Three legs, two records and one win for the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday in St. Louis.

The Vikings defeated the Rams 36-22 to improve to 8-6 and stay in the thick of things in the NFC playoff hunt.

Peterson rushed for 212 yards, including an 82-yard touchdown, to extend his team record streak of 100-yard rushing games to eight. Peterson is now just 294 yards short of Eric Dickerson's single season rushing mark.

The Vikings will travel to Houston in another crucial road game next Sunday.
