Peterson named NFC Offensive Player of the Month

Vikings RB Adrian Peterson was named the Offensive Rookie of the Month for October, making him the first repeat winner since Jeremy Shockey and Dwight Freeney in 2002.

Peterson's month included the 224-yard rushing performance in Chicago, and he still leads the league in rushing.

Meanwhile, QB Tarvaris Jackson said his finger "felt fine" coming out of practice. He expected soreness, but he didn't have any setbacks.

QB Kelly Holcomb also said he is feeling much better, and he isn't sure what his timetable is to return to the field.

Peterson is a great RB indeed. And, if the Vikings mix a lot of DIFFERENT plays for him, such as screens and quick passes to the slots. Peterson will be off to the races.

I agree, Drew. The Vikings should mix in some more plays where he catches the ball out of the backfield. That was definitely missing against the Eagles.
