EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. Adrian Peterson's spot in the Pro Bowl was never in doubt, just another footnote in his remarkable recovery from knee surgery. Wednesday, three of Peterson's teammates discovered they would be joining him.
The NFL announced the initial rosters for the Pro Bowl to be played in Honolulu on Jan. 17, 2013 and the Minnesota Vikings had four players selected, with defensive end Jared Allen, fullback Jerome Felton and kicker Blair Walsh joining Peterson on the NFC squad.
Peterson's fifth Pro Bowl nod comes with a starting assignment. Peterson finished fourth overall in the final fan vote last week, and his spot was secure as the final two-thirds votes with the players and coaches added in.
"I can definitely say it means a lot more, just coming off the ACL and MCL injury to be voted in the Pro Bowl," Petersontold NFL Network later Wednesday evening. "It's a blessing."

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- If Adrian Peterson is able to become the NFL's all-time rushing leader this Sunday, the Vikings' star running back will have to thank the Green Bay Packers for playing such a significant role in his record-breaking season.

With an article that feels like it was written before the game had kicked off Kelly, a sports columnist for the Toronto Star issued a scathing column with the basic premise that the Vikings were failing this season because they were relying too heavily on Adrian Peterson. The piece fails to take into account where the Vikings would be without Peterson this season (certainly not facing...
If the Vikings beat the Packers, they are in the playoffs, but they will be attempting to win with star running back Adrian Peterson dealing with sore abdominal muscles.
Eric Dickerson was a great running back. But even if he still holds the single-season rushing record after this Sunday, when Adrian Peterson and his surgically repaired knee will be done churning out of the Minnesota backfield, chances are that Peterson will have done something Dickerson could have never touched.
Peterson is about to change the way the NFL plays offense.

The Vikings moved up two spots, to 12th, in the latest AP Pro32 power rankings, and the national media are starting to see more than just Adrian Peterson as assets on the team.
WIN AND IN!
Never in a million years. Never would I have thought that, this year, the Minnesota Vikings would be sitting at 9-6 on the year, guaranteed a winning record for the season (WHAT?!), in a position to play a meaningful game to get them into the playoffs in their last game of the season against their rival the Green Bay Packers, and that they would beat the Houston Texans...
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. The Minnesota Vikings couldn't have gotten any better health news in advance of Sunday's win-and-in playoff scenario.

It’s getting closer to the post season and the Houston Texans have not shown the same explosiveness on offense that they have in the first quarter of the season. The Texans hosted the Vikings at Reliant Stadium and were very gracious hosts as they allowed the Vikings to put their feet up on the table and make themselves at home. The game never seemed out of control or out of hand...
