Week/PeriodRankRecordComments
Initial100-0Minnesota's Adrian Peterson led the NFL in rushing with 1,485 yards and he rushed for 11 touchdowns. Excluding his one-game 2014 season, Peterson has rushed for double-digit touchdowns in all eight of his other nine seasons. Currently 10th all-time in rushing touchdowns (97), AP is currently 13 rushing scores behind Walter Payton (110, fourth all-time).
Post-Draft90-0Not only did the Vikings arguably add the best receiver in this year's draft class with Laquon Treadwell, but Mackensie Alexander was a nice value with the 54th overall pick as well. And Moritz Boehringer, the first-ever player drafted out of Europe, joins his favorite team after taking up the sport as a 17-year-old impressed by an Adrian Peterson YouTube video.
Week 190-0Preseason win projection: 9-7
Week 291-0Despite a slow start from Adrian Peterson (19 carries for 31 yards), the Vikings defense scored two more touchdowns than the Vikings offense in Week 1.
Week 392-0The Vikings have their first 2-0 start since 2009, but Adrian Peterson will likely miss the entire season with a torn meniscus. In the Mike Zimmer era, the Vikes are 14-5 with AP (and 6-9 without him).
