Here were Barry Sanders' rushing totals through 10 games in 1997, the year he ran for 2,053 yards and won NFL co-MVP honors with Brett Favre:
201 carries, 1,103 yards, 5.5-yard average, four touchdowns.
Here are Adrian Peterson's rushing totals through the Vikings' first 10 games this season:
195 carries, 1,128 yards, 5.8 average, seven touchdowns.
Forget NFL Comeback Player of the Year. Peterson has a much bigger trophy within his powerful grasp: NFL Most Valuable Player.
