Vikings RB Adrian Peterson on his stats:
Q: It’s been a couple of months since you’ve had a 100-yard game. Is that wearing on your confidence at all?
A: Not at all; I am very confident. As a running back unit we have been contributing to this offense in the run game and the pass game and most importantly we’ve been winning, putting ourselves in the position to win an NFC Championship and head to the Super Bowl. So whatever I can do to contribute to the offense, that’s what I’m doing, putting it all in.
Q: Are you surprised that people get caught up with your stats? Isn’t it just about winning the game?
A: Yeah, ultimately that is what it is all about. I have been saying all year, and I said the first two years, I will take 50 yards a game if we are playing for that championship game. That is what matters the most, accomplishing that team goal, holding that trophy up at the end of the season. Everything else with the individual goals you can put that to the side.
