Fargo, ND (WDAY TV)-- Friday night against Buffalo, Christian Ponder was sacked on the very first play and it seemed to go downhill from there from botched snaps to dropped passes.

But, this Sunday, the MVP gets back in the mix.

Adrian Peterson will play against San Francisco in the nationally televised night game and hopefully provide that jolt the team needs.

"Without Adrian Peterson in our scheme it impacts our offense tremendously, because it's the focal point. So, yeah, it definitely makes a difference. That will be obvious when we open the season. It's obvious if you look at us from a season ago and it showed up on Friday night."
