Adrian Peterson played a big role in Minnesota's surprising 34-10 win over Arizona. He had three touchdowns and 80 yards in just the first quarter, and finished with 122 yards.

Until now, Peterson's offense had been for naught as the Vikings struggled their way to an 0-4 record. Against the Cardinals, the Vikings were able to avoid the second-half collapse that occurred against Tampa Bay and Detroit.
