Peterson has served as Minnesota’s lifeblood all season, as his legs have made the Vikings competitive again. He entered Sunday’s matchup with the Raiders as the NFL’s leading rusher. After missing 15 games last season, the veteran back has made a pretty convincing case for himself as Comeback Player of the Year.
