BALTIMORE - Vikings star running back Adrian Peterson left the game early in the second quarter Sunday after suffering an ankle injury.

Report: Steelers will lose draft pick (The SportsXchange)
The Pittsburgh Steelers will lose a 2014 late-round draft pick because coach Mike Tomlin interfered with a play in progress during the Nov. 28 game against the Baltimore Ravens, CBS Sports reported Sunday. The NFL will decide the exact nature of the draft choice after all compensatory picks are sent this spring. The NFL said in its statement announcing the fine that Tomlin should have been penalized 15 yards for unsportsmanlike conduct. After Pittsburgh scored to close to 13-7, Baltimore returner Jacoby Jones broke free down the sideline on the ensuing kickoff but slowed up with Tomlin on the white stripe near the field of play -- with his foot on the field at one point as Jones neared his location.
Throwing Darts: Baltimore at home, that’s so Raven (Roto Arcade)
Twenty more darts to throw in the 2013 season; let's try to finish strong. -- Ravens -6.5 vs. Vikings: Baltimore's defense has rallied nicely since the opening-week shellacking in Denver, and the Ravens also enjoy a notable home-field advantage. Minnesota's rushing defense is in a funk and everyone throws on them. Blowout potential here. -- Rams +6.5 at Cardinals: The pesky Rams come to play, in chippy fashion, just about every week. Carson Palmer has some snappy fantasy numbers of late, but he's still capable of throwing games away - or keeping them competitive - on any given Sunday.
Fantasy Fix Week 14: Flacco's time, weather permitting (Comcast SportsNet Mid Atlantic)
Whether the expected inclement weather messes with the game conditions or not, owners should consider Torrey Smith a borderline WR1 this week. Thank the Vikings brutal pass defense that automatic designation; Minnesota ranks 31st against fantasy wide receivers, having allowed at least one score to a WR in 11 straight games. Last week, Chicago's Alshon Jeffery destroyed the Vikings.
