Adrian Peterson rushed for 122 yards and 3 TDs on Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals, a performance that led the Vikings to their first victory of the season. That performance also garnered Peterson NFC Offensive Player of the Week honors, the League announced on Tuesday.
This is the 5th time Peterson has won the award.
Peterson scored all 3 of his rushing TDs on Sunday in the 1st quarter, becoming just the 3rd player in NFL history to accomplish that feat. He also tied a team record for rushing TDs in a game and set a new team record for TDs in a quarter and a half.
Sunday’s performance gives Peterson 498 rushing yards (2nd in the NFL) and 6 rushing TDs (tied for 1st in the NFL) on the season. The 122-yard effort also marks the 26th 100-yard rushing game of Peterson’s career.
