Adrian Peterson crossed the 10,000 yard mark Sunday against the Bears, becoming just the fourth man in league history to do so in 7 or fewer seasons.
Fittingly, the run that put Adrian over 10,000 was, well, an Adrian Peterson sort of run.
Peterson would finish the game with 211 yards on 35 attempts. Many of his hard-fought yards came late with the Vikings trying to drive into range for winning field goals. The Vikes finally managed to complete that task late in overtime.
Groin or no groin, Peterson continues running hard, battling for yards, battling to win. Don’t tell this guy about sucking for draft position. Arguing that the team should lay down on purpose is an insult to guys like Peterson.
