How many times have you seen Adrian Peterson make this exact play?
Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson has a knack for ripping off long touchdown runs.
During the fourth quarter of Minnesota’s 30-14 win over the Oakland Raiders on Sunday, Peterson burst through a stacked box and sprinted his way to an 80-yard touchdown.

Before that run, Peterson had already put together a solid day on the ground. The 80-yard touchdown put him over the top, though. He finished with 203 yards on 26 rush attempts, tying him with Hall of Fame running back O.J. Simpson for most 200-yard rushing games in a career (six), according to Pro Football Talk’s Michael David Smith.
The 200-yard performance also put Peterson over 11,000 career rushing yards. He joins another Hall of Fame running back, Jim Brown, as the only other player in NFL history to rush for 11,000 and 90 touchdowns in his first 113 games, according to NFC communications director Randall Liu.
Oh, and to answer the question posed in the headline: four.
.@AdrianPeterson now has 4 80+ yard rushing TDs.
