Adrian Peterson Breaks NFL Record For Rushing Yards In A Game

by

Adrian Peterson was simply spectacular. He ran with extreme conviction, burst and elusiveness, gashing an excellent San Diego run defense that consistently brought extra defenders down near the line of scrimmage. And the first tackler rarely brought Peterson to the ground. His performance opened up the 40-yard touchdown pass from Brooks Bollinger to Sidney Rice that gave Minnesota a lead it would never relinquish. The Vikings’ offensive line, especially the left side, was very impressive, considering that Minnesota’s passing game is anemic and every last person in the stadium knew Peterson would be getting the ball over and over again. It didn’t matter, though. Peterson still had a record-setting day.

    Some may suggest that the torch was passed from Tomlinson to Peterson yesterday as the new sheriff in town.
    1036 yards in 8 games is very impressive.
