Despite his two-year old son dying just a few days earlier, Adrian Peterson suited up for the Vikings and played on Sunday.

AP explained his mindset afterwards, saying that "any bad I try to take good from it." And while not much good came for the Vikings on the football field Sunday, you can clearly tell there's a bond here.

Peterson talks -- I think -- about laying it on the line for four quarters for the Vikings and clearly appreciates them being there for him during a tough time.

Great post from the Vikings on social media:
