Washington Redskins running back and former Oklahoma star Adrian Peterson had a 32-yard run to set up a second-half field goal and finished with 78 yards to put his total at 14,216 in his 13th season. Peterson is fifth on the career rushing list despite missing playing time over the years due to injuries. The Redskins, who lost 47-16 on Sunday at Dallas, has a 2020 option on the 34-year-old's contract.
