ESPN comments:

Adrian Peterson's return didn't exactly spark the offense. He has now rushed 37 times this season for 72 yards, an average of 1.95 yards per rush. Peterson and the Vikings take their struggles to Green Bay in Week 16.

The biggest risers of the week are the Indianapolis Colts, jumping six spots from #24 to #18. The biggest falls of the week belong to the San Diego Chargers and our Minnesota Vikings, each plunging five spots.

The Vikings face the Green Bay Packers this Saturday afternoon at Lambeau Field.

Skol!
