Tonight's Highlight Video Will Blind You. . .WITH SCIENCE!

We've all seen clips of ESPN's "Sports Science" series, where the network takes athletes and attempts to scientifically quantify their performances. . .there was one about Christian Ponder's accuracy in the days leading up to the 2011 NFL Draft, but I was unaware that there was one that was centered around Minnesota Vikings' running back Adrian Peterson.

But, there certainly is one, and here it is for your viewing pleasure.

Now, I can't tell you what all of the numbers mean, but I do know that Adrian Peterson is ridiculously fast, ridiculously strong, and ridiculously athletic.


Have to give some serious props to ESPN's John Brenkus. Even being completely padded up like that, and even if he wasn't going to hit me head-on, it would take a hell of a lot for me to say, "You know, I think it would be really awesome if Adrian Peterson got up a huge head of steam and then ran me over." I hope the man got some sort of hazardous duty pay for that or something.
