Adrian Peterson shared his reason for playing Sunday vs. the Carolina Panthers in the wake of his two-year-old son's tragic death

Here he is delivering the pregame speech to his team. 

Here is a transcript of what he appears to be saying in the huddle:

"Hey, I just gonna let you know, I love you guys, man. I'm about to ride out for four quarters with you guys. Any of you guys would do the same. I know you guys would do the same. Let's go out there and get the 'W' man. Let's go get it on three. 1, 2, 3,  go get it.
