AP tearing up AFC North

Posted by ESPN.com’s James Walker

Minnesota Vikings Pro Bowl tailback Adrian Peterson isn’t lighting up every team he plays this season.

But anytime "All Day" rushes against the AFC North, look out!

Peterson is having his best days this season against one of the most balanced divisions in football. In games against the Baltimore Ravens and Cleveland Browns, Peterson rushed for 323 yards and three touchdowns. He’s gained more yards in two games against AFC North teams than in four contests against the rest of the NFL.

Next up is a great matchup between Peterson and the Pittsburgh Steelers (4-2). Pittsburgh is third in the NFL in total defense and second against the run.

Will Peterson continue his success against the AFC North this week?
