Greatest Viking Of All Time Tournament: Adrian Peterson Advances

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

Chuck Foreman is one of the greatest running backs in Minnesota Vikings history. However, as this round of our Greatest Viking Of All Time Tournament showed, many Vikings fans feel that he. . .and every other running back in team history. . .are simply fighting it out for second place.

Adrian Peterson cruised to a third straight easy victory in our tournament, taking down Foreman to become the first person into our Elite 8. When everything was finally counted up, Peterson wound up receiving 204 "recs" from our readers, while Foreman wound up with 18 "recs." It was a nice run for Foreman. . .what I did there, did you see it. . .but in the end, pretty much all running backs in team history have to bow before the man they call AD.

In the Elite 8, Peterson will be facing one of his teammates, as he will take on the winner of the match-up between defensive end Jared Allen and cornerback Antoine Winfield for the right to move on to our Final Four.

We're well on our way to determining who the readers of The Daily Norseman believe to be the greatest Minnesota Viking of all time, folks. Keep your eyes out for more results and match-ups that you can vote in!
