Research Notes

  • Blair Walsh tied an NFL single-game record with 3 FG of 50+ yards vs the Rams. It has been done 7 times previously, and most recently by Phil Dawson in Week 4.

  • QBR: Christian Ponder had a 96.9 Total QBR in Sunday's win over the Rams, the highest single-game QBR of his career. The 96.9 was also the highest by a Vikings quarterback since Brett Favre in Week 17 of 2009 against the Giants (97.1).

  • From Elias: Adrian Peterson now has 6 games this season with 150+ rushing yards, one shy of the single-season record set by Earl Campbell in 1980.

  • Adrian Peterson is the 4th player in NFL history with at least 8,500 rush yards and 75 rush TD in his first 6 seasons.

  • Adrian Peterson ran for 212 yards Sunday, his 4th career 200-yard game. Only O.J. Simpson and Tiki Barber have more in the Super Bowl Era.Since entering the NFL in 2007 there have been 24 individual 200-yard rushing games and Peterson has nearly 17% of them. Jamaal Charles and Michael Turner are the only other players with more than 1 in that span (2 each).
