Adrian Peterson reflects on favorite run of career back in 2009 – Vikings Wire

Adrian Peterson is 35 years old.

Hes had plenty of memorable runs over his career, and that will continue this season with the Redskins as Peterson will compete for the starting running back job.

For NFL.com, Peterson reflected on his favorite run from his career thus far.

Peterson took us back to Sept. 13, 2009. It was the first game of the season and Petersons third season in the league. The Vikings were playing the Browns in Cleveland. Not only was Brett Favre starting his first game with the Vikings, but Jim Brown, who Peterson admires, was in attendance.

With just less than six minutes left in the game, Peterson busted off a 64-yard touchdown run, which was his third of the day. Peterson used his classic combo of strength and speed to eventually get to the end zone.

What makes this more remarkable is that Peterson had to get IVs pumped into him at halftime.

It was an amazing feeling, Peterson said. I remember Rodney Poole was coming down and I kind of gave him a shoulder to the right and cut to the left and he ate grass. . . Thats definitely my favorite run play in my career.

Peterson ended the game with 180 rushing yards and three touchdowns, the biggest coming on his last touch of the day.
