Adrian Peterson drags defender over goal line (GIF)

Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson is a beast, as most football fans know.

Through the first half of play against the Green Bay Packers, the perennial All Pro has 10 carries for 46 yards and a touchdown.

Peterson drug a Packers defender over the goal line and dove to make it in for that score.

Check it out here, it’s pretty impressive:


It was a bang-bang play, but it sure looks like he stretched the ball across right before his knees hit the turf.

Green Bay leads at the half 24-17.

Christian Ponder started at quarterback for the 1-5 Vikings and has gone 9-of-13 for 95 yards.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers is 13-of-16 for 169 yards with two touchdowns.

Peterson scored with 10 seconds left in the 2nd quarter to get the Vikings right back in the game.  The run capped off an 8 play, 77-yard drive by Minnesota.

Green Bay scored two quick TDs — in the span of 2 minutes – on a 76 yard reception from wide receiver Jordy Nelson and a 93 yard punt return from Micah Hyde.

Minnesota is coming off back to back losses to the New York Giants and the Carolina Panthers.  Green Bay has rattled off three straight wins against the Detroit Lions, Baltimore Ravens and Cleveland Browns.
