Running back Adrian Peterson has been named the FedEx Ground Player of the Week after rushing for a season-high 203 yards against the Raiders.
Peterson carried the ball 26 times in that 30-14 win over the Raiders. The last carry was an 80-yard touchdown that sealed the victory.
This was the first time Peterson has won this weekly award since 2003. The 30-year-old back has now won it 15 times, second in the award’s history to only LaDainian Tomlinson, who won it 18 times.
Peterson ranks first in the NFL with 961 yards. He also has five touchdowns.
