Peterson, Vikings run past Lions 34-24

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Adrian Peterson raced 61 yards for the game-sealing touchdown midway through the fourth quarter, padding his NFL rushing lead with 171 yards on 27 carries for the Minnesota Vikings in a 34-24 victory over the Detroit Lions on Sunday afternoon. Peterson had 120 yards in the final 15 minutes, 10 1/2 months after reconstructive surgery on his left knee. Ponder bounced back from a rough game with 221 yards and two touchdowns on 24-for-32 passing for the Vikings (6-4). Calvin Johnson had 207 yards on 12 catches, including a touchdown that brought the Lions (4-5) a little closer with 1:53 left. But Johnson's lost fumble near midfield on the previous possession put Vikings rookie Blair Walsh in position for his fourth field goal. Sunday, Nov. 18 the Lions host the Green Bay Packers with kick off at 1 p.m. Pre-game at Noon on 97.7 WTGV-FM. Thursday, Nov. 22 the Lions host the Houston Texans during the Thanksgiving Day game at Ford Field with kick off at 12:30 p.m. Pre-game at 11:30 a.m. on 97.7 WTGV-FM!
