PETERSON WINS RUSHING TITLE

Posted by Mike Florio on December 28, 2008, 11:37 p.m. EST

Vikings running back Adrian Peterson finished his second NFL season as the league’s leading rusher.

Peterson churned up 1,760 yards, 61 more than Michael Turner of the Falcons. Peterson averaged 4.8 yards per carry.

DeAngelo Williams of the Panthers finished third, with 1,515 yards.

Peterson’s performance could generate some MVP votes, but the favorite at this point seems to be Peyton Manning of the Colts, who recovered from a serious knee injury to lead his team to nine straight wins.
