Take a quick stroll down memory lane with PFW for a recap of the Vikings’ Week 10 contests each of the last five seasons:
2009: Vikings WR Sidney Rice had 201 receiving yards in Minnesota’s 27-10 win over the Lions. QB Brett Favre was on target all day, completing 20-of-29 passes for 344 yards and a score. RB Adrian Peterson had a nice day on the ground, compiling 133 yards and two scores on only 18 carries.
2008: Peterson’s 29-yard touchdown run in the final minutes of the game helped the Vikings top Green Bay, 28-27. They took an early lead on a pair of Gus Frerotte touchdown passes and safeties by DE Jared Allen and S Husain Abdullah. The Packers rallied with 17 unanswered points before Peterson put an end to any comeback hopes.
2007: Minnesota was shut out in a 34-0 loss to the Packers. The Vikings were completely shut down and unable to get anything going on the ground or through the air. Peterson had only 45 yards, and QB Brooks Bollinger was 16-of-26 passing for 176 yards with an interception.
2006: The Vikings had no answer for Favre’s two-TD, 347-yard effort in a 23-17 loss to the Packers. WR Billy McMullen scored both of Minnesota’s touchdowns. The first came on a 40-yard pass from QB Brad Johnson to cut the Green Bay lead to three, and McMullen recovered a fumble in the endzone later in the second quarter to put Minnesota ahead. But the lead wouldn’t last long, as Favre and the Vikings came storming back in the second half.
2005: Minnesota had three touchdowns in a 24-21 win over the Giants — but with little thanks to the offense. Defense and special teams led the way for the Vikings, accounting for all three touchdowns and a field goal. S Darren Sharper had the first TD on a 92-yard interception return before kickoff and punt returns by WR Koren Robinson and RB Mewelde Moore, respectively, put Minnesota ahead. The Giants then tied it with a touchdown before Vikings PK Paul Edinger hit a 48-yard game-winning field goal with 10 seconds remaining.
