NFL Poll: Will there be a 2,000-yard rusher in 2013?

Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson became the seventh running back in NFL history to eclipse the 2,000-yard rushing milestone as he barely missed the all-time record set by Eric Dickerson.

Not only was Peterson recovering from a torn ACL to start the season, but he suffered and played through a sports hernia down the stretch.

With a clean bill of health heading into the 2013 season, Peterson has his sights set even higher. He is shooting for 2,500 rushing yards in 2013.

Before Peterson, the last 2,000-yard rusher was Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson (2,006 rushing yards in 2009), who also set the single-season record for most yards from scrimmage that year.

The first to reach the milestone was O.J. Simpson, who reached the milestone in 14 games and has the highest yards-per-game average (143.1) of any 2,000-yard rusher. Meanwhile, Barry Sanders has the highest yards-per-carry average (6.13) of any 2,000-yard rusher.

Will Peterson become the first ever to back-to-back 2,000-yard seasons? Or will another running back become the eighth back to reach the milestone in 2013?
