Vikings RB Adrian Peterson said the situation with his son was not a factor Monday and he "came in focused.'' He did admit, though, that his hamstring was "tight at times'' against the Giants.
"It was definitely tough sledding,'' Peterson said of Monday's loss. "We were just kind of out of whack. Those guys were bringing some stunts, doing a lot of movement up front. Nothing we haven't seen before, but it kind of put us in an uncomfortable position and we struggled with that all night.''
Couple a tight hammy with poor QB play and it's going to equal a sub-par performance for Peterson in terms of fantasy numbers. Next week the Vikings take on Green Bay.
