Eric Dickerson's NFL single-season rushing record with 2,105 yards was 28 years ago.

One quarter, 61 yards to go... can he do it?

Will he get the chance?

Because the Vikes MUST win this game and because the running game is working, probably so as long as they are barely winning. A strong running game is critical in that situation as long as it can move the chains and burn clock. If they were trailing or winning big, you'd have less need to lean on him. But this is one case where pushing for a record makes sense for the team's playoff hopes as well.

AP should win the MVP but he won't because of Manning.

By the way, Christian Ponder is looking good. I'd take him over Schaub right now.

AP still has a chance if we get OT.

It's what late December football ought to be (except that it's in a dome and on artificial turf). This has all the feel of a playoff game, and for the Vikings, it effectively is.

47 to touch, but if they play for a FG it's a no go.

2071.

Minn K Walsh is perfect from 50+ yards.

AP probably sealed a playoff berth with a big run for 26. I'm sure he'll take that over the record.

9 yards short but I'm sure he would rather take the win and the playoff spot.

Wolf

I think he had about 30 or so less rushes than Dickerson if I saw the stat right

I love it!! No record in part thanks to the Texans for holding him in check.

Palestine or not, screw him, no record.

That was just a bad game. It happens to even the best teams, and at the time the Texans were playing great football. Right now I think the Packers would humiliate the Texans.

What have you got against AP?

I was hoping he'd break it. Dude is a machine and should be the MVP.

Now that the Vikes have made the playoffs because of his legs, it greatly increased his chances.

Nothing against him. I favor Dickerson. Plus, the Texans proved to be an obstacle. Dickerson was a machine. You just had to be there.

I am incredibly glad Adrian Peterson didn't get the record, and I'm disappointed that the team he plays for got a playoff spot.

**** Peterson for what he said last year during the lockout, comparing playing in the NFL to slavery. There's no coming back from something as absurd, ridiculous, and disgusting as that.
