Tonight the Vikings will continue their chase of a 2nd consecutive division title and also the NFC’s #1 seed. And as RB Adrian Peterson assists his team in that chase tonight, he’ll also be chasing marks set by some great NFL RBs.
With 22 rushing yards, Peterson will move into 8th place in NFL history for the most rushing yards in the first 3 seasons. He currently has 4,301, with former Lions runner Barry Sanders sitting in 8th place with 4,322 through his first 3 seasons.
If Peterson rushes for 33 yards, he will climb past Sanders and also past Ottis Anderson, who had 4,333 in his first 3 seasons and is in 7th place all-time. The next RB on the list is Terrell Davis, who had 4,405 yards in his first 3 seasons. Peterson needs 105 yards to move past Davis into 6th place.
