In a new NFL era of pass-heavy offenses and running back-by-committee, there are those who believe Emmitt Smith's career rushing record will never be broken.
Adrian Peterson isn't among them.
The Minnesota Vikings star rusher is undaunted by what it would take for him to reach Smith's mark of 18,355 yards. Even though he would have to maintain his career average of...
In a 28-10 loss to the Chicago Bears, on a Antoine Winfield interception return Vikings defensive end Jared Allen drew a penalty on a block to Bears guard Lance Louis which resulted in an ACL injury.

The numbers for Adrian Peterson in losses and wins support that theory. Plus, Matt Kalil talks about leading Pro Bowl voting among fans and the Vikings have to prepare for the Packers’ version of Percy Harvin.
