Adrian Peterson has two fumbles today and they’ve both been killers. One stopped the Vikes when they were in the redzone, going in to take an early lead, and his second came in the fourth quarter with the Vikes down 10-9 and trying to take control of the game. Brad Childress will get plenty of heat if this team loses but his players are not doing him any favors. And Detroit is flat out making plays on defense. Childress himself deserves much of the credit for the one big Vikings play so far in the second half – a slant pass to Bernard Berrian when the Vikes came out four wide (a rare formation for them), which resulted in a long touchdown. Unfortunately, the Vikes haven’t shown that four-wide look since. Apparently Childress believes in going away from what works. An interesting philosophy that, if he keeps it up, will get him ridden right out of town.
