    SEATTLE --?Seattle Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett was on the receiving end of a cut block by Atlanta Falcons left tackle Jake Matthews, and he suffered a right knee injury in the third quarter of Sundays game.Afterward, Bennett took exception with Matthews.If youre big in the NFL, you just line up and play, Bennett said. Why do you have to cut somebody on the f---ing play?That s--- is just stupid. Why cut somebody when you can just line up and win? I mean, I dont know. I dont come off the ball jumping at offensive linemens legs.The play Bennett described occurred in the third quarter, when Matt Ryan found Mohamed Sanu for a 10-yard touchdown. Bennett went to the ground and clutched the back of his right knee. He went into the locker room and did not return.Bennett said afterward that the knee injury is nothing major, and he should be able to play next week.Added Pete Carroll, A little sore, but we think hes OK. A little sore knee. Well see what happens here in the next couple days.

MINNEAPOLIS -- The Minnesota Vikings have leaned on their ferocious, fiery defense all season long to hang around the playoff field in the NFC.When they needed them most, they were nowhere to be found.Andrew Luck threw for 250 yards and two touchdowns, shredding the leagues second-ranked defense in the Indianapolis Colts 34-6 victory over the Vikings on Sunday.The Vikings (7-7) believed they needed to win the final three games of the season to make the playoffs. But they gave up 411 yards, 101 yards rushing to Frank Gore and allowed the Colts to convert 54 percent of their third downs in a backbreaking loss.There was a lot at stake -- make the playoffs, make this push to get to our ultimate goal, Vikings cornerback Captain Munnerlyn said. To lay an egg like this, Im at a loss for words. I dont know.The Vikings ranked second in the NFL in yards and points allowed and had made star quarterbacks Aaron Rodgers, Cam Newton, Eli Manning and Matthew Stafford look ordinary with their relentless, attacking scheme.But Luck completed 21 of 28 passes and the Colts led 27-0 at halftime. Twice they drove at least 88 yards for touchdowns, one that ended with a 50-yard strike from Luck to Phillip Dorsett to start the fourth quarter.Its a really, really good defense and we managed to come out on the positive end more often than not, Luck said. Weve done a decent job in backed-up situations all year so we were glad to get those drives again.The most glaring moment came in the second quarter when Robert Turbin broke four tackles -- two from standout defensive end Everson Griffen -- on a 6-yard touchdown run that was his second of the game. The boos came raining down, and Munnerlyn couldnt blame them.I felt like we came out lackadaisical like we were just going to get this win, Munnerlyn said. Like theyre going to read the names and look at the stats and theyre going to lay down for us. It didnt work like that.Here are some other important notes from the game:PETERSONS RETURNVikings running back Adrian Peterson returned after missing the previous 11 games while recovering from a torn meniscus in his right knee. His comeback came one week sooner than he expected after a good week of practice, but he only managed 22 yards on six carries.The former MVP rushed for just 50 yards in the first two games of the season before getting injured and was no more effective against the Colts.His fumble in Colts territory inn the second quarter came after his only decent run of the day, a 13-yard burst.dddddddddddd He played sparingly in the second half.Definitely not what I envisioned coming into this game, Peterson said. Its unfortunate that it ended the way it did.COLTS O-LINE ROLLSWith two regular starters along the offensive line out of the game, Indianapolis didnt allow a sack for the first time all season and rushed for 161 yards.Jonotthan Harrison started at left guard. Joe Haeg moved to right guard and LaRaven Clark entered the starting lineup at right tackle.Indianapolis had allowed 31 sacks in the first eight games. The line has given up just nine in the past six games.I think I told someone last night during our production meeting that `you will be pleasantly surprised with how these guys play, Luck said. They work their butts off. They do everything right and it was really, really good to see it all come together today.MORE FOR MATHISRobert Mathis continues to prove hes one of the leagues top pass rushers. In his 14th season, Mathis got his 122nd sack and 51st forced fumble.Mathis surpassed Clyde Simmons and tied Simeon Rice for the 18th on the leagues career sack list. Mathis blew past Minnesota left tackle T.J. Clemmings and stripped quarterback Sam Bradford on the opening drive of the third quarter.Us pass rushers, frontline guys, you have to affect the quarterback, Mathis said.LINE SHUFFLEVikings center Joe Berger missed the two previous games with a concussion, but returned to play on Sunday. With right guard Joe Berger out with a concussion, Berger moved over to fill his place and Nick Easton started his third straight game at center.VIKINGS MISTAKESThe Vikings had stopped the Colts near the goal line in the first quarter after Munnerlyn broke up a pass intended for T.Y. Hilton. Adam Vinatieri was lining up for his second field goal try of the day, a chip shot that would have made it 6-0.But Vikings defensive tackle Linval Joseph tried to jump over long snapper Matt Overton to block it. That is illegal in the NFL, and the penalty gave the Colts a fresh set of downs.Turbin plowed in two plays later for a 10-0 lead.The Vikings committed six penalties and three turnovers in the game.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL ' ' '
