By the numbers: 3 super stats from Vikings-Lions game

We won't get too geeky on you, but here are three freaky numbers from the Vikings-Lions tilt from the Metrodome Sunday afternoon.

MINNEAPOLIS -- Regarding the Vikings-Lions game, when it comes to numbers-behind-the-numbers -- chew on these three:

11

That's the Lion's third-down efficiency for the day: 11 percent. Detroit was 1-9 on third down as the Vikings' defense had solid stops against Matthew Stafford and Co. when it counted.

118

Who was the 118th overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft? That would be rookie wide receiver Jarius Wright out of the University of Arkansas. The 5-foot-1o-inch, 180-pound speedster set up the Vikings first touchdown by catching a 54-yard strike from Christian Ponder.

1,128

That's how many rushing yards Adrian Peterson has through 10 games. Earlier this week, the talk was if AP should be considered a "comeback player of the year" candidate. Maybe. But he's more of an MVP candidate than anything else.
