The 2013 MVP was in full form dancing and playing Kinect games on Xbox 360 in New Orleans.
Adrian Peterson loves to play games. The Assassin’s Creed fan has been working with Microsoft Kinect as part of the NFL 60 program to get kids active. Before the Super Bowl in New Orleans, NFL fans selected the Minnesota Vikings running back as the Fed Ex Air & Ground NFL Player of the Year. The 10th annual awards, announced during the 2nd annual NFL Honors show, was just one of the awards the 2013 NFL MVP walked away with. Peterson talks about his video game skills in this exclusive video interview.
Peterson rushed his way into the history books finishing the year with 2,097 yards rushing, second-most in league history and just nine yards shy of breaking Hall of Famer Eric Dickerson’s NFL record (2,105). Peterson, who was second in the NFL in carries (348), tied Earl Campbell for the most games with at least 150 rushing yards in a single season (seven). He scored 12 touchdowns on the ground and led the NFL in yards per game (131.1). Peterson accumulated 1,313 yards in eight games (Weeks 7 through 15), the most over any eight-game span in a single season in NFL history. Selected as the NFC’s starting running back for the 2013 Pro Bowl, Peterson was nominated for FedEx Ground Player of the Week seven times, winning three times. This is the second time Peterson has been named FedEx Ground Player of the Year (2008).
