>Streaks and stats

*Down 17-0 at halftime, the Patriots had their largest comeback from a second-half deficit since Nov. 10, 2002, when they beat the Chicago Bears, 33-30, after trailing 27-6 in the third quarter.

*Washington has lost six straight at home, its longest such skid since 1994.

*The Chiefs' Ryan Succop hit his 22nd straight field goal, matching Pete Stoyanovich's franchise record.



*Vikings star running back Adrian Peterson hurt his left knee on the first offensive play of the second half of a 33-26 victory over the Washington Redskins and feared it could be serious. The X-rays were negative, but Peterson was scheduled for an MRI late Saturday after the team returned to Minnesota. A torn ACL, the worst case scenario, would likely sideline Peterson for some nine months. On the play after Peterson was hurt, quarterback Christian Ponder suffered a head injury when he was sacked by Adam Carriker and London Fletcher. His prognosis was not known.
