    League Leader: AP

    Vikings 1st-round draft pick RB Adrian Peterson
    currently leads the NFL with 1,036 rushing
    yards, 310 yards more than the 2nd-leading
    rusher, Pittsburgh RB Willie Parker (726 yards)
    despite having 6 fewer carries (Parker plays tonight
    on Monday Night Football). Peterson’s 8
    rushing TDs and his 6.6-yard average also top
    the league list.
    In Week 9 vs. San Diego, Peterson broke
    the NFL record for the most rushing yards in
    a single game when he broke loose for 296 yards on the ground
    against the Chargers. He also tied a team record with his 3 rushing
    TDs, only the 11th time it had happened in team history, with the last time
    coming at Chicago earlier this season as Peterson rushed for 224 yards
    and 3 TDs.
    Peterson exploded on to the NFL scene in the 2007 opener against
    Atlanta when he rushed 19 times for 103 yards and turned a screen play
    into a 60-yard touchdown. With the 103 rushing yards, Peterson set a
    new team record for the most yards rushing in the fi rst NFL game. He
    also became only the 3rd Vikings player to gain 100 yards rushing in his
    fi rst game as a Viking.
    The following are categories in which Peterson is among the leagueleaders:
