Adrian Peterson Shows He’s Still the Best Running Back in the NFL
For the first time in his NFL career, people were doubting Adrian Peterson. They questioned whether he could come back after tearing two ligaments in his knee, and be the same running back. Well Peterson showed everyone Sunday, that he’s still the best in the business.
Now I’ll admit that I was a little worried going into the game, and a bit surprised to see Peterson in the starting lineup. I figured that he might get into the game for a few carries, but no, the Minnesota Vikings went all in on AP.
I had the privilege of being at this game, and can tell you that the crowd was electric when Peterson took the field. But at the same time, you could feel everyone holding their breath every time he went down. You would think to yourself, please get up, please get up, and he always did.
As the game went on, Peterson seemed to get better and better. He ran with the same authority and swagger that he always has. It was all there from his trademark high stepping into the end zone, to even flipping up from his back after his second score.
Time after time my friends and I would look at each other in awe, like this guy is a freak. I’ve never seen anything quite like it in my life. If you didn’t know about the surgery, you wouldn’t have been able to tell that he was even injured.
Peterson says he’s still not quite at 100%, which is hard to believe after his performance Sunday, even though you know he’s only 9 months out from the operation.
Overall he ran 17 times, for 87 yards, and 2 touchdowns.
So for those that thought he was coming back too soon, and that there was no way he was going to be the same, Adrian Peterson left no doubt that he’s still the best running back in the NFL.
