As one of the best running backs in the league, Adrian Peterson rarely takes criticism for much, especially for the Minnesota Vikings‘ 0-3 record through the NFL‘s first three weeks. The season had begun with high hopes for the Vikings, but no wins through the first few games of the season has to be disappointing — seeing as they hoped to duplicate their 10-6 season from 2012.
Peterson has been one of the most beloved players in Vikings history and it’s not often people call him out for doing anything wrong — because he rarely does. However, his daughter, Adeja, thinks that he can do better. Losing to the lowly Cleveland Browns on Sunday apparently was just about as annoying to the young girl as it was to every other Vikings fan out there.
So my daughter is laying here under me and just out the blue she says… I can’t believe you lost to the Browns Daddy! Smh

Well, she basically speaks for the rest of the country when she says that because the Browns were a depleted team heading into Sunday’s game against Peterson’s Vikings. They weren’t that solid before losing star running back Trent Richardson to a trade or quarterback Brandon Weeden to injury. This team was holding on by a thread and had basically given up on the 2013 season.
However, it’s evident that the Browns don’t know how to tank a season to get a top draft pick as they held on the beat the Vikings behind the arm of Brian Hoyer.
Pretty awesome stuff from AP’s daughter.
