08:06 AM ET 12.26 | Adrian Peterson will need an awfully big day to get there. [Peterson] needs 208 rushing yards against Green Bay this Sunday to break Eric Dickerson's NFL record of 2,105. With one game left in the regular season, breaking that record is a pretty formidable task. And yet the fact that Peterson had 210 rushing yards when the Packers played the Vikings at Lambeau Field Dec. 2 is on the mind of every Packers defender. ... "He's a great guy. I've gotten to know him outside of football," said Packers linebacker Clay Matthews. "You'd love to see a guy who has worked so hard and has overcome so much to win that crown -- but ultimately that is against our defense. I don't think any of us want to see that happen. We'll do our best to try and contain him."

Good luck with that.... they haven't been able to stop anyone all year...

It looks like the Vikings won't be in the playoffs.

That's true and I don't think they can stop Peterson either. Better run defenses than theirs have focused on Peterson and couldn't stop him. However, I think they care more about winning than about stopping Peterson. That said, I'd hate to see another 'Favre laying down for Strahan to get the record' type deal.
