Adrian Petersonâ€™s nickname is â€œAll Day,â€ but his day often ends when the Vikings get near the goal line. Maybe thatâ€™s because the Vikings running back hasnâ€™t been as successful as one might think in that area....

Re: Red zone remains a test for Adrian PetersonIn his two years in the NFL, Peterson has carried the ball just 12 times inside the oppositionâ€™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
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.
