Peterson finishes the season with 1,266 yards and 10 touchdowns. The Vikings are also without backup running back Toby Gerhart, who is out with a hamstring injury.  They will turn to Matt Asiata for the 2013 finale.

The Minnesota Vikings (4-10-1) play the Detroit Lions (8-7) tomorrow at 1:00 pm EST at the Mall of America Stadium in Minnesota.  Both teams have already been eliminated from playoff contention.
