Vikings | Defenses stacking box against Adrian Peterson
Fri, 20 Sep 2013 10:09:31 -0700
Opposing defenses are stacking the box against Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson through two weeks of the season. Eighteen of his 44 runs this year have come with eight defenders in the box, which is the most in the NFL.
Are you surprised? Well, you shouldn't be. Until Christian Ponder proves he can beat defenses with his arm, not much will change. Peterson is obviously a must-start, but don't expect eye-popping numbers at the end of the season if this continues.
