Vikings running back Adrian Peterson has 1,600 yards in 13 games. That puts him on pace for 1,969.
He’s aimed a little higher than that.
As he told Peter King after Sunday’s win over the Bears, Peterson is shooting not for 2,000 but 2,106 — one yard more than the all-time single-season record held by Rams running back Eric Dickerson.
Earlier this morning, Dan Patrick asked Peterson if Dickerson should be nervous.
“I think so,” Peterson said. “I think so.”
We think so, too.
