EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) — Adrian Peterson’s push for 2,000 yards rushing wouldn’t happen without solid blocking in front of him.

Minnesota’s offensive linemen, tight ends, fullbacks and wide receivers are well aware of Peterson’s opportunity, and they’re hoping it happens for him and for them. With a league-leading 1,600 yards, Peterson needs to average 134 yards over the last three games to become the seventh player in NFL history to reach the mark.

Fullback Jerome Felton might be the most unheralded of an already-under-the-radar group, since there aren’t any official statistics for blocking. This is his first season with the Vikings. Felton says the chance to play with Peterson was what pushed him to sign with them.
