12:18 PM ET 12.23 | Minnesota's Adrian Peterson is still nearly 300 yards from Eric Dickerson's NFL single-season rushing record, but Peterson could surpass the 2,000-yard mark on Sunday against the Texans. Peterson, who has rushed for at least 100 yards in eight consecutive games, is 188 yards shy of 2,000. He's coming off a 212-yard performance against St. Louis and has topped the 180 mark thee times this season. After starting the season slow, Peterson has gone on a tear unlike anything ever seen in NFL history. Peterson has rushed for 1,313 yards over the last eight games, the highest rushing total over a single season eight-game stretch in NFL history.

The Saints did their job today, although they did it the hard way. Up to the Giants to take care of business in Baltimore.

Underated by whom? He is considered an all time great and he still owns the single season rushing record. He was overpaid though. Eric Dickerson and Craig James made too much money while in college at SMU ;)

Good luck to Adrian Peterson and this coming from a Saints fan. He is a great running back. Eric Dickerson was also a great one and I do not believe he was under rated.
Must say I agree, this has nothing to do with Kobe Bryant and the darn Lakers. Pro Basketball, UGH!
