Adrian Peterson made his Redskins debut on Friday night against the Broncos, he looked a lot like the AP of old. AP was running like a man much younger than 33 and showed little signs of rust.

Peterson gained 56 yards on 11 carries. The debut was so impressive that fellow NFC East running back Ezekiel Elliott took note of it.
MOMMA THERE GO THAT MAN ! @AdrianPeterson

There goes that man indeed. Peterson could give the Redskins a legit running game this season and they could make a run at the NFC East.
