Record-seekers vs. Lions
GAME NOTES vs. LIONS
Gus Frerotte's 86-yard touchdown pass to Bernard Berrian was the second-longest pass play in team history, falling four yards short of Charley Ferguson's 89-yard touchdown from Fran Tarkenton in 1962.
Berrian becomes the first Viking to gain 100 yards receiving on back-to-back games since Nate Burleson did it in December 2004.
Kevin Williams' four sacks were the most since Chris Doleman's four against Cincinnati in 1989. Randy Holloway holds the team record with five against Atlanta in 1984.
Jared Allen's safety was the Vikings' 38th in team history. Of those 38, seven have been against the Lions, the most of any opponent.
Adrian Peterson's 100-yard game rushing gives him a career total of nine, which ties him with Michael Bennett and Bill Brown for third place in team history. Robert Smith has 29 100-yard games and Chuck Foreman has 17.
Ryan Longwell moves into third place in team history for most game-winning field goals in a Vikings career. Fred Cox (1963-77) holds the franchise record with nine and Fuad Reveiz (1990-95) is second with seven.
Gus Frerotte becomes the 73rd quarterback in NFL history to get 40 wins in games started. He improved to 40-45-1 (5-1 with the Vikings) with Sunday's win.
Since 1998, the Vikings are 18-3-0 against the Lions, 11-0 at home.
