You stay classy, Adrian Peterson, Ravens fans

Vikings RB Adrian Peterson reacts harshly about officiating, Ravens fans in his team's 29-26 loss to Baltimore.

I'll assume responsibility if this is not, in fact, Vikings running back Adrian Peterson, but everything about it seems to have come from his account.

Clearly, there's a bit of frustration coming from Peterson, he suffered an injury during the game and was unable to return. On top of that, the ending of the Ravens/Vikings game had to be one of the most chaotic in recent history. An incredible five touchdowns were scored between the two teams in the final 2:05 of the game. Baltimore escaped despite dismal performances from quarterback Joe Flacco, and a complete meltdown from its defense in the final two minutes.

That meltdown was topped only by Minnesota's defense, while they were subject to a questionable pass interference call on Vikings linebacker Chad Greenway after safety Andrew Sendejo - it would have been Flacco's fourth interception of the game and Sendejo's second.

The Ravens exploited the penalty, and Flacco hit Marlon Brown on a nine-yard touchdown pass for the game-winner.

Peterson's frankness will be a lightning rod for fans across the league, as Cleveland blew a 19-3 lead in the second half of their game at New England. Browns fans will cry afoul of a pass interference call in that game as well.

He tweeted a follow-up later, describing the projectiles hurled at him from the stands.

No word on whether Josh Gordon will tweet anything of a similar nature.
