– RB Adrian Peterson is just the 3rd player in NFL history to open each of his first 3 seasons with a 100+ yard performance in the season opener. Willie Parker (4; 2005-08) and Edgerrin James (3; 1999-2001) are the only other players to have accomplished the feat.
– Peterson also became the 1st player in NFL history to rush for at least 180 yards and 3 TDs on Kickoff Weekend. His 180 yards is a Vikings record for opening day and his 3 TDs set a new team mark for most career games with 3 rushing TDs (Peterson now has 3).
