Calgary Herald - - SPORTS -

Adrian Pe­ter­son ran for 120 yards and a pair of two-yard scores, Alex Smith threw two touch­down passes — all in the first half — and Wash­ing­ton held on over a gimpy Aaron Rodgers and the Pack­ers, who again had com­plaints about a rough­ing-the-passer penalty on Clay Matthews. On a rainy af­ter­noon, Wash­ing­ton (2-1) moved out to leads of 14-0 and, at half­time, 28-10, by putting to­gether TD drives of 74, 75, 79 and 98 yards. Smith con­nected for TDs of 46 yards to Paul Richard­son on the game’s fourth play and of nine yards to Jami­son Crow­der in the sec­ond quar­ter. Pe­ter­son raised his ca­reer to­tal to 102 rush­ing touch­downs, mov­ing him alone into sev­enth place in NFL his­tory.
