Adrian Peterson passes Walter Payton on this list with latest rushing TD – 97.1 The Ticket

Adrian Peterson continues to climb the record books.

The 35-year-old Detroit Lions running back scored a 1-yard rushing touchdown in the first quarter of Sundays game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, which marked his 82nd career game with at least one rushing touchdown.

The accomplishment puts Peterson ahead of Hall of Famer Walter Payton for the fourth-most in NFL history.

Peterson was cut by the Washington Football Team just before the start of the season and was scooped up by the Lions. The future Hall of Famer has been productive for Detroit, entering Sunday averaging 4.5 yards per carry on 54 carries and one rushing touchdown.

Petersons touchdown also gave the Lions an early 7-0 lead over the Jaguars in what is reportedly a must-win game for head coach Matt Patricia.
