Record-seekers vs. Rams

The Vikings moved up in a couple of team milestones, Jared Allen had a first, Brett Favre tied a couple of team marks and Adrian Peterson continues to move up on franchise lists. See all the movers and shakers from Sunday's win over the Rams.


  • The Vikings have now won six consecutive road games, one short of the team record, set twice from Dec. 13, 1970 to Nov. 21, 1971 and from Sept. 23, 1973 to Nov. 11, 1974.

  • The Vikings won their 400th regular-season game in team history. Their current all-time record is 400-322-9 and they became the 15th franchise in NFL history to win 400 games.

  • Jared Allen's 52-yard opponent fumble return for a touchdown is the longest versus the Rams in the series history and the 11th longest in team history. This is Allen's first defensive touchdown in the NFL and his first touchdown as a Viking. Dwayne Rudd holds the Vikings record for longest rumble return for a touchdown with a 94-yarder against Chicago on Dec. 6, 1998.

  • Adrian Peterson became the 16th Viking to reach 4,000 career scrimmage yards.

  • Peterson's two rushing touchdowns give him 29 for his career, moving him into a fifth-place tie on the all-time franchise list. He is tied with Dave Osborn and Daunte Culpepper. Still ahead of Peterson are Robert Smith (32), Ted Brown (40), Bill Brown (52) and Chuck Foreman (52).

  • Brett Favre caught his first pass as a Viking. He becomes only the sixth QB in franchise history to catch a pass. It was Favre's second career reception. His first was with Green Bay vs. Tampa Bay on Sept, 13, 1992 for minus-7 yards.

  • Favre tied a team record for most games in a season with a completion percentage of 75 or higher. Both Favre and Rich Gannon (1992) have three such performances in a season.

  • Favre also tied a team record with two consecutive games in a season with a completion percentage of 75 or higher, joining Gannon's 1992 string and Culpepper's November 2000 stretch in back-to-back games.
