This week's Monday edition of our NFL Google+ hangout -- "NFL Slam with Mark and Sam," starring Times NFL columnist Sam Farmer and Mark Thompson of "Mark and Brian" radio fame -- will start at 11:30 a.m. today and cover a host of topics.
One topic could include the amazing season by Adrian Peterson. As Farmer wrote earlier this week,
"If there were an appropriate franchise to slow his pursuit, it would be the Rams — Dickerson's old club (now in St. Louis and not Los Angeles, of course) — considering they hadn't allowed an opposing runner more than 65 yards in their previous four games.
"And the Rams stonewalled Peterson a few times early in Sunday's game too, so it was looking good for them. But soon he broke free, finishing with 212 yards in 24 carries, including his second 82-yard touchdown run in three weeks.
