This wasn’t a pretty win but once again veteran QB Jeff Garcia led the offense to enough points and the defense came up with the plays when it needed to including holding NFL rushing leader Adrian Peterson to under 100 yards.   "It would be scary to see where we'd be without the help of that defense of ours," Garcia said. "They've pulled us out so many times this year."
