Peterson named NFC Offensive Player of Week

Vikings RB Adrian Peterson was named NFC Offensive Player of the Week after his record-breaking performance Sunday in Chicago.

Peterson set a team record in the game with 224 rushing yards and 361 combined yards and tied a team record with three rushing touchdowns.

"Iā€™m proud of the accomplishment and it feels great to be the Player of the Week,ā€ Peterson said. ā€œI owe it all to my teammates and the linemen who opened the holes and gave me an opportunity to make plays. More important than the records and the awards is the fact we won the game. We needed a win last week and (that's) the most important thing.ā€

Peterson is the first Vikings rookie to earn NFC Offensive Player of the Week honors since Randy Moss won the award for his performance at Dallas (11/26/98).
