Players of the game

• Vikings running back Adrian Peterson rushed for 182 yards, most by a Seahawks opponent since Frank Gore gained 207 yards in September 2009. Peterson is the first player in two years to rush for two touchdowns in the same game against Seattle.

• Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch gained a season-high 124 yards, his third consecutive game with more than 100 yards rushing.

Play of the game

Receiver Golden Tate's second-quarter touchdown was a vault worthy of the Olympics, Seattle's receiver jumping up and actually being flipped upside down after contact with a Minnesota defender. It was Tate's second touchdown of the game and gave Seattle a lead it never relinquished.

Turning point

Seattle drove 72 yards on its second possession of the third quarter. Seattle had seven rushes for 60 yards on the drive that culminated in Lynch's 3-yard TD run.

Seahawks surprises

• Peterson ran 74 yards on his second carry, the longest run allowed by any Seattle team since September 2009.

• The Seahawks did not commit a turnover for the first time in six games. Seattle has committed two turnovers in four home games this season and 11 in five road games.

By the numbers

249 Streak of consecutive point-after kicks snapped when Steven Hauschka's third attempt of the game was blocked by Minnesota's Kevin Williams.

84.9 Yards rushing the Seahawks allowed the first eight games.

80 Yards rushing by Peterson on Minnesota's first possession.

55 Yard field goal by Vikings' Blair Walsh in the third quarter, matching longest kick made in stadium history.


Vikings: WR Percy Harvin suffered an ankle injury in the third quarter, but returned to the game. Seahawks: LB K.J. Wright left the game after suffering a concussion in the first quarter. Center Max Unger left in the third quarter because of a dislocated finger, but returned.


"It was the kind of day that we needed to start the second half. We put a lot of pressure on our guys to play well today and to get things done and get this thing going." — Seahawks coach Pete Carroll
