Maybe its because the Vikings seemed to have few dominant running backs in thier franchise history, or backs seem to burn out after a few year, but Adrian Peterson (if healthy) will dominate the rushing and scoring record books for the franchise.
After today's amazing 180 yard preformance, Peterson has already racked up 3281 yards in his career, jumping from #9 on the Franchise rushing yards list to #7 (passing Michael Bennett 3174 and Tommy Mason 3252)
His 3 TD's today gives him 25 rushing TD's placing him at 8 on the list (breaking a tie for 10th with Alfred Anderson and Fran Tarkenton (22), passing Terry Allen's 23 at 9th place ). Leroy Hoard's 25 tds is next and if AP has a great year, he could be in 4th place on the rushing list. (Robert Smith is there with 32)
I love watching AP run, and the stats just back it up on how great he is
