Minnesota’s star running back Adrian Peterson posted another 100+ yards rushing game and added a touchdown in the blowout victory.

Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater played well under center, completing 15 of 25 passes for 168 yards and a touchdown.

The Vikings defense was at their nasty best on Sunday night. The squad intercepted Eli Manning on three separate occasions, one of which was returned for a touchdown score by safety Harrison Smith.
