Adrian Peterson has a long way to go if he wants to reach his goal of an unprecedented 2,500 yards rushing this season.
The Minnesota running back's 93 yards with two touchdowns in the Vikings' 34-24 loss to the Detroit Lions on Sunday weren't bad, but they fell short of our expectations for the reigning NFL MVP.
At this rate, Peterson will finish the season with 1,488 yards rushing -- a great number but a far cry from last year's near-record 2,097 as well as his own lofty goal for this season.
With two games to go in Week 1 of the NFL season, Peterson isn't even the league's leading rusher. In fact, no running back is.
