Heartbreaker For Vikings

Heartbreaker For Vikings

Marlon Brown caught a nine-yard touchdown pass from Joe Flacco with four seconds left to lift the Ravens over the Vikings 29-26 from a snow covered M&T Bank Stadium.  Cordarrelle Patterson had a 79-yard TD reception with 45 seconds left to put Minnesota up four points.  Patterson ended with 141 yards while Matt Cassel threw for 265 yards and two scores.  The Vikings host the Eagles on Sunday.

Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson left yesterday’s loss to the Ravens in Baltimore early.  Peterson exited in the second quarter.  He walked off the field but was carted to the locker room.  He is expected to have an MRI on his foot today.
