The Redskins got skunked by the Cowboys yesterday.
But 34-year old Adrian Peterson had a moment in the Fed-Ex Field sun.
Peterson’s early touchdown gave the Redskins a 7-0 lead, and in the process he passed the legendary Jim Brown on the all-time rushing touchdowns list. Brown, considered by many the greatest NFL player ever, and Peterson had been tied at 106 touchdowns through the offseason.
Peterson is now fifth all time, behind Emmitt Smith, LaDainian Tomlinson, Marcus Allen and Walter Payton. Good company.
