Following a knee injury, the Vikings did not know what to expect from Adrian Peterson going into 2012. What they got was an MVP season and more than 2,000 yards rushing. It should be fun to watch what Peterson does for an encore in 2013.
The Minnesota Vikings football team play in the NFC North Division, competing with key rivals the Green Bay Packers, Detroit Lions and Chicago Bears. The franchise was established in 1961, and before playing a single NFL game, the team added perhaps its most recognizable player to its roster. With their 1961 third round NFL Draft pick they selected quarterback Fran Tarkenton to lead the team. In his 13 NFL seasons in a Vikings uniform, Fran Tarkenton racked up more than 33,000 passing yards and threw 239 touchdowns, both team records. He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1986.
Vikings season ticket holders now get to watch a new transcendent athlete each week with running back Adrian Peterson. The all-pro running back was drafted by the Vikings in 2007 as the seventh pick in the NFL Draft and since then has taken football by storm. He won the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year in his first season and led the league in rushing yards in his second NFL season. Both years Peterson was selected as an NFL Pro Bowler, winning the All-Star game's Most Valuable Player award in 2008.
Each of the players on the Vikings roster will be battling for the NFC North title and a trip back to the NFL Playoffs.
