Player of the Game: Adrian Peterson

Before the season, what was the best-case scenario for Adrian Peterson's season? 1,200 yards? 1,500 if the knee was completely healed? The fact that he's going for not only 2,000 yards but the all-time single season record puts Purple Jesus in rarified air, and the fact that he has the Vikings battling for the playoffs is almost as unbelievable as his stats, but here they are, in Week 16, and with this win over the Texans, Minnesota picks up its ninth win of the season thanks to Peterson's 155 yards and two touchdowns.
