The Vikings, who exploded for 23 points in the second quarter, were held to a 53-yard field goal in the third quarter. But St. Louis also struggled to get into any sort of offensive flow, failing to put up any points.
Minnesota running back Adrian Peterson continues to put up big numbers on the day, accounting for 142 rushing yards and a touchdown on 19 carries, good for an average of 7.5 yards per carry.
