It's fantasy football playoff season, which is when any veteran knows heartbreak is around the corner. This time it's coming in the form of Adrian Peterson for some owners. The running back will sit out Sunday's game against the Eagles because of the sprained foot he suffered against the Ravens last week.

That's a shame because Peterson has been one of the few things that's been going right for the Vikings this season. He's rushed for 1,221 yards and 10 touchdowns, which means he's going to come back and rush 443 yards for his next two games to finally beat Eric Dickerson's record for most yards in a season. Sound about right?
