The Minnesota Vikings may not have emerged from Green Bay with a win on Sunday, but at least one winner emerged from it. Adrian Peterson has been voted the FedEx Ground Player of the Week for his performance in that game.

Here are Peterson’s stats for that week 12 game:
146 rushing yards
1 rushing touchdown
1 fumble lost
Adrian may be in line for the reward again this coming week against the Chicago Bears. Chicago has statistically the worst defense in the NFL against the run.
Congratulations to Peterson on this accomplishment and hopefully many more of these awards to come.
