During the Minnesota Vikings-St. Louis Rams Week 15 game, Vikes RB Adrian Peterson was phenomenal. A chunk of his production came on his 2nd quarter scamper.

The Vikings utilized an I-Formation with wide receivers isolated on the right and left. A slotback was on the right, which is where the point of attack occurred.

QB Christian Ponder looked to pass for a brief instant, only to hand the ball off to Peterson on the right. The defense thought that the draw was a pass, thus multiple defenders were sucked behind the line of scrimmage.

The slotback, fullback, and right guard bolted forward and paved a small opening for Peterson. The opening was clogged up, however, and Peterson bounced out and left. He sprinted through the secondary, past the 30, 40, 50, 40—you know the rest.
