    Record Setting: AP

    RB Adrian Peterson has already broken/tied numerous NFL and
    team records in only 8 games as a Viking and is pushing to break several
    more. In Week 9 vs. San Diego, Peterson broke the NFL record for
    the most rushing yards in a single game when he rushed for 296
    yards and 3 scores against the Chargers.
    That performance shattered his previous record-setting feat three
    weeks earlier at Chicago when he broke the Vikings record for rushing
    yards in a single game with 224; the previous record was held by Chuck
    Foreman (200). Peterson also tied a team record vs. San Diego and
    at Chicago with his 3 rushing TDs in each game, only the 10th and
    11th times it has happened in Vikings’ history. He also set a Vikings
    record as the fi rst player to have 2 runs of 50+ in a game when he rushed
    for a 73-yard TD and a 62-yard TD.

    Simply Amazing. 8 games into this young kid's career, and when you sit back and look at what he's accomplished already... it's really staggering. Cheers... here's to at least 5 more years of this!!!

    AD being helped off the field with a possible knee injury.


    Not to pour salt on any wounds here...
    I just want to make the point here that this is the reason why he was passed down to slot 7.

    He went down with a thigh bruse, and Childress even said he was running up and down the sideline and was ready to go back in.
    So I don't really think this is one of those injury worries, happens to anyone.

    And his knee was a problem in college?

    Newsflash:
    anyone who takes a shot to the knee like that is going to get hurt.

    Go back to watching your Cowboys and salivating over Roy.
