Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson needs 208 yards against the Green Bay Packers to break Eric Dickerson's NFL record of 2,105 yards.  Packers players said they respect and admire Peterson, but don't want him to break the record against them.  With one game left Peterson will have to run like he did Dec. 2 against the Packers at Lambeau Field, 210 rushing yards. "If anybody deserves to get the record, it's definitely AP. No doubt about it," said Packers cornerback Tramon Williams. "But unfortunately, they're playing us. We want to put our best foot forward. It's going to be a tough task. We know that already." "Oh man, he is a great running back. I can't think of anyone better," said Packers running back DuJuan Harris. "He's been working, he just got back from the injury and that's a great feat for him to accomplish - after that kind of injury." The Packers are playing for the NFC's No. 2 playoff seed and a first-round bye.   He's a great guy. I've gotten to know him outside of football," said Packers linebacker Clay Matthews. "You'd love to see a guy who has worked so hard and has overcome so much to win that crown - but ultimately that is against our defense. I don't think any of us want to see that happen. We'll do our best to try and contain him. He's a fantastic guy, he'll make his plays, but let's hope we don't give up 200 yards again to him."
