Simply put, Adrian Peterson is a beast.
Although the Vikings were handed their seventh loss of the season on Sunday, AP came away with the play of the game.
Down by three with just under six minutes to play in the fourth quarter, the Vikings star put the team on his back — along with a couple of Cowboys players — and grinded out an unbelievable 11-yard touchdown run.
On fourth-and-inches, Peterson took the carry, only to be wrapped up by a couple of Dallas defenders around the five-yard line. While the play looked doomed, Peterson stayed on his feet, and with the help of tight end Chase Ford pulling him up, the running back managed to power his way into the end zone, dragging three Cowboys in with him.
Check out the remarkable run in the GIF below with a fist bump to SB Nation.

BEST OF MAXIM
Adrian Peterson scored on a touchdown run Sunday that will earn a permanent place on his career highlight reel. The Minnesota Vikings were down 20-17 to the Dallas Cowboys with six minutes left in the game. They had the ball on the 11 and 4th-and-inches and did what any sane coach would do — hand […]
Adrian Peterson is the best running back in the NFL. There is no questioning that; it's just a shame that he is stuck on a team that is not likely going to go anywhere anytime soon (deja vu Barry Sanders). That doesn't mean he isn't going to try and do his best to carry the team and anyone else that wants to go for a ride.
...like he did Sunday against the Cowboys...
Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson carried the Dallas Cowboys on his back for a touchdown on Sunday. Here's a GIF of him in beast mode.
The Vikings handed off to Adrian Peterson 25 times Sunday at Dallas after giving him just 36 carries the previous three games combined.Fantasy Spin:Peterson had at least 15 carries in every game last season, but the team did not give it to him more than 13 times in any of the last three. He turned 25 carries in 140 yards and a touchdown and had 37 receiving yards in Week 9 against the Cowboys.
Adrian Peterson is a beast, the Minnesota Vikings aren't very good, so he has to do it himself.
Here are some Fantasy Revelations from a hectic and high-scoring NFL Week 9:
1. Nick Foles (406 yards passing, seven TDs) has certainly earned a fantasy start for Week 10 against the Packers assuming he draws a real-world QB start for the Eagles.
But here's something to chew on before moving heaven and earth to acquire Foles this week: In the games immediately following their...
Minnesota Vikings defensive coordinator Alan Williams is being questioned for his conservative strategy late in Sunday’s 27-23 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. Williams dropped a defender into coverage while having only three pass rushers attack Dallas quarterback Tony Romo, whom was pressured by the Vikings for most of the day. Romo dissected Minnesota’s defense on a nine-play, 90...
Adrian Peterson knows there are situations when the Vikings have to get away from passing the ball, but he was glad they got to making him a featured part of the offense after an unprecedented three-game streak of less than 15 carries each game.
What’s the key to winning in week 9?
Step 1) Don’t turn over the ball
Step 2) Stop Adrian Peterson
Step 3) Don’t turn the ball over!!!
There are certain players that are just going to get theirs whenever they step on the field. AP is just one of those guys. What can we say, he’s from Texas, and we just trained him too well. As we sit here and marvel...
Adrian Peterson hasn’t exceeded 13 carries or 62 yards in the past 3 weeks. Is it time to be a little bit concerned? If the season ended today, would he still be your number one pick in next year’s draft?
I think it’s obvious owners need to be concerned. With no threat in the passing game, Peterson has become fairly easy to stop. With that said, the run...
Tony Romo was 90 yards from the end zone, trailing one-win Minnesota by a field goal with another late-game interception fresh on his mind.
The Dallas quarterback found a way to spoil the homecoming for Adrian Peterson and Christian Ponder.
Romo threw for 337 yards and two touchdowns, including the go-ahead score to Dwayne Harris with 35 seconds left to answer a touchdown by Peterson...
The Minnesota Vikings will take the field Sunday with a roster full of injuries. Week 9 brings quarterback Christian Ponder back to the helm, even now that Josh Freeman has recovered from his concussion. Freeman will be the backup and Matt Cassel will become the emergency number three QB.
The inactives for the Vikings will include running back Matt Asiata (shoulder), tight end Rhett...
The Vikings-Cowboys game on Sunday was more reminiscent of the first three games of the season, where the Vikings were competitive, but the defense could not make stops when it needed to in the 4th quarter. These type of games, although frustrating, are much more entertaining to watch than the previous three where the Vikings were simply dominated from start to finish. At the end...
Who would have guessed that after a CLUTCH touchdown by all star Running Back Adrian Peterson that Blair Walsh would be the one to choke. After a much needed 6 points that put the Vikings ahead of the Cowboys with 6 minutes remaining in the 4th quarter, Vikings Kicker Blair Walsh, who is regarded as one of the NFL’s best Kickers, would totally beef it on the extra point?
