vikes just lost a close one to TB, and Peterson did not touch the ball once in the 4th quarter. Idiotic! They deserve to lose.

Minnesota had the ball for all of 2 minutes and 30 seconds in the fourth quarter, and most of that time was spent either punting, fumbling, or "throwing an interceptioning". Peterson may have been off to a great start, but his his team sucked too much to allow him to bail them out that time. Hopefully they stink less @ Jacksonville...

I agree with the last post, but Peterson being arguably themost explosive player in the game should have the ball in his hands at the end of a close game. Minn was a td away from winning that game. If someone's gonna fumble the game away, it should at least be your playmaker. He did it the week before.
