NEW YORK (AP) - Comments on the Minnesota Vikings by the AP Pro32 panel (ranking in parentheses):

---

MINNESOTA VIKINGS (10)

Chris Berman (ESPN, 10) - Congrats to Adrian Peterson on an amazing game and season. Congrats to the Vikings on going from three wins to 10.

Clifton Brown (Sporting News, 9) - The remarkable Adrian Peterson gets another crack at the Packers.

Cris Collinsworth (NBC Sports, 11)

Rich Gannon (CBS Sports/SiriusXM NFL Radio, 11) - Can Adrian Peterson do it again on a short week against the Packers? Charles Woodson back for GB is huge because he's their best tackler.

Bob Glauber (Newsday, 8) - Adrian Peterson with one of the greatest comebacks ever, and nearly breaks Eric Dickerson's record on the way to clinching a playoff berth for the Vikes. A mind-boggling season after ACL surgery.

Rick Gosselin (Dallas Morning News, 12) - Adrian Peterson finished nine yards short of the NFL single-season rushing record but couldn't have drawn a more favorable opponent in the playoffs than the Packers. He rushed for 210 and 199 yards in his two games against them this season.

Clark Judge (CBSSports.com, 9) - Now starring in the Miracle Worker, Part II: Adrian Peterson and Leslie Frazier.

Ira Kaufman (Tampa Tribune, 11) - It will be challenging for Christian Ponder to keep his cool at frosty Lambeau.

Pat Kirwan (SiriusXM NFL Radio/CBSSports.com, 10) - Adrian Peterson ran his team into the playoffs which many thought couldn't be done. The defense is underrated and rookie kicker, Blair Walsh is a great weapon.

John Lynch (Fox Sports, 12) - AP continues to amaze! Can they go into Lambeau and repeat their magical victory from last week?

Alex Marvez (Foxsports.com, 9) - Adrian Peterson finished 9 yards short of breaking Eric Dickerson's single-season rushing record, but leading Minnesota into the playoffs is a nice consolation prize.

Dan Pompei (Chicago Tribune, 6) - If Christian Ponder plays like he did Sunday in the playoffs, the Vikings can go all the way.
