Peterson put up a season best 177 total yards on 28 touches in Week 9 at Dallas. He'll face a Redskins defense that held San Diego to 69 yards rushing in Week 9, but still ranks 22nd overall in yards allowed.
The Redskins have surrendered 116.6 yards weekly, and stopping Ryan Mathews is a completely different game than stopping Peterson. Christian Ponder showed the ability to keep defenses honest, at least for a half, in Week 9 at Dallas, and more importantly, the Vikings stayed close enabling Peterson to see a nice uptick in carries. He'll hope to score for the third consecutive week.
