GAME BALLS

GAME BALLS

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.

PLAY OF THE GAME

Fourth quarter, 1:38 remaining

Bears kicking off with score tied 31-31

The situation: An 81-yard pass from Brian Griese to Devin Hester capped a 14-point Bears comeback.

The play: Robbie Gould's kick was returned 53 yards by Adrian Peterson to the Chicago 30, setting up Ryan Longwell's winning field goal.

JACKSON'S ACTIONS

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

TOUCHDOWN DANCES

Offense

About the Cowboys

Dallas fell to 5-1 on Sunday, getting trounced by -- and who doesn't -- the visiting Patriots 48-27. "We wanted to be one of the elite teams," Cowboys coach Wade Phillips said. "Obviously we're not."

Dangerous player

Terrell Owens, above, is well aware of the Vikings' problems on pass defense. The wide receiver averages 16.8 yards per catch.
