We’ve already chronicled the success Vikings RB Adrian Peterson has had playing against the Bears and specifically playing at Soldier Field. On Thursday while speaking with reporters, Peterson explained why it is he enjoys playing in Chicago so much.
“I love playing every team, but I love playing at Soldier Field,” Peterson explained. “I don’t know what it is, probably cause Sweetness [Walter Payton] played there and just the tradition of the stadium. I look forward to carrying the load if they call my number.”
When asked if he liked playing at Soldier Field more because of his success there than the history, Peterson reiterated his respect for the historical significance of the Chicago Bears and their home stadium.
“It’s because of Payton too, and just the history of Soldier Field,” he said. “You always hear about the Chicago Bears defense. When I was young, I always played with Chicago ’85 [in video games] because of the defense. That’s part of it too.”
