After a weekend of great performances, one of them that really sticks out is the play of Vikings RB, Adrian Peterson. His 171 rushing yards and one touchdown on 27 carries helped propel Minnesota to their 6th win of the season.
Listen to this 4th quarter stat line: 11 carries, 120 rushing yards and the touchdown.
This is all being done after a 182 rushing yard, two touchdown performance last week against the stingy Seattle Seahawks defense. What Peterson is doing less than a year after tearing his MCL and ACL is absolutely incredible. It normally takes nearly two years for players to come back, much less play at a high level at one of the most taxing positions in football.
Peterson isn’t all football though. He has a story like everyone else. ESPN E:60 put together this video about Peterson, which tells a whole new story about the Minnesota star. Enjoy.
