Adrian Peterson passed Jim Brown on one list and Barry Sanders on another. Not a bad debut with his new team.
Peterson rumbled for 96 yards on 26 carries to eclipse Faulk and Brown for 10th all-time in rushing. "It means a lot," Peterson told reporters afterward. "I have a lot of support that keeps me going, keeps me motivated. Not only do I do it for myself and my family, but I do it for my fan base as well."
If Peterson continues to get the lion's share of carries for the Redskins -- his third team in 12 months -- he could surpass Tony Dorsett and Eric Dickerson by the end of the season. He's just four touchdowns from matching John Riggins and six behind Brown.
Peterson is now one of seven running backs in NFL history to rush for 100 touchdowns and 12,000 yards. And in Year 12, the future Hall of Famer might leave more current Hall of Famers in his rearview.
