Peterson is not the same player he was last year

(WNFL) - Adrian Peterson is not the same player he was last year -- but the Green Bay Packers still have immense respect for him.  The Packers will try again on Sunday night to contain last year's M-V-P, when they play the Minnesota Vikings in Minneapolis.  Last December, Peterson exploded for 210 yards against the Pack at Lambeau Field, and 199 yards during their game in Minneapolis.  In the January playoffs, Peterson ran for 99 yards -- and all three of those games were Green Bay victories.  Defensive end Mike Daniels said he couldn't blink when facing Peterson last year.  That was when the All-Pro finished the regular season with two-thousand-96 rushing yards.  Daniels was a rookie last year, and said Peterson would almost be gone by the time he got to his coverage gap.  Despite Minnesota's 1-and-5 record -- and despite the distractions involving the apparent murder of his two-year-old son -- Peterson remains a huge threat.  He ranks seventh in the N-F-L in total rushing yards so far with 511, with an average of four-point-four yards per carry.  In 13 games against Green Bay, Peterson has run for 15-hundred-41 yards with 10 touchdowns.
