that's crazy.

he set an NFL record at 296, 300 is just another number.

what would have guys said if Childress kept playing him beyond 296 and he got hurt?

I see your point, I just think when you can be the first to hit a monumental number it helps cement a legacy? In baseball numbers are a bit more relevant like Babe Ruth was the first to hit 500 HR's but I do think it has some value in football as well.

It isn't a huge deal, just would have been cool to say I was at the game the first time someone rushed for 300 yards in one game. The record will continue to be broken but at some point there could be an "elite 300 club" that Adrian will not be apart of.

Or if he had been stopped for a loss and lost the single-game record?

I believe there was an RB who lost two 1,000 yard seasons that way.

You never know...the way he has been running lately, he might be the first member of the club. If it weren't for Ponder's INT's on Sunday, he may have done it last week.

I blame a charger player, cant forget his name. remember at the end of the game and the Vikes were running out the clock and Peterson turned the corner and flew past the CB (or S?) but was pulled down by his face mask. If it wasnt for that face mask grab, he probably would have taken it to the house.

Another monster game from AP. He passed Herschel Walker and Earnest Byner by the end of the first quarter.

After Week 14 of the 2012 NFL season, AP is currently ranked #36 all-time in rushing yards.

In Week 14, AP (8,352) passed Herschel Walker (8,225) and Earnest Byner (8,261).

In other news, Steven Jackson needs 71 yards to reach 10,000 career rushing yards. Hats off to him for a great career.

Next Up (within 200 yards):
There are no players within 200 yards of AP's current yardage total.

I hope the coaches keep feeding him the ball so he can take a stab at the season record

So what does Peterson have to average to get to 2000 this year?

He is at 1600 yards with 3 games to go, so about 134 yards per game. Its doable considering how he has played. Though I expect that the Texans game will be a struggle so Peterson really needs big games against St. Louis and Green Bay.

I think he has 1600 yards even, so 134 yds/gm will get him over 2000 for the season.

Any chance Peterson passes up Frank Gore this season?

Much will depend on how many of their starters they are resting. Houston in particular might sit some DL who are banged up to rest them for the playoffs. On the other hand, the Packers might have to start people they'd rather rest either to make the playoffs or to get a favorable seed.

I don't think so. Even if Gore averages only 60 yards per game for the next three weeks, that would put him right about 500 yards ahead of AP, which is asking a lot to overcome. Now, next season? I wouldn't be surprised at all.

i just heard on NBC that after today's game, Peterson says it will be "easy" this year to get 2000 yards.

he's now going for the all time NFL record of 2105 yards in one season.

Shocked
