Adrian Peterson named NFC’s top offensive player for November

By Andrew Krammer

Adrian Peterson is running through the NFL, and picking up a few accolades on the way.

Peterson, 30, was named the NFC’s top offensive player of the month as he became just one of five running backs in league history to run for more than 600 yards, five touchdowns and average at least five yards per carry in the month of November, according to an NFL spokesperson. Peterson topped 100 yards in four of five games last month, including a 203-yard outing in Oakland.

It’s Peterson’s second Player of the Month award, the first coming in December 2012 just before he was named the NFL’s Most Valuable Player.

Peterson has more than the length of a football field lead (126 yards) on the rushing title with 1,164 rushing yards. He would be the first running back age 30 or older to claim the rushing crown since Curtis Martin in 2004.
