SB Nation Looking For 2012 NFL Touchdown Of The Year

Hannah Foslien

Once again, March is the time for tournaments, and the folks from the mothership at SB Nation are no different. Our NFL folks have put together a 32-play tournament to attempt to determine the best touchdown of the 2012 NFL season.

Thus far, two of the four brackets have been posted, the South regional and the West regional. (Don't let the names throw you. . .much like the points on Whose Line Is It Anyway, they don't matter.) But the Minnesota Vikings are featured a couple of different times in the West Region.

First, there's one where the Vikings are being scored on, that being the ridiculous touchdown run by Robert Griffin III of the Washington Redskins that iced that matchup for Washington. But the Vikings are the scorers on two other plays in the region, and both feature. . .who else. . .Adrian Peterson.

The first one was one of the few highlights of the Vikings' Thursday night disaster against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, with Peterson taking a handoff and breaking a couple tackles (and getting a great block from Jerome Simpson) en route to a 64-yard touchdown run.

The other one is the top-seeded play in the region. . .Peterson's 82-yard jaunt against the Green Bay Packers.

That's a great play, and even though it came against Green Bay, I don't think it's my favorite Peterson touchdown of the year. That distinction would go to this one.

Not the best quality video, but there it is. I don't know if that one will be included in either of the other two regions or not.

So, make sure you go over and vote for the NFL's best player in this year's SB Nation Best NFL Touchdown of the Year tourney. If there are any more plays featuring the Vikings, I'll edit this post to include them.
