This has to be the easiest first Head of Cerberus as the Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson is simply the best player in the entire league. In case you weren’t around for last year, he rushed for 2,097 yards with 12 touchdowns not to mention he did it less than a year after tearing his Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) and Medial Collateral Ligament (MCL) and will likely break the 10,000-yard career rushing mark this year sometime if he stays healthy all year long. Peterson is an incredibly hard and smart runner who can break a huge run seemingly at anytime of the game. The Buffalo Bills and every team knows, this and the only solace the Bills get is that it’s preseason and “All Day” will not play all day today.
The Bills linebackers including rookie Kiko Alonso and second year emerging star Nigel Bradham will be the main players responsible for hopefully containing Peterson as much as possible. Also the defensive line will be doing some due diligence if they can clog the Vikings offensive line up and forcing Peterson outside to outside linebackers Jamie Blatnick and Manny Lawson. Both of them can go sideline to sideline to make a play and either drive him into the ground or force him out of bounds to prevent a long run.
All in all, it should be interesting to see what Adrian Peterson does against the Bills and how long he plays, which could and likely will be only one series.
