All eyes will be on Adrian Peterson during this game. After the tragic story of his son getting killed, he will be playing football with a heavy heart. How will he respond on Sunday? The Vikings still are unsure on who to use at quarterback at this time. They just signed Josh Freeman, their original starter is just getting healthy and Matt Cassel is the current starter for this game.

Panthers Player to Watch: Steve Smith
Smitty is one of the most explosive receivers in the game. He has had a field day against the Vikings defenders in the past. In his last 6 games against the Vikinds, he has caught 37 passes for 625 yards and 4 scores. He will be looking to add to those numbers this weekend.

Matchup to Watch: Adrian Peterson vs Panthers Defense
I wouldn’t want to get in the way of this man on Sunday. He will be running with a full head of steam and will be running with all kinds of inspiration and motivation for his son.
I can’t see Adrian Peterson letting his team lose this game. I can’t see the Vikings losing this game for Peterson. The team will be playing some inspired football.
