Dream Year Gets Better for Vikings RB Adrian Peterson
First he breaks the single game rushing season in his rookie year. Second, it looks like his team is headed to the playoffs. Third, he’s the leading rusher in the NFC, third in the NFL after missing 2 games because of a sore knee. And finally fourth, he’s named starting running back for the NFC and their pro-bowl roster. What a year. You think the teams that passed up on him feel stupid? Well if they haven’t yet, now would be a good time. The Minnesota Vikings control their own playoff destiny and have to beat Washington at home and then head to Denver for the finale. Their quarterback is peaking at the right time and their coach has wised up to the fact that he has the best running back in the league. I’m not saying their gonna beat the Patriots, but with a two headed monster of Peterson and Chester Taylor, don’t be surprised if this team is representing the NFC in the Superbowl. By the way, add a fifth as this guy is a shoe-in to win the rookie of the year award.
