Player of the Week: Minnesota’s Adrian Peterson

12/18/2012

This week’s AutoZone “In the Zone” Pro Football Player of the Week is Adrian Peterson.

The Minnesota running back ran all over St. Louis to the tune of 212 yards on 24 carries and a long touchdown run in a 36-22 win. Peterson’s 1,812 yards on the year means he needs 294 yards to break Eric Dickerson’s single-season NFL record for rushing yards.

Adrian Peterson was definitely “In the Zone” and he’s our AutoZone Pro Football Player of the Week.
