Bears vs. Vikings: Full Roster Report Card Grades for Minnesota

Running back Adrian Peterson led the Minnesota Vikings to victory with 211 rushing yards.

The Minnesota Vikings' 23-20 overtime win over the Chicago Bears was certainly a roller-coaster ride there at the end. First, the Vikings win the game with a 39-yard field goal by kicker Blair Walsh, but a personal foul negated the play and pushed the Vikings back 15 yards. 

Then the Bears had a shot to win the game when kicker Robbie Gould lined up for a 47-yard field goal. Coming into the game, Gould was a perfect 5-of-5 on field goals between 40 and 49 yards. He had made all seven attempts greater than 40 yards this season. This time, his attempt missed wide right. 

It gave the Vikings another shot, and Adrian Peterson was not going to let it escape the Vikings again. He gained 30 of his 211 yards on the Vikings' final drive. A drive that ended with a 34-yard, game-winning field goal by Walsh. 

The win gives the Vikings a 3-8-1 record and prevents them from losing as many games as they did in 2011.

After finishing with a tie against the Packers last week, the Vikings found a way to pull out the win.

There were some great performances for the Vikings as they came back from a 10-point deficit in the fourth quarter. 

Here are the full roster grades for the Vikings.
