Adrian Peterson is calling it again: Touchdown. On his first carry of the season.
Just as he said he predicted last year.
"Yeah, I might as well speak it: Touchdown, first run," Peterson said Thursday.
A year ago, Peterson, who hadn't played during the preseason, called his shot -- partially in jest -- during a running backs meeting with teammates Toby Gerhartand M att Asiata before the first game of the season against the Detroit Lions.
"I was like, 'Man, I'm going to take the first carry to the house,'" Peterson said. "I really didn't think about it. I really didn't mean it when I said it. And then when it happened, I came to the sideline and they reminded me, 'Oh, man, you said you were going to do that!'"
Peterson, of course, took his first carry for 78-yard touchdown.
"I'll say it again," Peterson said Thursday. "Hopefully it'll work out the same way." (ESPN.com)
