Peterson was one step -- or one turnover -- away from leading the Vikings to Super Bowl XLIV. And while he rushed for three touchdowns in the 2009 NFC Championship Game against the Saints, he also fumbled twice and dropped a handoff at the Saints' goal line. Brett Favre's interception late in regulation ensured Peterson would not get his first shot at a Super Bowl that season.
