    Red zone remains a test for Adrian Peterson

    [size=13pt]Red zone remains a test for A.D. [/size]

    Adrian Peterson’s nickname is “All Day,” but his day often ends when the Vikings get near the goal line. Maybe that’s because the Vikings running back hasn’t been as successful as one might think in that area....

    Re: Red zone remains a test for Adrian Peterson

    In his two years in the NFL, Peterson has carried the ball just 12 times inside the opposition’s 5-yard line. The good news is that he has scored on seven of those 12 attempts, but all but one have been from one yard out. The bad news is that he has just two yards total in his career on carries inside the 5-yard line
    Good example of the author spewing stats without reading what he's saying. Also, nice touch on putting in the word "career" to over emphasize his perception of AD's red zone production vs. the 12 attempts he used earlier.

    A sniffer would have changed this paragraph around to say that AD has scored approximately 60% of the time he has been given the ball inside the 5 or better yet,
    AD has only failed to convert 5 times in his entire career when given the ball inside the 5.

    Goofy written article, however, he does have a point that with AD in the line up in the past few seasons, teams sell out against him, this is especially true on goal line situations.
