Who needs a QB when you have Adrian Peterson? Well, at 1-4 the Vikings apparently do, but Peterson's three TDs in the first 12 1/2 minutes of Minnesota's game against the Cardinals made sure to build a lead that could not be lost. The defense held its own by forcing four turnovers and four sacks. After watching what Jahvid Best did to the Bears, Peterson must be salivating at this week's game. —Tony Markovich
