With his Vikings a lackluster 2-11 and a left ankle performing at just 85 percent, it makes sense for Adrian Peterson to shut it down for the season and come back strong in 2012. But he has a reason to suit up on Sunday. "It's very important, especially for my fantasy team owners," Peterson told the Minnesota Star Tribune. "They've been giving me a hard time." And speaking for all fantasy owners who are in the playoffs and needs a strong game for Peterson, let me publicly thank AP for thinking of us. Now go out and get us some points!
Today's Tim Tebow News
Panthers receiver Steve Smith said its the Broncos defense that has made them winners and Tebow "wouldn't be on my son's flag football team" ... Jockey Underwear, which Tebow endorses, is giving away $1 million in prizes if the Broncos win the Super Bowl ... Forty students at Riverhead High School in Long Island were caught Tebowing in the school's hallway, which resulted in a one-day suspension for the two kids who organized it.
New York's Top Player?
While Tebow works his magic on the field, Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez is making his presence felt off of it. The Jets quarterback was spotted checking into a New York hotel at 3 a.m. Tuesday with a brunette who stayed until 8:30 the next morning. Two hours later, he was welcoming a pretty blonde into his room at the same hotel. Take that Tim!
