As the Vikings prepare for their final game at the Metrodome, ESPN.com Vikings reporter Ben Goessling looks back at some of the stadium's most memorable games. On the final day of the 2012 regular season, the Vikings need a win to finish 10-6 and claim the NFC's final playoff spot. Adrian Peterson needs 208 yards to break Eric Dickerson's single-season rushing record. He finishes with 199, ending the year with 2,097 yards, but his final run sets up Blair Walsh's game-winning field goal, giving the Vikings a 37-34 victory over the Packers in one of the wildest games between the two rivals in Metrodome history.
