I'd love to see Adrian break some of Emmitt's records.

He's one of the greatest talents of all time, but who knows how long he'll hold up.

Adrian Peterson had his two longest runs of the season on Sunday. And he did it on only one good ankle.

Peterson said he injured one of his ankles on the first of his 17 carries for 88 yards (5.2 average). But he continued to get time through the end of the third quarter, when the Minnesota Vikings had all but sealed their 30-7 win over Tennessee.

"The whole game I was fighting through it," said Peterson, who got up slowly after several plays. "The wrong tackle aggravates it, but I got through it."

He'll be sore this entire week. I wouldn't be surprised if he's listed as questionable this week.

Peterson now has 29 100-yard rushing games for his career, matching Robert Smiths’s franchise record. Through seven games this season, Peterson is averaging 19 carries and 93 yards.

I also heard on the radio that with 1 more 50+ yd run, I think he'll match (or surpass, I can't remember) Robert Smith for most in a career on the team with 12.

Was surprised to read that Adrian Peterson leads the league in 20+ yard carries with 7. (Longest run: 34 yards)

Also...

Peterson is having a strong year, good to see him back out there. His TD numbers are down for what we are accustomed to seeing. Cant believe he went five games without a TD.

He is also on pace to have his best year as a pass-catcher.

And his 4.8 yds/carry is among the best in his career if he can keep that up.

His TD numbers will go up. He'll probably end the year with around 12.

Honestly, it doesn't really matter who we play. When we are right by the goaline, he can run over just about anyone.

I feel like I've been rooting for Adrian much more this year than any other year. I want him to prove everyone wrong about his injury, that he'll never be an elite back again.

He's doing a great job too on a bum ankle too. Shocked

I don't care what anyone says, he is still the #1 back in the league.

I think that's clearly obvious. The only players comparable statistically right now are Frank Gore, Jamaal Charles, and Alfred Morris. Arian Foster (and Morris) have more yards, but Foster also has 30 more carries. AD is on pace for about 1500 yds...in a season just off of knee surgery.

While Peterson has monopolized the Vikings franchise rushing records, in terms of dominance in his era, there is no questioning that Peterson is the pre-eminent running back of his time. Since joining the NFL in 2007, not only does he lead the league in rushing yards (7,527), nobody else is within 1,200 yards of him – second is injured Maurice Jones-Drew with 6,327. His 68 rushing touchdowns is 14 more than second-place Michael Turner. His 71 total touchdowns are 11 more than Jones-Drew, who remains second. His average of 93 yards a game is more five yards a game better than second-place Chris Johnson. There are different players in many of the rushing categories, but only one guy in first place in all them – Peterson.

Perhaps the best measuring stick is comparing Peterson across the lines with the most prolific running backs of all time. With 7,527 rushing yards, Peterson currently ranks 14th all-time in that category, but legends are going to be falling on almost a weekly basis that will likely have Peterson in seventh place on the all-time list for this stage of his career. He needs just 105 yards to pass Thurman Thomas, 189 to pass Clinton Portis, 194 to pass Edgerrin James, 228 to catch overtake Curtis Martin, 287 to pass Eddie George and 291 to pass Shaun Alexander. If he does that, he would clearly cement himself in pretty elite company.
