Emotional Day For Peterson Ends In Loss



Bookmark and Share

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Cam Newton threw for three touchdown passes and ran for another score, and the Panthers romped past Adrian Peterson and the Minnesota Vikings 35-10 on Sunday.
   
Peterson finished with 62 yards on 10 carries and 21 yards on three receptions, but the Vikings (1-4) trailed the whole game and didn't have much use after halftime for Peterson. The NFL MVP learned on Friday a 2-year-old son of his died in South Dakota of injuries from alleged abuse.
   
Matt Cassel threw two interceptions, both to Mike Mitchell, and the Panthers (2-3) responded each time with a touchdown.
   
Whether the team was distracted by the tragedy or not, the Vikings were thoroughly embarrassed on both sides of the ball.

Adrian Peterson says he never wavered in his decision to play against the Carolina Panthers, two days after his 2-year-old son died in an alleged case of child abuse.
    
Peterson rushed for 62 yards on 10 carries in the Minnesota Vikings' 35-10 loss to the Panthers on Sunday. He says he doesn't expect others to understand why he decided to play. He says getting on the field helped him cope.
    
Peterson declined to talk about the relationship he had with the boy. He went to see the boy in a Sioux Falls, S.D., hospital Thursday. The mother's boyfriend is charged with aggravated assault and aggravated battery.
    
Peterson says he can't describe what it's been like to go through the situation.
