EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) - Adrian Peterson rushed for 210 yards at Green Bay the first time. He gained 199 yards for Minnesota in the last meeting.

So how much more can the Vikings star do? Will the Packers be able to finally stop him?

That's arguably the main issue at stake for Saturday's playoff game at Lambeau Field, when the Vikings and Packers will play in the wild card round. Peterson carried the Vikings into the postseason with another standout performance, even though the Packers continually sent a safety up to the line to try to slow him.

The Vikings haven't won an outdoor game this year, but their formula for winning is designed to work in winter weather.
