Adrian Peterson has become the third-fastest player in NFL history to reach 10,000 yards rushing for his career, passing the mark for Minnesota in the fourth quarter Sunday against Chicago in his 101st career game. Eric Dickerson got there in 91 games, and Jim Brown reached the milestone in 98 games.
Peterson entered the afternoon needing 154 yards to reach 10,000. He rushed for 211 yards to lift the Vikings to a wild 23-20 victory. And he passed the 1,000-yard mark for the sixth time in his seven seasons with the Vikings.
