Peterson focused on wins, not records


Minneapolis (WXOW) - The Vikings need to win their remaining two games to stay in the playoff picture. Although that's a markedly tougher task on the road next Sunday against the 12-2 Houston Texans.

Adrian Peterson's been carrying the Vikings hopes, averaging 192 yards a game over the past three. He's also carrying some hopes of his own.

At the rate he's going, "All Day" will break Eric Dickerson's single season rushing yard record. That's something Peterson and head coach Leslie Frazier discussed today.

"He wants to concentrate on winning this game even more so than the record," Frazier said. "Our players are enthused by what he's been doing. It's been incredible to watch. They're pulling for him without question. Every one of our guys knows the importance of winning this game, and if the record comes, that would be terrific. But the most important thing is to get a win."

The Vikings will go for that win on the road at noon on Sunday.
