Adrian Peterson isn't the type of guy to spout B.S. His statement about running 2,500 yards this season wasn't just a claim or a wish; it was a proclaimation. Fortunately for fans and the Vikings (and unfortunately for the perpetually unfortunate Lions), the man is all action...and was all action from his first carry.
In his very first rush of the season, Peterson pulled off a a few sharp moves and put on the jets to score a 78-yard touchdown against Detroit. If there were any doubters, Peterson is doing an extraordinary job of silencing them.
