It didn’t take long for the Minnesota Vikings to figure out Brett Favre’s best play.
Walk up to the line. Take the snap. Hand it to Adrian Peterson.
After two weeks, Peterson leads all NFL rushers with 272 yards and four touchdowns, and has been the driving factor in Minnesota’s 2-0 start.
Sunday, the showdown: The Vikings play host to the surprising San Francisco 49ers, also 2-0, who have the NFC’s No. 2 rusher in Frank Gore. Against Seattle on Sunday, Gore rushed for 207 yards, with the two longest touchdown runs of his career, 79 and 80 yards.
