Another Vikings Highlight Video For Your Viewing Pleasure

Since I managed to leave you folks without one the other night, here's another highlight video for everyone's viewing pleasure this morning/evening.

In 2007, Adrian Peterson missed a couple of games with a knee injury. He missed contests against the New York Giants and the Oakland Raiders, with the team managing to go 2-0 in his absence. He made his return against the Detroit Lions on December 2, 2007, and people immediately wondered if he would be the Adrian Peterson of old. . ."old" obviously being all of three weeks previous, when he set the NFL's single-game rushing record.

Well, it didn't take long for Peterson to establish that he was, indeed, back. . .and if you didn't want to take his word for it, you could have asked Lions' safety Kenoy Kennedy.


Still one of the sickest moves you'll ever see from a running back. (Hopefully Chris Berman's inanity didn't ruin the video for you.) I had a close-up of that juke as a .gif at one time, but it must have been on my old computer, because I have no idea where it is now.

Peterson had 116 yards and two scores in that game, a 42-10 rout of the Lions to get the Vikings back to 6-6 on the season and back into the NFC playoff hunt. They ultimately finished that year 8-8, but they knew that their star running back had the ability to recover from injury quickly. Hopefully that trend will continue as Peterson rehabs his torn ACL.
