Vikings RB Matt Asiata scores three TDs

Undrafted in 2011, Vikings running back Matt Asiata entered Week 15 with only three carries and none of them came this season.

Not only did he get many more carries than that today, but he finished the game with as many touchdowns as he previously had carries. Asiata carried the ball 30 times for 51 yards, but he scored three times.

In addition, he added three receptions for 15 yards.

Of all the running backs to play through the 4 p.m. games today, Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles is the only one to score more fantasy points than Asiata.

Early indications are that Adrian Peterson (foot) will be ready to go next week against the Bengals.
