The Chicago Bears have seen plenty of Adrian Peterson since the All-Pro running back joined the team as a first-round draft pick in 2007. Usually, Peterson gives them a handful.
Sunday was no different, as Peterson powered the Minnesota Vikings to a 23-20 win with 103 yards on 20 carries. It was his fifth straight 100-yard performance against the Bears, dating back to the 2012 season.
Adrian Peterson now over 100 yards. Fifth straight time vs. Bears.
Peterson has eight career 100-yard games versus the Bears. The veteran back’s biggest day against Chicago was his first one ever, when he put up 224 yards and three touchdowns as a rookie.
Although Peterson has been so productive against the Bears during his career, his play hasn’t led to a stretch of dominance for the Vikings. Sunday’s win put the Bears over .500 with a 7-6 record against the Bears’ during the 30-year-old running back’s tenure with the team.
