Adrian Peterson's 134 rushing yds are the 2nd-most all-time in a player's 1st game following a midseason team change. The only player with more is Herschel Walker, who had 148 in 1989 in his 1st game for Minnesota after the famous trade between the Vikings and Cowboys.

Peterson used his footwork/vision to find running lanes and he also showed a burst through the hole with the ability to finish.
