Adrian Peterson, Vikings: We might want to reserve a spot in this section weekly for the kid. A team-record 224 rushing yards and three TDs on Sunday.
Devin Hester, Bears: 89-yard punt return TD, 81-yard reception TD ... other than that, not much.

A weekly look at the progress of Tarvaris Jackson
Play: No interceptions, no fumbles, only sacked once ... but two crucial overthrows. Grade: Wade
Leadership: After missing two games because of a groin injury, he rebounded nicely. Grade: Wade
Stats: Hit nine of 23 for 136 yards, but without a 60-yard TD pass, his stats would have been awful. Grade: Wynn
Overall: The best thing about T-Jack was the way he handed off to Peterson. Those were smaaaart plays. Grade: Wade
Defense The offense has the big edge now that it has this Adrian Peterson guy.
