GAME BALLS

Adrian Peterson, Vikings: Seems he fell to the perfect team in the draft. Had 103 rushing yards in debut, and turned a dump pass into a 60-yard TD.

E.J. Henderson, Vikings: Moved to middle linebacker this season and was an opening-day force with seven unassisted tackles, including two sacks.

PLAY OF THE GAME

Midway through the fourth quarter.

Third-and-5 for the Vikings at the Min 40

The situation: The Vikings had a 10-3 lead.

The play: Tarvaris Jackson threw a swing pass to Adrian Peterson, who bobbled it, then wrapped it up and raced 60 yards for a touchdown.

The result: The play was the only offensive touchdown of the day; in fact, neither team had a red-zone possesion.

JACKSON'S ACTIONS

Play: Nothing spectacular. A couple of overthrows, an interception on a tip. Wasn't sacked, didn't have happy feet. Grade: Wade

Leadership: Ran the conservative game plan to a "T," despite problems hearing plays in helmet's wireless receiver. Grade: Fran

Stats: When Peterson turned a short pass into a 60-yard TD, Jackson's QB rating hopped to 75.1. Grade: Wade

Overall: The Vikings certainly have to develop a downfield passing game. They got away without one Sunday. Grade: Wade
