Minnestoa Vikings star and reigning NFL MVP Adrian Peterson is one of the most gifted running backs ever, and he added to his growing legend by carrying three Dallas Cowboys defenders into the end zone on this 11-yard touchdown run:
Now that, for lack of a more descriptive word, was simply incredible. Peterson is a freak of nature and athletic marvel.

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 […]
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.
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.
Purple Jesus had had yet another incredible performance. As of five minutes left in the fourth quarter in Dallas, he has 139 yards rushing and just gave the Vikings a 23-20 lead with a bruising 11-yard touchdown run. It should be noted that a good deal of the credit that this ended as a TD goes to Vikings tight end Chase Ford, who catches Peterson being forced to the ground by two...
Adrian Peterson is a beast, the Minnesota Vikings aren't very good, so he has to do it himself.
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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?
