Vikings: 'Thank you, Sam Bradford'

ST. LOUIS — Adrian Peterson had an 82-yard touchdown run while gaining 212 yards on 24 carries and the Vikings remained in the playoff picture while seriously damaging the Rams' slim hopes.

Minnesota scored 10 points in the second quarter off turnovers by QB Sam Bradford, who watched in disbelief from his knees on a 29-yard interception return by defensive end Everson Griffen.

"He threw it right to me," Griffen said. "It was a dream come true. I want to say 'Thank you, Sam Bradford.' "

"Yeah, that's one of those things I've got to be able to see," Bradford said. "He's right there."

Bradford has been sacked in 30 consecutive games, the longest active streak in the NFL.

Quarterback Christian Ponder, a former FSU standout, had no turnovers and ran for the game's first score for the Vikings, whose only other road victory was at Detroit in September.
