MINNEAPOLIS (AP) _ The Minnesota Vikings slowed down the San
Diego Chargers with a 35-17 win. The Vikings got the win despite a
record setting touchdown by San Diego's Antonio Cromartie. He
returned a missed field goal 109 yards for a touchdown. That's the
longest play in NFL history.
Minnesota's Ryan Longwell fell just short of a 57-yard field
goal and Cromartie grabbed the ball at the end line. He raced up
the right sideline, got some good blocks and scored untouched near
the end of the second quarter.
Minnesota rookie Adrian Peterson also had a big game as he set a
league record in his eighth game as a pro. Peterson rushed for 296
yards, becoming the first rookie to have two 200 yard games in his
debut season, as the Vikings upped their record to 3-and-5. The
loss drops the Chargers to 4-and-4.
