Adrian Peterson is a Cowboys fan
By Calvin Watkins
IRVING -- It shouldn't come as a surprise that Vikings running back Adrian Peterson is a Cowboys fan. Peterson grew up in Palestine, Texas and played college football at the University of Oklahoma.
Sunday, Peterson gets to face the Cowboys in the NFC divisional round.
"I was a huge Cowboys fan growing up - the days of Michael Irvin, "Prime Time" [Deion Sanders] and Emmitt [Smith]," Peterson said to reporters on Thursday. "It's going to feel good to play those guys. I've got a lot of family that's kind of uneven to what side they're pulling for. We're coming in definitely to get a win."
