Adrian Peterson Attempting Historic Run Sunday Against Packers


The list of 2,000 yard rushing seasons in the NFL includes just six names. Adrian Peterson will look to join that list against the Packers Sunday. Peterson enters the regular-season finale with 1,898 yards, needing just 102 yards to become just the seventh player to eclipse 2,000 rushing yards in a single season.

For Peterson, that is not the number he is chasing. Instead the Vikings back is aiming for 208 yards Sunday to break Eric Dickerson's single-season rushing record of 2,105 yards, set in 1984. Peterson rushed for 210 yards on 21 carries in the Vikings' first game against the Packers on December 2 at Lambeau Field.

Not a single Packers defender wants to be the team that allowed Peterson to break the record against them. Green Bay needs a win this weekend to lock down home field advantage in the divisional round of the playoffs and a first round bye.

Here is a list of the NFL's all-time 2,000 yard rushers:

1984

Eric Dickerson

2,105

2003

Jamal Lewis

2,066

1997

Barry Sanders

2,053

1998

Terrell Davis

2,008

2009

Chris Johnson

2,006

1973

O.J. Simpson

2,003
