Some people might think Adrian Peterson may be deflated after coming up just nine yards shy of breaking Eric Dickerson’s single-season rushing record, but Mike Florio thinks the opposite. Florio thinks Peterson could be motivated to try and break the record for most rushing yards in a single postseason game, which is 248 yards, also held by Dickerson. He goes on to say that to make Peterson’s season more memorable, the Vikings will need to make a playoff run.

If they go one and out, Florio says the Vikings would have been better off having Peterson break the record at the expense of missing the playoffs. He thinks Peterson will be in the right mindset for this, but whether the rest of his team will be remains to be seen.
