Hopefully you’ve been able to purge last night’s wretched game between the Minnesota Vikings and the New York Giants from your memory. (My advice is to drink. Heavily.) One unlucky person who has to spend all day reflecting on the game — because, I suppose, it’s his job and all — is Minnesota running back Adrian Peterson.
After only gaining 28 yards on 13 carries in Minnesota’s 23-7 loss, Peterson told reporters that his team is a bit out of whack:
It was definitely tough sledding. We just really couldn’t get anything established up front, and that’s where everything starts. We’re just kind of out of whack. [The Giants] were bringing some stunts and a lot of movement up front. Nothing we haven’t seen before, but it kind of put us in an uncomfortable position and we just struggled with that all night (Star Tribune).
The Minnesota Vikings, now 1-5 on the season, will play the Green Bay Packers next Sunday.
