Adrian Peterson: 2K

By Kevin Seifert

MINNEAPOLIS -- Welcome to the 2,000-yard club, Adrian Peterson.

A 20-yard carry on the Minnesota Vikings' first play of the third quarter put Peterson over a milestone that only six players in NFL history had done. The full rendering is in the chart.

The run gave Peterson 2,009 yards for the season, making his season already the fourth-most productive by a running back in NFL history. That puts him 97 yards away from breaking Eric Dickerson's record.
