Peterson's Splits More Favorable In Vikings' Losses

Dec 29, 2012 5:49 PM

Adrian Peterson has had a historical season by any measure.

But Peterson's best games haven't necessarily come in wins for the Minnesota Vikigns. 

In Minnesota’s wins, Peterson has 210 carries for 1,136 yards, a 5.41 yards per carry average; in Minnesota’s losses, Peterson has 104 carries and an outstanding 7.4 YPC average.

Among the 23 running backs with at least 50 carries in both wins and losses this year, that’s the most drastic split in the NFL.

Bradford Might Benefit From Up-Tempo System

Dec 20, 2012 1:18 PM

Sam Bradford has played well in up-tempo situations this season, begging the question of whether the St. Louis Rams should purposely play that way and not just when trailing.

Bradford’s fourth-quarter passer rating (94.4) and 2-minute passer rating (88.8) are better than his overall passer rating (83.3) this season.

Bradford ranks 21st in overall passer rating but is 13th in fourth-quarter rating.
