The scoring run also tied him with Jim Brown for fifth place on the all-time list with 106 rushing touchdowns.
All gas no brakes. Career-long touchdown for @AdrianPeterson.

Peterson also became the oldest player with multiple 50-yard touchdown runs this season.
He ran 64 yards for a touchdown against the New York Giants in Week 8.
But the long run did not lead to a great night, as Peterson finished with 98 yards on nine carries.
Hard to hate on Peterson for his night, but you have to do more.
