Switch teams now because Minnesota Vikings is going to win the Super Bowl 2016, at least that’s what Adrian Peterson says.
In an interview with MMQB.com, Peterson says, “I don’t spend too much time thinking about it. But it’s a seed planted in my brain, and it’s sticking there. Everything in me is championship, championship and then breaking records.”
Fresh from a win himself, Peterson took home the NFL rushing title last season with 1,485 yards, ESPN reports. His career high in rushing comes at 2,097 yards and is currently at 11, 675 yards.
Meanwhile, Sports Illustrated reports Peterson ended last year with 327 carries for 1,485 yards and 11 touchdowns.
Aside from winning the Super Bowl next year, Peterson’s goals also include breaking Emmitt’s rushing records of 18,355 yards and Eric Dickerson’s single-season rushing record of 2105 yards which he just missed by a short 13 yards during his career high rushing in 2012 for the Minnesota Vikings.
Minnesota Vikings is currently sitting at the 4th position rush yards and is coming back to the Super Bowl in September with a complete injury-free team. They also have recruited German wide receiver Moritz Boehringer to fill their largely missing position. The German who watched Adrian Peterson play on YouTube also got a reassuring call from his inspiration last May 7.
Of Boehringer finding him on YouTube, Peterson is just amazed at how his playing career can serve as an inspiration to others who are also keen to play football. Right now, the 31-year old player is concentrating on having the best playing physique.
“I honestly think I can do this, and do it at a high level, until I’m 40. I can, but will I? Honestly, I don’t think I will,” he says.

The 6’1″ currently spends his off-season time at home in Minnesota while devoting 3 to 5 hours maintaining his playing form, putting in as much or even more work than the newbies.
As for winning the Super Bowl 2016 season, Peterson ends his MMQB.com interview saying,”We are going to have a good chance to win it this year—win everything,” he said of the 2016 Vikings. “Sit back and watch. Sit back and watch. You can be like, ‘I thought you guys were at least a couple of years away.’ Nope. You sit back and watch, this year.”
