Adrian Peterson having a rough night

AP

Adrian Peterson gained 134 yards in his first game with the Cardinals, 21 in his second and 159 in his third. So it follows the pattern that he should struggle tonight.

Peterson lost a fumble on his first carry of the night. He was tackled in the end zone for a safety on his ninth.

He has nine carries for 13 yards.

Kam Chancellor, who forced Peterson’s fumble, trapped Peterson in the end zone with 10:53 remaining in the second quarter. It gave the Seahawks a 9-7 lead.

The Cardinals were backed up because of a bad decision by Kerwynn Williams, who caught a punt on the 2-yard line and returned it 13 yards. But Justin Bethel was called for holding, backing Arizona up at its own 2.

  1. Loved To watch Peterson those first few years. But like many Vikes fans, I decided his inability to hold onto the ball against the Saints in the NFC championship game and other crucial times made him more a liability than an asset. He can’t block, catch the ball and comes off the field on every third down. Sorry Cardinals fans, what you see tonight is Adrian the bonehead. It’s his thing.

  2. oh right. Peterson. Seahawks. Fumble. It’s what he does. Cardinals should be happy it wasn’t in the 4th quarter of a playoff game that lead to points that ended up being the difference in the game.

  3. His runs are usually 1, 1, -3, 2, 7, 0, 30, 5, 0, -1 … And so on… AP ball involves 30 carries a game and a lot of frustration. The league changed. He doesn’t fit well unless you have no pass game. Even then you better play good D

  4. 21 for 29 which works out to one-point-diddly yards per carry. He’s toast. Fat Brucey wasted his money on a dinosaur who can only perform once every 4 games. Kudos to him and that idiot Keim.

  5. He did have a rough night, and so did Arizona’s O-line. Emmitt Smith would have had a rough night behind them with the utter lack of a passing offense, eight men in the box, and the lack of push up front. AP might not be an elite back anymore, but would did Arizona expect after giving him 37 touches and then playing like that up front?
