He ranks No. 16 in National Football League history in rushing yards and with 328 more yards this season will pass Thurman Thomas for No. 15. Vikings receiver Adam Thielen had nine catches for 157 yards. "And I see that for what it is", Peterson said.

He did it with shorter passes since he was constantly besieged behind a lackluster offensive line.
In fairness, none of the Saints ball carriers played well. At least not in the preseason.
