged exactly ten-yards per carry and scored on a career-long 82-yard run in the first half. The Vikings passing game sputtered, as quarterback Christian Ponder threw for only 119 yards on only 12 completions. He tossed two interceptions, including a key turnover early in the second half in the end zone. Minnesota fell to 6-and-6 on the season, while the Packers improved to 8-and-4. Minnesota hosts Chicago this Sunday.
