Packers fans aren’t going to let Adrian Peterson forget just how close he was to breaking Eric Dickerson’s record. Nine yards short. That’s it. This banner was spotted by KARE-11 (Minneapolis-St.Paul) reporter Keith Leventhal at a Packers bar earlier today.
It’s been making the rounds on the internet today and new developments are surfacing that Peterson himself might be seeing the banner:
Minneapolis’ FOX affiliate caught wind of the story and it appears they will be running a story on the bar/banner during the 5:00 p.m. local news. They’ll be reporting live from Lambeau Field so if any Packers fans want to make an appearance, head on down.
The Vikings head to Lambeau on Saturday night (8:00 p.m., NBC) for their NFC Wild Card match-up.
BONUS: Angry Vikings fan tweets threatening to tear the bar down.
