Sooners in the NFL: Week 13

Former Oklahoma running back Adrian Peterson became the first player in NFL history to rush for a touchdown with six different teams.

Another Sunday has come and gone with NFL Week 13 in the books just short of Monday night’s collision between the New England Patriots and the Buffalo Bills.

For former Oklahoma running back Adrian Peterson, it was another triumphant return to the field as he made his debut with the Seattle Seahawks after being waived by the Tennessee Titans earlier in the year.

Peterson and the Seahawks hosted the rival San Francisco 49ers on Sunday afternoon trying to right the ship after a recent rough patch put Seattle on the brink of a lost season.

But, with the help of a Peterson rushing touchdown, the Seahawks managed to get a must-have 30-23 win to move to 4-8 on the season and keep some hopes of postseason play alive.

The touchdown from the Sooner legend not only helped his team win but put him in exclusive NFL company.

With Sunday’s score, Peterson became the first player in NFL history to run for a touchdown with six different teams.

The Minnesota Vikings, the Washington Football Team, the Arizona Cardinals, the Detroit Lions, the Tennessee Titans and now, the Seattle Seahawks.

A storied career gets one more check mark to the Hall-of-Fame resume.
