JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Minnesota Vikings had a 14-point lead before many fans at Jacksonville Municipal Stadium even settled into their seats.Those late arrivers could have saved a few hours by turning around and heading home.With the league's leading rusher, one of the league's best defenses and facing the mistake-prone Jaguars, the Vikings had this one wrapped up shortly after it began.
• The Vikings have won three of their last four games, improving to 3-1 all-time against the Jags along the way.
• Adrian Peterson's rushing TD was his fifth in his last five games.
• This was the fourth game in NFL history to end with a 30-12 final score, but just the second since the end of World War II when the Cardinals beat the Oilers on Dec. 4, 1994.

Jags WR Matt Jones said his appeal of a three-game suspension will be heard Dec. 4 in New York.
