The Seattle Seahawks beat up on the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday as they went on to win their third straight game, 38-7. For the Vikings, it was their second loss in three games and one key piece of their team was not very happy following the game.
According to NFL.com’s Mike Silver, running back Adrian Peterson was pretty upset with the way things went on Sunday. He even went as far as to say that the team was beat in just about every aspect of the game, but especially one that didn’t involve the players on the field.
After the game Peterson — who had proclaimed his high regard for second-year Vikings coach Mike Zimmer in my feature on “NFL GameDay Morning” — was frustrated enough to tell reporters, “(The Seahawks) were just the better team. They were more aggressive, more physical, and they outcoached us as well.” Asked to elaborate on the outcoaching part, Peterson said, “In so many different areas.”
I’m sure the staff for the Seahawks did do a better job on the day. However, Peterson’s 18 yards on the ground don’t really help a team have success either.
