went through a big puddle

o boy here we go again. so it started with going through a puddle that was actually a lot deeper then it looked (who would of guessed that it would of been outside of my auto parts place ), and it ended stalling my engine. the car started right up after that, it turns out that the airfilter had gotten completely soaked. i replaced that and then after letting everything dry out the CEL light came on. i ran the codes and its reading the MAF sensor, o2 sesnor adaption limit. i did however have to drive a few miles before i could change the air filter, so what im trying to ask is could those codes just be from the o2 sensors trying to adapt to the lack of air coming in due to the wet air filter and the MAF sensor code be related. hope someone can figure out what im asking, any questions let me no.

id try cleaning out your MAF sensor... could be that you sucked up some junk and now it's having trouble reading a solid code and your o2 sensor isnt on the right path because of that...
