Here's a young Adrian Peterson shredding the Bears for 224 yards and 3 TDs as a rookie.

How will he fare tonight in Year 13? (via @nflthrowback)

Aye man!!!! Y’all ain’t gotta show this!!!! This is childish @SportsCenter!!! pic.twitter.com/M9QjBWshiq
If I had to watch one thing for the rest of my life, it would be Adrian Peterson highlights
Sooner Nation is well acquainted with AD’s talents. One of the best in @OU_Football history. One of the #NFL’s all-time best
This guy in his prime... 🐐
In reply to @SportsCenter
I’ve only watched the NFL since 2003 so I can’t speak for years prior and the old players, but he’s hands down the best running back I have ever seen on the field.
They ran stretch every time! Those cheesy bastards!
Just a reminder, Boise State somehow contained this man to less than 4 ypc and only 77 yards in the Fiesta Bowl. For all the things that get talked about this stat will always be crazy to me.

9 carries for 27 yards
AP used to TORCH all NFC north teams.. but it was something about them Bears boy... straight from the jump as a rookie he was coming for they head 😂😂. He owned the city of Chicago
In reply to @SportsCenter
Lol he won’t get more than 30 yards against us. Legend tho but our linebackers are much faster than him
This man beat his child and still has a job. The NFL is a trash league that only cares about one thing
An all-time great right here...it’s gonna be a long time before we see another player like him...
How this game went to OT I’ll never understand....

But Peterson carried the franchise for YEARS.
Greatest RB of all time
Peterson is the best RB that I’ve ever seen play. That being said if he sniffs 50 yards tonight I’d be shocked
In reply to @SportsCenter
2019 Refs just called holding
In reply to @SportsCenter
Hopefully he can show up with at least some of that tonight.
Young AP was the best pure running back of all-time.
I will never forgive him for doing us like that😂💯
The nastiest running back of my generation
AP and LT gotta be top two I’ve seen
honestly, the goat of RBs
watching ap in his prime was such a thrill
In reply to @SportsCenter
Watch him do the same
In reply to @SportsCenter
This made me realize he’d be one of the best backs ever . The Bears run defense was amazing this year and he made this look so easy
This day so crazy I never seen something like this
The cloth different he talk different
I wish he never got hurt 😩
Best rb my eyes have watched
He was really something else
Almost forgot how much of a freak AP was in his prime.
Crazy thing is he had 296 on them later that year too and still holds the record for most rushing yards in a game. As a ROOK
In reply to @SportsCenter
Best HB to ever do it
Adrian Peterson is easily the best RB we’ve seen in our generation
Him and LT the best running backs I’ve ever seen in my life
In reply to @SportsCenter
He beat them just like he would his own infant son.

In reply to @SportsCenter
Bears better get ready for that L
The greatest RB that I’ve ever seen.
Best I’ve seen
People forget how good he was
Dude was unreal
Prime AP was an era itself
In reply to @SportsCenter
Damn young AP was really something special
In reply to @SportsCenter
when the head starts buckin...
In reply to @SportsCenter
AP is far and away the greatest back my generation has been able to watch, along with LT
Twitter reminds of how much I miss AP 😭
i remember this game. thought he’d be the greatest RB ever
If he can do this for my fantasy tonight >>>
I think people forget how good this dude was
Remember what I was telling you and @_RobC3 , bruh was DIFFERENT @RealToniiioo
Bears D will eat him alive.
S/o to my goat. @NFL tired to ruin you & you came back faster, better, stronger ✊🏾 @AdrianPeterson
I would cry real tears if he did this tonight
Prime AP top 5 prime running backs of all time and I just got out of class so I got time to argue about it too
dude galloping
Kinda wanna see this guy tonight. It would be real cool lol
omg he woulda went down as the goat if he didnt get hurt
Once AP put that head down it aint no catching em
The best and most physical running back in this generation. I know some will say it's a toss up between him and LaDainian Tomlinson. LT got the touchdowns and yards right now but man I've never seen someone strike fear in a defense like All Day. Adrian Peterson ran angry 24/7.

Bears defense will probably contain him but they will lose 10-3 because Mitch trubisky is the worse starting quarterback in the NFL.
In reply to @SportsCenter
Quit playing this ain't Adrian Peterson this is Gale Sayers!
In reply to @SportsCenter
Strangely looked like a single back set, and not I formation. Hmmm. #HTTR
In reply to @SportsCenter
The way that Adrian Peterson could juke at full speed in his prime was unstoppable
In reply to @SportsCenter
Wow, look at him SWITCH it into high gear and BEAT that defense, making them look like a bunch of CHILDREN. Fuuuuck this child abusing POS.
In reply to @SportsCenter
I’m gonna tell my kids bedtime stories about prime AP
In today’s football first play #89 is gone for the rest of the night with a fine sad but true 😅
Greatest of an era
🖕🏻 Much worse, I assure you. #Bears
All Day was really somethin else man, never gonna be another like him.
Barkley is a freakish athlete and I believe will go down as one of the best ever. But boy y’all forgot about vintage AP real quick.
