Four things we're talking about after the Minnesota Vikings' 27-10 win over the Detroit Lions on Sunday:

Keep gadget plays on the 'maybe' list

Vikings turn the ball over in first quarter when Adrian Peterson tries to pitch a reverse play to Percy Harvin. Minnesota was at its best when it kept things basic on offense.

Solid day for Peterson
