Forget about rookie records, Adrian Peterson is going after bigger game. It's taken Minnesota's first-year wunderkind a mere eight attempts to break the NFL's record for rushing in a game. The 296 yard eruption led the Vikings to a 35-17 flattening of the San Diego Chargers and put Peterson over the thousand yard mark at the halfway point of the season. Of course it wouldn't be a truly holy day without a few pilgrimages to the holy land. AP PJ had touchdowns of 1, 64, and 46 yards. Two of them were far more exciting than the third.
The loser in the situation (aside from the Chargers defense) is Cleveland's Jamal Lewis who saw his old record fall by the wayside. The convicted felon responded brilliantly with four huge touchdowns in the Browns overtime win against Seattle. Lewis might have lost a record, at least he'll have something to talk about if he ever bumps in to Al Bundy.
If you're looking for some Purple Jesus apparel 289 has you covered. We would make a kickass PJ shirt for KSK, but we're lazy and inept.
FanIQ has the video highlights of PJ's day, check it out before the NFL pulls the plug.
About Last Night should be up shortly...I hope.
