Keep An Eye On Peterson As He Approaches Team’s All-Time Rushing Record

Posted by Mike Wobschall on November 20, 2011 – 9:42 am

Today’s Vikings-Raiders game at Mall of America figures to be a closely-contested contest. The Raiders come in with a better record and sitting atop their division, but the Vikings are playing at home and are looking to make amends after a poor outing last Monday night.

But even if the game gets out of hand, Vikings fans will have something to watch for all 4 quarters. RB Adrian Peterson is just 191 yards away from becoming the Vikings all-time leading rusher. The current leader is Robert Smith, of course, who finished his career with 6,818 yards.

Even if Peterson gets off to a slow start against the Raiders, we know from past experience that he can get it going quickly. When he set the NFL’s single-game rushing record of 296 yards back in 2007 against San Diego, he had 253 of those yards in the 2nd half.

So even if either the Vikings or Raiders jump out in front and control the game, you can still keep your eye on #28 and root for him to inch close to, and perhaps even break, Smith’s all-time mark today.

    If AP sets the record today, the Vikings win big.

    It was a close game though. While I hate praising the Packers at all, I don’t think the Raiders are as good a team as them.

    The Raiders aren’t half as good as the dreaded Packers, that’s why I posted that. If he breaks the record today, Vikes win 31-13.
