Vikings running back Adrian Peterson, who is having an MVP-caliber season, now finds himself in coach Leslie Frazier's doghouse after arriving late to Soldier Field on Sunday

Peterson left the Vikings hotel in a cab at 10 a.m., after missing the team bus. Players were supposed to be at the stadium by 10 a.m. He arrived at 10:23 a.m., just over an hour and a half before kickoff. Peterson’s reason for arriving late is unknown.

Coach Leslie Frazier said "there is something that Adrian and I need to talk about regarding getting to the stadium."
