Last Sunday, Vikings running back Adrian Peterson ran for 199 yards against the Packers, giving him 2,097 yards for the year. That was nine short of breaking the single-season record set by Eric Dickerson in 1984.
Naturally, some enterprising Packers fan decided to celebrate Peterson's second-place finish.
