Adrian Peterson came tantalizingly close to breaking Eric Dickerson's single-season rushing record last season, but he's not paying attention to that this year. Peterson said that his goal in 2013 would be to rush for 2,500 yards -- a full 395 yards past Dickerson's record of 2,105. Peterson would have to average 156.25 yards rushing per game to accomplish that goal -- he managed 131 per game this past season. It won't be easy, but neither was coming back less than a year after reconstructive knee surgery, and that worked out pretty well for him.
