Each Sunday we'll recap the week that was in the NFL with the top tweets from across Twitter.
Adrian Peterson demolished defenses all season at a near record-breaking pace. He finished Sunday with 2,097 yards, nine short of the single-season record.
It's bittersweet coming up 9 yds short of the record but I came into this game w my main focus being getting a "W". Mission accomplished!— Adrian Peterson (@AdrianPeterson) December 31, 2012
And I can honestly say it never occurred to me to bobble the snap to give AP another chance at the record. I think that's a good thing.— Chris Kluwe (@ChrisWarcraft) December 31, 2012

Tebow chants picking up here. It's like a bizzarro version of the end of "Rudy."— Brian Costello (@BrianCoz) December 30, 2012
Andy Reid's time in Philly is also mercifully over.
Giants fans chanting "Eagles suck." Cheer would be much louder if this was at the Linc.— BleedingGreenNation (@BleedingGreen) December 30, 2012

The Saints can boast it had a historically awful defense.

Like Robert Griffin III and Andrew Luck, Russell Wilson found his way into the NFL record book.
Oh Gregg, you never disappoint.
