Rant My Life: Clay Matthews Says Adrian Peterson Won’t Rush For 200 Yards Again
For the third time this season, the Green Bay Packers and Minnesota Vikings will square off on Saturday in the Wild Card round of the playoffs–less than one week after the Vikings earned the final spot in the NFC with a 37-34 win over their division rivals. In his first two games against the Packers this year, Adrian Peterson has rushed for 210 and 199 yards as the two teams have split both matchups, but one player is willing to make sure that doesn’t happen again–Clay Matthews.
The Green Bay linebacker claims Peterson won’t reach the 200-yard milestone again on Saturday, but how can he make it sound so easy to contain considering the MVP candidate has already done it twice against the Packers so far this season? What Peterson did during the regular season after tearing his ACL last December has been nothing short of phenomenal and with an overrated defense like the Packers–it’s going to be difficult for Matthews and company to contain him on Saturday.
No matter what team he’s been playing against, just about every defense has struggled to contain Peterson in the second half of 2012 as he’s broken the 100-yard mark in nine of his last 10 games. Minnesota proved last weekend they have what it takes to pull off the upset against Green Bay and with the way Peterson’s been playing lately–it wouldn’t be a surprise if they left Lambeau Field with a win on Saturday and advanced to the Divisional Round for a matchup against the Atlanta Falcons.
When taking all of this into consideration–it would be best if Matthews just kept his mouth shut when it comes to shutting Peterson down.
