Adrian Peterson wins NFC offensive player of the week award

Through three games, Vikings running back Adrian Peterson has outperformed Titans running back Chris Johnson.

And Peterson has added another piece of hardware to his collection.  (If, that is, this specific award entails hardware at all.)

Peterson is the NFC offensive player of the week, based on gaining 160 yards rushing on 23 carries in a 24-10 win over the Lions.  His two touchdowns included an 80-yard burst to paydirt.

It's his fourth offensive player of the week award, and his first since November 9, 2008, when he gained 192 yards against the Packers.
