Jaguars At Vikings: Animation Of Adrian Peterson's Touchdown Run

In case you missed it, have a look at the touchdown run for Adrian Peterson that pulled the Vikings within 9-7 at the half.

A couple of things about this run that you have to feel pretty good about if you're a fan of the Minnesota Vikings.

First of all, the hole that Peterson had to run through was pretty sizeable. Nice job by the Vikings' offensive line of opening things up for him.

Second of all, he made a really nice cut in order to get through the hole, which shows that he's not really thinking about his injured knee too much. That's a positive sign, since it would probably be harder for him to do those sorts of things if his mind was on re-injuring himself.

So, Adrian Peterson is showing some good signs in his first game back from a serious injury. Hopefully the rest of his teammates will continue showing some signs as well.
