Two weeks ago, Eric Dickerson stated his case that he does not want Adrian Peterson to break his single-season rushing yards record. On Friday he stood his ground yet again when speaking with the NFL “I do not want him to break my record,” Dickerson reiterated.” “I’m not going to tell that lie, but he’s such a great player, and I’ll say it: If a record that is meant to go down to one guy, it’d have to be him.” “Everybody wants to keep their records until they die, maybe their son comes along and breaks the record, something like that, but I just want to hold on to it. … I’m just honest about it. Like I say, great player, deserving of a record like that, deserves to be in the 2,000-yards club, that type of player, but, you know, I want to hang on to my record.” Dickerson may not have much of a choice as Peterson could be within striking distance. Players View Prediction Adrian Glover: This game is more than about the record. If Minnesota wins they are in the playoffs. I genuinely feel as if everyone connected to that organization down to the guy that is polishing the footballs cares more about that than Adrian Peterson snatching the single-season rushing record from Eric Dickerson.  Please Click Here To Read The Rest Of The Two-Person Analysis & Game Picks.
